Tips on how to deal with stress during crisis.

   The world is rapidly evolving due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It has forced lifestyle changes that some people can’t really cope up. Stress, and anxiety levels are now at an all-time high.

  In an article “Coping with Stress” published in, fear and anxiety about a new disease and its implications can cause strong emotions in both adults and children. The same article cites that public health actions such as social distancing can cause feelings of loneliness and isolation.

  The reality is stress will always be a part of our lives. If managed properly, it can be a driving force to reach your goals in life, but if not, it can lead to depression and all its bad implications. So here are a few tips to effectively manage one’s stress levels during this pandemic:

Strengthen your mental well-being by meditating. 

   Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing, meditation, and relaxation even at the comfort of your home. It is clinically proven to reduce stress, blood pressure, and heart rate.

  Yoga can be done by anyone and at anytime of the day without any timeframe. But for people who are just not into it, a simple 10-minute meditation everyday can do wonders for mental health. Meditation can also be as simple as winding down somewhere quiet and taking deep breaths to clear the mind.

Seek support from family and friends when things get too much.

   Take time off and reach out to family and friends. They may be the best people to lend their ears and give emotional support. Even quick, regular video calls with loved ones can do wonders to get a chance to vent out emotions that may cause anxieties.

Stay active to keep moving forward.

  Every health professional would always include this in their topmost tips for relieving stress and anxiety. Exercise has a lot of mental and bodily benefits. One immediate effect is the increase of endorphins or “happy” hormones in the blood. Happy hormones quickly change one’s mood for the better.

  An online seller named Tanya, cross-stitches whenever she feels the onset of boredom and stress. Advertising manager Jamie Silva’s propensity to smoke cigarettes has always been her quick fix to stress and anxiety. However, the long-term health hazards of traditional cigarettes far outweigh the stress he experiences because of work.

  Upon hearing of a heat-not-burn device called MOK, a better, less hazardous alternative to smoking, Jamie immediately made the switch.

  MOK is a revolutionary HnB device that allows smokers to enjoy that same tobacco experience but with reduced risks. Since it simply heats tobacco rather than burning it, the harmful toxins & second-hand smoke associated with combustion are eliminated.
