COVID-19 in ASEAN Webinar: Managing anxiety in times of uncertainty

In addition to the fear and anxiety about a new frightening disease such as COVID-19, we are also facing the overwhelming stress of uncertainties towards what could happen. Social distancing measures, including working from home, could lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation. We also worry about our financial situation and the loss of support services that we rely on. How do we manage all this stress and anxiety?

In this coming webinar, we have two distinguished wellness advocates who will be sharing their stories and perspectives as well as useful exercises that we can adopt.
