Tips to Manage Stress

  • Talk about it – discussing your feelings with trusted others can help you feel less alone. Facetime, Skype, and similar videochat services are a great way to minimize spreading germs, and yet feel connection and support.
  • Get plenty of sleep, as well as regular “down-time” to rest and recuperate.
  • Strive to eat in a balanced and healthy way.
  • Practice deep breathing or other forms of relaxation.
  • Avoid excessive use of alcohol or drugs to self-soothe or self-medicate.
  • Many people understandably want to stay updated on the latest health information and recommendations, but consider limiting yourself to checking 1-2 reliable sources of information, once per day.”
