Limit Your News Intake
As a news junkie, I'm constantly scrolling through Twitter, but seeing the latest closures and statistics about COVID-19 has been making me feel more worried than informed lately. That's why trauma therapist Shannon Thomas recommends checking the news once in the morning, afternoon, and evening. To help filter it out of your social feeds, mute certain words or accounts that fill your timeline with news about the outbreak. "The saturation is going to cause us to be extremely anxious," Thomas told POPSUGAR.
She also suggested signing up for email alerts from the Centres For Disease Control if you want to get the necessary information without having to go on social media.
