If you’ve been feeling anxious or overwhelmed by emotion in this season of change brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, be assured that you are experiencing a very normal reaction.
Coronavirus is a threat. Its onset was sudden and shocking, and the daily experience of it has been prolonged and unfolding. That’s a lot for anyone to process; a lot for anyone to come to terms with.
But at Anglicare, we understand that it’s one thing to identify the cause of anxiety and come to accept it as normal, but quite another, entirely, to learn how to manage anxious feelings. Especially in such an uncertain time as this.
Jane Thomas, Senior Counsellor at Anglicare, offers some practical ideas on how to manage anxiety during this coronavirus pandemic – from building a new routine, to learning to work out your agitation. As well as additional information with helpful resources and contacts to support you through this time.
