We all can’t wait for coronavirus and social distancing to be a thing of the past. Until then, COVID-19 is clearly still with us. We can’t avoid it.
A struggling economy, lost jobs and people dealing with increased stress have brought a surge in people needing help with COVID’s emotional impacts. In addition to physical ailments, the CDC lists psychiatric symptoms among COVID’s long-term complications.
To help cope with COVID and avoid mental health problems that outlast the pandemic: limit watching the news, focus on facts, take care of your body, make time to unwind, connect with others and set goals.
