Remind Yourself That This Is Temporary
We don't know a lot about what the future holds with COVID-19. But we do know that the measures that have been put in place are a temporary solution to help protect our communities over the long-term. "This is not our new norm. This is not going to last forever," Thomas said. "We're in the middle of it, and it's very difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But we already have other folks out in the world who are getting to the other side of this." (Now there's some good news.)
In the meantime, embrace what you can control in the situation, and know that you're not the only one who feels worried. "Often we can feel alone in our anxieties, but the past few weeks have demonstrated just how much a whole globe can come together in their feelings," Dr. Svanberg told POPSUGAR.
