Sage Grazer from Frame, a mental health platform, offers advice on how to handle pandemic anxiety. She says people are adapting to a new way of living, struggling to cope with loss, and trying to establish boundaries between work and home. Signs of anxiety can be physical, such as fatigue or stomach ache, or non-physical, such as indecisiveness or dread. Ways of coping with anxiety include taking deep breaths and challenging your thoughts. Grazer adds that there’s no wrong time to seek outside help. If you have a friend struggling with anxiety, opening a dialogue with them may be the best way to help. Frame also offers digital workshops that can be beneficial.
