Coping with Election Stress
Mental Health and Coping during COVID-19
During these unprecedented times, everyone has different reactions to the burden of stress. Mental health is an important part of overall health and wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It may also affect how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices during an emergency.
You may experience:
- Increased stress and anxiety beyond your normal levels
- Concerns about balancing school, work, and relationships from home
- Anger and anxiety about having to confine your daily movement to one space
- A desire to use unhealthy coping mechanisms that interfere with normal eating, sleeping, and self-care behaviors, such as eating too much or too little, and excessive use of drugs or alcohol
- Boredom and frustration because you may not be able to go about your daily routine
- Symptoms of depression, such as feelings of hopelessness, changes in appetite, or sleeping too little or too much
How to support yourself:
- Connect with others. Reach out to people you trust using text messaging, the telephone, emails, video chats, and social media to keep in touch and talk about how you are doing.
- Set a limit on media consumption.
- Maintain a routine and take care of your body. Stick to a sleep schedule and eat a healthy diet.
- Identify things you are hopeful for or grateful for in your life.
- Infuse some variety into your daily activities. Try something new you have been meaning to do.
