Give your mind and body a break by trying these six ways to stay calm. Do something new to feel your anxiety take a backseat so you can still enjoy life and make smart choices at the same time.


1. Stay at Home


You might feel like you should get out and help people in your community, which is a good thing to do. However, contagious diseases spread faster when people travel and hang out in crowded areas. The best thing you can do is stay safe at home and keep calm in your living space. Relax on your couch, take a nap or practice yoga on your porch. The longer you’re at home, the less you’ll help the disease potentially spread in your community.
