Description
The Covid pandemic has had a major effect on our lives. These challenges we are facing can increase our stress levels resulting in an increase in anxiety. We need to social distance according to Public Health recommendations which make us feel isolated and alone. Let’s talk about how this stress has caused some of the following in our lives—fear, frustrations, worry, anger, sadness, increase usage of tobacco, alcohol, and other substances. We will talk about healthy ways to cope with stress by taking care of our physical bodies, our mental health and helping others including our children.
