According to the American Psychological Association, 59% of Americans reported that the coronavirus is seriously impacting their day-to-day lives. When you have a lot of anxiety, it becomes tough to make reasonable choices. That’s concerning, as many families are faced with high-stake decisions during the pandemic—decisions involving health, livelihoods, and employment.
If you’re feeling anxious, consider these techniques to make sound decisions:
- Engage in a calming activity that makes you feel good.
- Charge up by eating healthy, sleeping enough, and exercising often.
- Determine what you can (and can’t) control.
At the end of the day, everyone is making the best decisions possible with the information at hand during the pandemic. Go easy on yourself.
