Staying calm during the coronavirus pandemic

What can I do if I’m feeling stressed or anxious?

  • Plan ahead. Make sure you have adequate supplies at home and plans for childcare and working from home, if that is what you are doing.
  • Establish routines and schedules. Do you have kids who are home from school? Consider drawing up and posting a daily schedule, with times for learning, play, exercise, chores and other items.
  • Practice mindfulness by focusing on things within your control, such as your daily routine, and things in your life that are positive, such as family or friends.
  • Exercise. Take walks and get fresh air. Build this into your daily schedule at regular intervals.
  • Incorporate joy into your schedule too! Play with your kids or a pet. Listen to music. Watch a funny movie.
  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Limit media exposure and stay informed with trusted sources.
  • Get adequate sleep and limit screen time before bed.
  • Remember it’s normal to feel anxious during stressful times. Be kind to yourself. It’s important to take care of yourself so you can help take care of others.
