Emotional Well-being During the COVID-19 Outbreak

The outbreak of corona-virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may be stressful for people. It’s easy to go about our busy lives and not notice the impact the pandemic can have on our emotional wellbeing.

Our bodies have built-in warning systems which alert us and these are the signs that we need to pay attention to. 

An outbreak such as big as the corona-virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may be stressful for people.

The first thing to remember is that, everyone reacts differently to stressful situations.

How you respond to the outbreak can depend on your background, the things that make you different from other people,

and the community you live in.

Coping Tips

-People that are feeling emotional distress related to COVID-19 can take actions to help support themselves and others.

-Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress.

-Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.

-Set a limit on media consumption, including social media, local or national news.

-Stay active. Make sure to get enough sleep and rest.

-Stay hydrated and avoid excessive amounts of caffeine or alcohol.

-Eat healthy foods when possible. Connect with loved ones and others who may be experiencing stress about the outbreak.
