At the early days of the lock down, I felt very anxious but also secure.
Anxious because we’re living a freaking pandemic.
Secure because I had (still do) food, shelter and my family and loved ones were good.
What I did to deal with this anxiety was to do a little list of things I could do and things I had control over:
Stay at home, even though I had just moved to another city and the beach is 10 min away from where I lived
Not go into panic mode and panic-buy toilet paper. Instead, smile while at the supermarket and be calm and kind
Help out the elder neighbours (do their shopping for them)
Call my grandparents/family/friends… We’re all going through the same thing!
