Simple Ways of Helping Your Family Navigate Anxiety Amidst COVID-19
Anxiety can exist both in our heads and in our bodies.

It’s helpful to pause and pay attention to our thoughts to determine whether or not they are something worth listening to. Of course, there are plenty of things worthy of worry right now, but if you’re noticing yourself worrying about things you cannot control, or always assuming the worst, here are some basic practices that may offer help.
