Covid 19-Anxiety

Given the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic  many of our patients have advised us that they have been feeling increasingly anxious.

Please have a look at the following diagram which shows the impact the news of the ongoing events can have on a person, and measures to counter them:

 

There are a number of helpful resources we would like you to consider. These popular meditation apps normally cost £50-£60/year for a subscription, but they’ve both released free content specifically to help those struggling with anxiety and stress at this time:

 

  • Calm is offering ‘soothing meditations’, a ‘calm masterclass’, ‘calm kids’ and mindfulness resources. They’re available via its website – see Calm’s free content.
  • Headspace has a collection called Weathering the Storm, which includes meditations, sleep and movement exercises. It’s available on the app (for iPhoneor Android), or you can access some of the content via the Headspace website.
