• Are you social distancing due to the coronavirus crisis?
  • Is the current worldwide pandemic stressing you out?
  • Are you nervous, sad, unsure, angry, or annoyed by the whole virus thing?
  • Ever sense if you may or may not have a steady job in the near future?
  • Has the fear of the unknown increased your anxiety level?
  • Are you sick and tired of being cooped up?
  • Ever wonder if this whole thing is going to be over soon?
  • Would you consider social distancing online counseling?

If you have answered “yes” to few or most of these questions, this pandemic has affected you. During this time, if you are experiencing a wide range of emotions, you are not alone. The feelings of being stressed out, worried, angry, annoyed, anxious, or depressed are rather common responses to such an event. Although having such feelings are common, they are not at all reassuring. You may also notice changes in what you are thinking or what you are doing that may be adding to your stress. Though you are not in control of the outbreak or the spread, you can improve and control your coping strategies.
