True or False: Closely following the COVID-19 news can create anxiety?
True: If you’re feeling anxious from reading or listening to the constant coverage of COVID-19, chances are you’re consuming too much of it, too often. Consider selecting two to three reputable sources to gather your information from, and aim to read, listen to, or watch them just once or twice a day. You may want to select one national or international news source, for example, and one local news source. Sign up for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) COVID-19 newsletter to get a quick dose of trusted information. And, avoid reading the news before you go to bed, as this may interfere with your sleep.
