Anxiety, change, isolation and some simple strategies.



More time at home, worrisome conditions and news. Social anxiety is part of this. Here are a few resources for managing the stress/anxiety of dramatic change and more time for worry that many of us are experiencing right now.


Resources:

Emotional Freedom Tapping is an effective and simple technique that can be done with a professional or at home on your own with a little guidance. These two resources are ones I rely on for support with challenges. If you are really struggling, I recommend reaching out a professional. If you'd like a referral, I'd be happy to assist.

Return to center as often as you can during this challenging time, take a few extra breaths, step away for minute, cultivate thoughts of gratitude and love as often as you can.
