Strategies to cope with stress, anxiety and distress of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Watching the COVID-19 outbreak unfold around the world is likely to cause distress and anxiety for many people. In the face of worrying media reports, increasing diagnoses, financial stresses, and the many unknowns about this global pandemic, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed.
Mild feelings of worry and unease can quickly become anxiety. For those feeling isolated or suffering from worsening mental health, Brain Wellness Spa seeks to offer actionable anxiety management in Perth during these uncertain times.
Know the signs
Anxiety management starts with understanding what is going on in your own mind. Common signs of anxiety include:
- Changed sleep pattern
- Trouble falling asleep
- Fear for the health of loved ones
- Changed appetite
- Increased alcohol or tobacco use
- Feeling of panic or worry
Get the facts
Being bombarded every day by media reports, social media posts and worried conversations is sure to raise anxiety levels. Just like any serious issue, make sure your news is coming from reliable sources.
…to loved ones
We may be isolated in our own homes, but thanks to modern technology we can still check in on family and friends. If you’re worried about someone, give them a video call to speak face-to-face while practicing social distancing.

Our Perth anxiety management aims to help individuals break the cycle of anxiety with a 100% natural, drug-free approach. We focus on alternative mental health strategies you can use to empower your emotions when suffering from emotional distress.
And during these times of isolation we are available for phone consultations including an introductory session for just $79 (normally $220), so you can work towards easing the stress of anxiety whether you’re down the street or in a remote WA town.
From the news, from social media, from working at home, from messaging friends about the uncertain situation. Breaking the cycle of anxiety can help to empower your emotions by redirecting energy and calming a busy mind. Do something calming you enjoy such as yoga, meditation, cooking a nice meal, or reading a book.
Follow official health advice to maintain a clean environment and minimise your exposure risks. Wash your hands regularly, avoid touching your face, disinfect your phone and computer regularly, and stay home as much as possible.
Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. Anxiety management in Perth is one way our community will stay strong and united to weather the storm and emerge empowered from the pandemic.
