As of 2/20/21

Undoubtedly this time will be stressful for many, with limited access to friends and family members and the global situation changing on a daily basis. Here are some strategies we can use to help minimize our stress during this time!

  • Use this time to learn stress management techniques
    • Meditation- try apps such as Calm, Headspace, Insight Timer
    • Podcasts such as Meditative story and Anxiety Slayer
    • Yoga
    • Journaling
    • Crafting- painting, drawing
    • Books: Many public libraries are closed, but if you have a library card, you can access free digital books, audiobooks, and magazines at https://www.overdrive.com/apps/libby/
  • Limit unnecessary exposure to the news.
    • Unfollow the unnecessary news accounts on Instagram, Twitter, and the like. Staying informed is important, try to limit news to once daily, for example, either in the morning or evening. A good way to do this is to ask your “hey google” or “Alexa” to update you on the news to get a rundown of the latest headlines without feeling overwhelmed. Additionally, make sure you are getting your news from reliable sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or World Health Organization (WHO) or this guide!
