If you’ve been feeling anxious about what life will be like after Coronavirus you’re not the only one. Right now, more businesses are starting to re-open, and life is beginning to feel a bit more normal.
Most of us have been spending the vast majority of our time at home for many months now, and have established a “new normal.”
In fact, some people now prefer working, shopping, and connecting with loved ones virtually.
There is still so much we don’t know about Coronavirus which can bring on stress and anxiety.
If you’re feeling anxious about getting back out there, here’s what to do…
Go At Your Our Pace:
Just because some restaurants are open, doesn’t mean you have to go to the most popular one today. Do some research and see which restaurants have little – no foot traffic. Once you get more comfortable spending time in smaller establishments, you can slowly work your way up.
Chances are the first few outings will make you feel awkward or uncomfortable. But as time goes on, it will get better.
Focus On What You Can Control:
It may feel like you have little – no control right now, but you do! You have control over how often you wash your hands, what establishments you go to, who you associate with, and much more.
Talk To Someone You Trust:
Simply getting your worries and anxieties off your chest can make you feel so much better! When we get so worked up, it can be hard to think logically. If you’re feeling anxious right now, the best thing you can do is talk to a friend, family member, or healthcare professional. Who knows, your loved ones may be going through the exact same thing. If so, you can support one another along the way. Learn More
