Stress

The Coronavirus outbreak may be stressful and have you feeling anxious. Taking care of yourself can help you cope with stress. Everyone reacts differently to uncertain situations. Stress during an outbreak may include:

  • Fear and worry about your health.
  • Changes in your sleeping or eating patterns.
  • Difficulty sleeping or concentrating.

Things You Can Do to Support Yourself

  • Take breaks from watching, reading or listening to news stories, including  social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be unsettling.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch or meditate.
  • Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise and get plenty of sleep.
  • Make time to unwind. Try to do activities that bring you joy.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
  • Call your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row.

Accessibility Statement:

Disability Network Northern Michigan is committed to making its website accessible to the widest possible audience. This website has been developed to comply under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which was enacted to eliminate barriers to information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities and to encourage the development of new technologies to help achieve these goals. This law requires that all individuals with disabilities have access to information and data comparable to that which is available to individuals without disabilities.

DisabilityNetwork.org is regularly monitored to ensure that it meets the requirements of Section 508, along with the best practices outlined by the W3C’s (World Wide Web Consortium’s) Web Accessibility Initiative, specifically WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) Level A Compliance. We are diligently working to reach and maintain a higher standard of accessibility, which is Level AA Compliance of W3C’s WCAG standards. Because technology changes rapidly, this is an ongoing process.

Let us know which page or item you need help with and we will provide a solution that works for you within a reasonable period of time.
