Stress and Anxiety

You can download some applications to help you manage your stress and anxiety which is a normal response to a changing environment. The problem is it persists or continues long enough to interrupt your normal activities. During this time it is important to stay connected to others.  Keep yourself informed, but you do not need to monitor the news every waking moment.
