Feelings of worry, stress or fear can be scary and affect your mental and physical health. It’s important to remember that these feelings are normal, especially during hard times, and can vary in severity from mild uneasiness to intense emotions depending on the person.
Feelings of stress occur in both adults and children. These include, but are not limited to:
How can I cope with feelings of stress? How can I help a loved one cope?
How do I take care of myself while practicing social distancing?
Knowing which tools are available is a good first step when it comes to dealing with feelings of stress and anxiety.
Everyone experiences — and manages — stress in different ways. If these self-care strategies don’t work for you, consider reaching out to loved ones or one of our local resources below for additional support and #BeTheDifference for yourself. Remember, you are not alone.
