Quote by Colette Lord
I know that right now it might be really hard not to give into the panic and paranoia, but we must try. As it stands right now, officials in San Diego say that the risk to the general population is low.
Besides the recommendations out there about how to take care of your health in this situation, it is also important to attend to your mental health. Practice the self-care skills that you have.
Limit your exposure to social media and those sites and discussions that elevate your anxiety and panic.
If you or your family have to stay home due to school or work closures, make use of the time in a positive, healthy way. Spend time together playing games, making art, watching movies. Maybe now you will have the time to do some spring cleaning, etc. Do things that are unrelated to the current situation to help get your mind off of things.
