Top tips on anxiety management during COVID19

It is OK to feel vulnerable and overwhelmed as we read the news about the outbreak, especially if you have experienced trauma or a mental health problem in the past, or if you have a long-term physical health condition that makes you more vulnerable to the effects of the coronavirus.

  • Limit the amount of time you spend reading/watching the news/social media about the virus. Consider muting or unfollowing accounts or hashtags that cause you to feel anxious.
  • Use trusted sources of information. You can get up-to-date information and advice on the virus;
  • Try to stay connected – Try and keep in touch with your friends and family, by telephone, email or social media, or contact a helpline for emotional support.
  • Focus on the things you can do to look after our physical and mental health; We should be aware of avoiding increasing habits that may not be helpful in the long term, like smoking and drinking. Do stress management techniques, keep active and eat a balanced diet.
