Dealing with Anxiety during COVID-19
Dr. Aaron Banister - April 03, 2020
Uncertainty is the fuel for anxiety and in the midst of the current pandemic there is an abundance of uncertainty!  Whenever uncertainty exists our brain has a wonderful way of filling in the blanks.  And many times those blanks are filled in with negative predictions and anticipated difficulties.  This tendency leads to increased feelings of anxiety.  Anxiety is a fear based emotion that can disrupt normal functioning.  It is important to understand what anxiety is and how to cope with it in a healthy manner.
