“The main thing is to stop “feeding” your stress,” advises neuropsychologist, candidate of psychological sciences Svetlana Shishkova. – Protect yourself from negative information as much as possible. No need to constantly update the news feed, communicate with people who sow panic. Double physical activity: bodily tension displaces mental tension. Studies show that an hour of walking in nature relieves fear and stress, lowers blood pressure, lowers cortisol levels, and can even prevent mental disorders (although for this you need to walk daily).
Try to stick to the daily routine and do not give up the usual rituals – this will create a feeling of stability.
If your fear has a real basis, objectively assess your resources. Think about how you can “stay afloat” if events develop according to the most negative scenario, and how to minimize possible losses. Knowing your reserves will give you confidence.
