Managing Your Internal Barometer During the Coronavirus Outbreak

The coronavirus outbreak is accompanied by a more insidious threat: a global flare of anxiety and worry that is wreaking havoc on our inner well-being. How can we manage our internal barometer in these trying times?

The onslaught of bad news in the media naturally arouses an acute sense of fear. This emotion is powerful and also very useful, since it protects us from immediate dangers and threats. Fear originates in the brain’s limbic system—the center of our emotional behavior—and triggers lightning-fast emotional and physical reactions. Physical manifestations—racing heartbeat, sweaty palms, tension in various parts of the body—arise almost instantaneously when a threat is detected. But fear can also push us towards negative or impulsive thoughts and actions. An effective way of calming ourselves in such situations is to implement a few techniques that will move us from reaction to response.
