Can’t stop checking the CDC website for COVID-19 updates? You deserve a break, and these 9 calming tools can give you just the breather you need...

Take a breath and give yourself a pat on the back. You’ve successfully managed to look away from breaking news long enough to find some resources that might actually help with your stress.

That’s no easy thing right now.

Experts are recommending social distancing and self-quarantine to help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), sending most of us into isolation.

It makes sense if you haven’t been doing much at all except ruminating on updates about the virus and the availability of toilet paper.

So what can you do about your coronavirus anxiety?

I’m glad you asked, because I’ve collected a whole list of tools to help your mental health during the COVID-19 scare.

This list could also apply to any moment when breaking news headlines are all-consuming and hard to look away from.Think of it this way: Reducing your stress is actually one of the best ways you can deal with this crisis. Too much stress can hurt!

Think of it this way: Reducing your stress is actually one of the best ways you can deal with this crisis. Too much stress can hurt your immunity and your mental health.

Plus, you just plain deserve to finally feel some relief after spiraling through your anxieties for this long.

First things first: There’s nothing wrong with you for feeling anxious right now.

Ignoring the stress or judging yourself for feeling it is tempting, but it probably won’t help in the end.

Acknowledging your feelings — even if they’re scary — can help you cope in a healthy way.

And I’ve got news for you: You’re not the only one who’s freaking out. The news is legitimately frightening, and fear is a normal, natural response.

You’re not alone.

If you’re already living with a chronic illness, then COVID-19 might be especially frightening. And if you’re living with a mental illness such as an anxiety disorder, then the constant barrage of headlines might have you on the edge of feeling like you’re losing control.

There are plenty of resources Trusted Source out there about how to directly deal with coronavirus anxiety, and it’s important to have those strategies in your toolbox when you need them.

But for this list, we’re going to take a break from all of that....Becau
