Uncertainty surrounding Coronavirus and its effects can lead to an indulgence of negative thinking, says Dr. Suhayl Nasr, a psychiatrist at Beacon Medical Group Behavioral Health South Bend.

Taking deep breaths and getting exercise can help ground you and help you escape from negative feelings, Nasr says. Calling friends, eating healthy and limiting the amount of time you watch news about COVID-19 are all healthy options to improve your mood amid uncertain times.
