The outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in unprecedented changes to our way of life, with the impacts continuing to change every day. Freedoms we took for granted, such as being able to buy what we want from the supermarket and going to a yoga class, have all shifted in a matter of weeks. Individuals and families are self-isolating to shield themselves from risk of infection, workplaces are encouraging people to work from home, and vulnerable groups are dealing with very real fears about their physical health.
Understandably, in these uncertain times and in the ever-changing landscape, the world’s anxieties are running high. Regardless of nationality, background, social status or location, we are united in fears of what the future will bring for us.
Therefore, we at Acacia Connection EAP are sending out our psychologist’s top tips to help you manage the inevitable anxiety over the next few months.
