Why Being Aware of Your Stress Patterns Can Help Ease Your Coronavirus Anxiety

An awareness of your stressors is the first step to coping.

If you’ve been feeling anxious lately, you’re far from alone. The coronavirus pandemic has altered almost every aspect of how many of us live our lives. As Joey Hubbard, Thrive Global’s Chief Training Officer, explains in the video above, when the brain senses danger, the body’s stress response kicks in — which is what many people are experiencing right now. Fortunately, knowing this simple fact is half the battle when it comes to managing negative thoughts and anxiety. Once you’re aware of your thought patterns, you can start to influence them, and actively change the way you respond to stress.  Check out the Thriving Mind video above for more.
