The Coronavirus Pandemic: Managing Stress & Anxiety

Have you been experiencing increased anxiety and stress during the recent coronavirus pandemic? You’re not alone.

COVID-19 or the novel coronavirus is everywhere. From news reports to water cooler conversations, this new and serious virus is being discussed heavily. Online you may have seen coverage that includes the so-called, panic of grocery shoppers.  Slowly the accusations that media and people are over-reacting have begun to fade. More people, including elected officials, see the severity of this global health scare.

Here at Healthnetics, we offer premium Pure Hemp CBD products. So, it is worth noting that there is no solid research on CBD and coronavirus. Do not believe unsubstantiated rumors online that identify cannabis, mouthwash, or anything else as a “cure” for the coronavirus. 

How the Novel Coronavirus Is Impacting Americans

So, how are Americans feeling right now? Well, unsurprisingly, people are stressed and uncertain. According to a recent Wall Street Journal/NBC Poll, 60 % of Americans believe the worst is yet to come.

As vacations are canceled and sports leagues suspend activity, those Americans have likely made a correct assessments of the coronavirus pandemic.

From the study:

A combined 53 percent say they’re either “very” or “somewhat” worried that someone in their immediate families might catch the coronavirus, while a combined 47 percent say they aren’t too worried or aren’t worried at all.

Stress that is related to contracting the novel coronavirus is not the only concern. Many Americans face financial difficulties, if not ruin, during this time. According to Deutsche Bank, 15 million Americans are at risk of losing their jobs as a result of the COVID-19 turmoil.
