how to manage your anxiety during the Corona virus Outbreak

It’s borderline impossible to do anything right now without hearing the word Corona virus. The developing panic is real, especially when the only news being disseminated seems to be Corona virus news. And for people who already struggle with anxiety disorders, the daily reminders and updates about Corona virus sweeping the globe is only adding insult to injury.

How to manage your anxiety:

• Assess your own personal risk for contracting the Corona virus.

You can take a proactive role in your health (and anxiety levels) by figuring out your own personal risk for developing the Corona virus.

• Try to limit your Corona virus news consumption

You should at least be aware that Corona virus is currently an issue, and know where it's showing up in relation to you. However, there is such a thing as too much news, and constantly reading Corona virus update stories isn't going to help your anxiety levels.

• Recognize that your anxiety is normal, but resist inflaming it.

• Follow the correct preventive methods to protect yourself against the Corona virus.

• Remind yourself that you're doing the best you can in this situation.


Fun at Home!

• Complete a puzzle: The more pieces the better! Feeling extra saucy?

Take on a Rubik's Cube. More of a word person? Crossword puzzle!

• Start a journal or blog. Sure, it can be about the Corona virus,

but it could also be about a specific interest from chess to cheese.

• Watch all the really long movies you’ve avoided until now.

• Update or write your will and organize your affairs.

Yes, it sounds melodramatic and morbid but let’s face it: This is a task many of us avoid because we never have the time. Now we do.

• Write actual letters to family and friends. After that?

Write thank-you notes to service people who you remember went out of their way for you.

• Make lists of all the museums, sporting events and concerts you want to visit when they finally reopen.

• Make a list of things for which you are grateful.

• Consider donating money to food banks to help families struggling to get meals.

As concerts are postponed, sporting events are cancelled, schools are closed and tourist hot spots are shut down, experts recommend that even those who show no sign of illness stay home during this time of global pandemic.

Isolation is an opportunity for us to reflect, be grateful for what we have and recognize the value of friend and family.


Recipe of the month Chocolate Tart

Fact: Dark chocolate stimulates the production of endorphins, the chemicals in the brain that create feelings of pleasure. Dark chocolate also contains serotonin, an antidepressant that can elevate your mood.


Oreo Crust: 24 Oreo cookies 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted Ganache Filling: 1 cup coarsely chopped bittersweet chocolate

1 cup coarsely chopped milk chocolate 1 cup heavy cream 1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces


To make the crust:

Pulse Oreo cookies, with filling, in a food processor until finely ground. Transfer crumbs to a medium bowl, add melted butter, and mix until combined and moistened. Press the mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of a 23cm tart pan.

Place it in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up. Bake the crust in a 180C preheated oven for 5-6 minutes, then let it cool completely on a wire rack before adding the filling.

To make the filling:

In a medium heatproof bowl, place chopped bittersweet and milk chocolate. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the heavy cream and butter to a low boil.

Remove from the heat and pour mixture over the chocolate.

Using a rubber spatula, stir mixture until melted and smooth. Pour mixture over chilled Oreo crust and refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours or overnight.
