MANAGING STRESS DURING COVID-19
Are you having difficulty managing stress during Covid-19? If so, the state of Utah is providing free help to those who need it. Below you will find free numbers you can call. The state of Utah has crisis lines to help you during this difficult time.
FREE CRISIS AND HOTLINE TO YOU MANAGE STRESS
Below you will find a crisis line, a hotline, and a Statewide Crisis Line. These numbers have resources and counseling to help you manage your stress level during Covid-19. Many people have lost their jobs, their income, their health, or even loved-ones.
You may feel like you are alone, but you are not. Children have been out of school, requiring parents to stay home or find alternative childcare. Some people don’t have family to care for their children and some do not have money to afford childcare. Call the crisis line, perhaps they can help.
If you have lost a loved one to Covid-19 and are struggling with depression, contact the crisis line. You can also call or visit UtahStrong@Utah.gov for help if you are having financial difficulties. Many people are waiting for Social Security Disability during this time.
Fortunately, the SSA continues to hold disability hearings over the phone. This has made it so there is not a backlog of cases. However, the wait is still long.
If you need help getting disability benefits, contact our office. We are here for you and we will answer your questions for free.
MANAGING STRESS DURING COVID-19 ON YOUR OWN
There are things you can do on your own to manage stress during Covid-19. Some of these activities are simple things you can do on your own. Mostly, they will help you take your mind off of the pandemic.
It may seem logical or like common-sense, but doing any activity to calm your mind will help your stress level. Take time away from work or family, just for yourself, even if it is for a few minutes. Try deep breathing. Meditate. Watch the sunset. Take a walk.
Play an instrument. Call a friend. Read a book, instead of watching TV. Listen to music that you love.
If these activities do not help, then seek professional help. We are all struggling during this time, but do not feel bad if you need more help than others.
Use the resources that are provided in this post to help you and your family during Covid-19.
Hopefully, you will be able to obtain the vaccine and these worries will be in the past. Until then, hang in there. Don’t give up.
