The coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed the world and all of its inhabitants immensely. When this first began, many of us had hopes of a speedy turnaround. Now three months into lockdown, many of us still feel limited and trapped because of it. It seems to be unending, and it has been an emotionally, physically, and mentally draining experience. We have had a very short time to come to terms with drastic and unprecedented changes.
Even as our world begins to open up again, there is a completely different sense of “normal.” We will have to adjust to ways in which we keep each other safe. We will be required to continue to keep safe distances from others and cover our faces, and there are constantly evolving rules for getting tested for the virus. With so much uncertainty, what can you do to help yourself manage through these new phases of this long-term crisis?
