We are living in unprecedented times right now. The current crisis has hit hard and swiftly. Living in times of crisis causes stress, overwhelm, fear, and loneliness. We all need to know how to cope during a crisis. We need to understand how to care for ourselves and our loved ones when living through a crisis.
It is easy to forget proper coping skills and become worried, anxious, stressed, impatient, and angry. But these thoughts and behaviors do us no good as it is unsustainable to stay in ‘fear and flight mode’ all the time. We oftentimes do not know how long a crisis will last. So, our best bet is do what we can so that we can sustain.
