3 Tips to Reduce Anxiety During Quarantine

Coronavirus pandemic has people feeling anxious all over the world. With more countries in quarantine, people are feeling on edge and anxious all the time. Feeling anxious in such an environment is normal, but feeling like this all the time is not good for your health.

However, with a little nudge in the right direction, you can control your anxiety and get back to living your normal life like you used to. Here are some tips that will help you out with reducing your anxiety and make sure you feel better.

Don’t Drink Too Much Caffeine

You may be inclined to drink more coffee to get your work done, but don’t do that. Caffeine is one of the most well-known anxiety-inducers. This means you will be avoiding drinking caffeinated soft drinks as well. Dry to replace the coffee with tea, fresh juice or even plain water to replenish your daily vitamins and give you a clearer mind.

Focus On the Moment

Instead of focusing on everything that is going wrong in your world, focus on what is happening at the moment. Stop obsessing about the future and think about what you have right now. Take a pause, breathe in, pay attention to your family around you and focus on improving your present. It will not only give you a much-needed mood booster but also allow you to manage the current situation better.

Talk to People

If you are feeling anxious, the best way to relieve your anxiety is by talking to someone around you. Since you are social distancing and isolating yourself from your friends and family, you will need to have one person in your life who you can count on. Try to talk to your life partner, your best friend or your parents. Share your bad thoughts with them and they will help you get off the ledge just a little bit.

This is a testing time for everyone and all of us are trying to make sense of the world around us. Be safe and take all necessary precautions. Only go out of the house when you absolutely need to, set up an automatic hand sanitizer dispenser or get a simple hand sanitizer dispenser stand and use it frequently. Stay safe and stay connected!
