We have been living through a global pandemic for over a year now, and more people than ever are experiencing health-related anxiety. Often our anxiety is connected to feeling a lack of control, fear of the unknown, or other inner turmoil. Learning to acknowledge our feelings and then to work through them is a great goal to set. Here are a few suggestions to help you get through your health-related anxiety


Take News and Media Breaks


Social media can drive our lives if we let it. Many of us hop onto different social media platforms throughout the day. We receive updates from friends, photos, news content, and the goings-on in the world. This barrage of information, which frequently can be incorrect, can become overwhelming. The news has a goal: to get as many viewers as possible. Remember to take breaks from social media and the news if you start to feel anxious and overwhelmed by what you are reading and watching. You may also try to make a point to find a few happy news stories to read as well. 


Educate Yourself


Education is a powerful tool. Take the time to educate yourself on the issues and situations you find that give you anxiety. By learning more about what worries you, you can feel more informed and empowered by your knowledge. You can then use your education to help others feel comfort and empowerment as well. If we all work together, we can create a society that is informed. 


Reach Out to Professionals


Managing your health and mental well-being is essential. Often different people experience different symptoms, making it difficult to determine the cause of the symptoms. If you notice a change in your health or experience symptoms you are unfamiliar with, reach out to a professional. Whether you are experiencing something physical or mental, there is no shame in receiving help or support. 


Health-related anxiety is at an all-time high for many people. Sometimes we may not even understand what is causing our anxiety. Everyone experiences anxious feelings at one point in life or another; when these feelings begin disrupting our daily lives, we should consider reaching out for professional help. Here at The Guest House, we understand that the global pandemic has affected everyone in different ways. We are here to help and support you on your journey to healing and happiness.
