How do you manage to cope with stress during this virus crisis? My brother is in self isolation, I’m bringing him shopping and cheering him up but when I’m coming back home I feel so scared and worried.

As someone who had Covid a month prior, I can only tell you that the fear for your loved ones never really goes away. The only thing that might help is to check on them as often as possible, to reassure both yourself that they are fine, and them, that someone cares for them. Other then that, standard things avoid contact amd crowded places, wash hands, masks, all of it reduces stress aside from keeping you and the people around you healthy.

I'd say to find a distraction. Your brother seems to be fine despite being self-isolated and your sibling love is what is allowing you to worry too much. You should try and focus on yourself instead of putting all your energy into helping your brother. I'm sure ethat he can cope without too much assistance.

I say to myself that everyone is still fine. You can start a book and talk about what happens each day during this pandemic. I, personally like making doodles on my school work.

Self care is imperative. Take the time to sit, breath, reflect, move, & feel good in your body. Ask for peace of mind, clarity, & remember to be grateful for all the good things in your life. Keep your mind positive and font dwell in negativity.

I personally have been using self improvement and distractions as a way to try to take my mind off of the stresses, watching TV or a movie, playing video games, listening to music, anything along those lines keeps my mind busy for the time being. The same goes for working out and taking care of myself, whenever I’m in that state it feels stress-free and freeing because I’m focused on a goal unrelated to any of my stresses. One massive thing that only tends to exacerbate the stresses of day to day life and in specific the virus crisis like you mentioned, is social media, avoiding or even cutting it out of your life for a time can be extremely beneficial.

I hope this helped, stay strong man, it will get better. Don’t be afraid to reach out to friends and family about this too. I’m here for you if you need to message me, @owen.cant.ollie on Instagram. Good luck.

I'm still in school, so I don't have much to do, besides studying and taking naps. But sometimes it's nice to go on a short walk, luckily we have a big garden, I go there often. Sometimes I make some tea and just watch the outside, to relax a bit. If you have a pet that helps a lot with stress. Maybe late at night just snuggle with your furry friend, or watch something you like. Horror films are not recommended.
Baking helps me to relax, maybe it will help your brother too.

Will i try look on the brighter side of this virus like my get to spend time with my family some family members through. And this pandemic actually helped me it made me think how good i have it and i figure out that i like writing. I lost family members due to covid if my brother had covid i would be scared too but I would try relax maybe listen to your favourite music and read a book. Watch your favourite movie but if you can’t relax and you need to cry its fine too, crying helps reduce stress. I hope your brother gets better💗

Maybe, try reassuring him that you will be careful not to get in contact with anyone or anything that could lead to Covid, so using gel and double mask maybe. Surely you could cheer him up even just by having a walk on a sunny day or going out on bikes!
