Manage Anxiety During The Lockdown

Manage Anxiety During The Lockdown

Lockdown situation can make you feel isolated and separated from family and friends. This feeling of social isolation often results in depression.

Add to this, disturbing statistics seen on media platforms, and stories about high profile personalities becoming infected further elevate severe health anxiety and fear.

Laws restricting sporting activities and exercise, plus job uncertainty and income losses, all raise the stress levels, sometimes leading to acute depression.

Coping strategy, here, must begin with acceptance of the circumstances and its effect on your health. If you experience sleeping problems or lack of concentration, then talk with your doctor via our telehealth service. But if you have severe agitation and/or low mood, or feelings of panic, with or without, episodes of rapid breathing or excessive sweating, then we recommend that you visit the hospital to seek help.
