5 Ways to Manage Your Coronavirus Anxieties

23.09.2020, Company: University of New York in Prague, s.r.o.

Well, by now I’m sure you’ve all heard of the Coronavirus (it was in all the newspapers!)

Is there any wonder, then, that some of us might be finding the internal mechanisms to cope with all the negativity and uncertainty…a bit challenging to access and engage in a comforting way? In light of all the conflicting reports regarding the reported dangers, and the varying opinions with regard to the safety measures (to include extended lockdowns!) that might be effective in avoiding the worst of the danger, no one should be surprised that uncertainty-induced anxieties might emerge from time to time.
