Fear of Disease

It’s extremely important to stay up to date with the current information about what’s happening around especially in the current situation. But it is best practice is to know only what is required and not stuff the brain with unnecessary or false information. It is always best to follow the advised safety precautions and participate only in what’s necessary to slow the spread of disease.

It’s best to stick to the trusted sources of information in this regard like the CDC, the World Health Organization, and the local public health authorities. Constant monitoring of news and social media feeds can quickly turn compulsive and counterproductive—fueling anxiety rather than easing it. The limit is different for everyone, so pay attention to how you’re feeling and adjust accordingly.
