Feeling anxious around the COVID-19 spread is a normal reaction. Anxiety is rooted in worrying about the unknown and uncertainty.
Anxiety is associated with one of our most primal instincts to avoid threats and protect us from harm. Fear is a basic emotion. Pushing it away or using distraction works some times, and it may be necessary for short-term relief. However, those strategies are not always the best solution to manage fear in the long-term. We all need to set time aside to connect with this emotion and allow ourselves to feel it so it gets processed. Talking about it, writing about it, making art, dancing, expressing it with the body... By accompanying this with self-care, we are giving us the space to make sense of the current situation.
