8 steps to relieve anxiety during the home quarantine related to COVID-19:



It is normal to feel sad, stressed, fear, or anger during the period of home quarantine. However, there are steps you can take to reduce it.

  1. Decrease the time you spend on news or on social media and seek information only from reliable sources (@mophleb, @@wholeb, @UNICEFLebanon).
  2. Set a daily routine that includes activities that you consider enjoyable and relaxing (such as reading, praying, meditation, "phone visits" to friends and family via video, cognitive exercises such as Sudoku or crosswords on the phone, and entertainment shows).
  3. Do breathing and relaxation exercises 2-3 times daily.
  4. Try to limit sitting for long periods of time by standing and walking around, every 30 minutes if possible.
  5. Try to do some physical activities if possible (example: walking 15-30 minutes at home daily).
  6. Maintain a healthy diet and proper sleep (with fixed bedtime).
  7. Avoid resorting to smoking, alcohol, or any other addictive substance to deal with stress because it does not help and is harmful on the long-term.
  8. Keep in touch with loved ones and friends through social media and share with them any feelings or thoughts that may cause you anxiety, fear, or sadness.



Breathing techniques:

Learn how to take a deeper breath by following these steps:

  • Assume a comfortable position. You can lie down on your back in bed or on a mat on the floor; or you can sit in a chair that has support for your shoulders, neck, and head.
  • Place one hand on your belly, just below your ribs, and the other on your chest.
  • Breathe in with your nose. When you breathe, feel your belly expanding and your hand moving outwards. Your chest should not move.
  • Exhale through your mouth as if you were whistling and feel your belly relaxing.
  • Complete 3 to 10 breaths. Take your time with every breath.
  • Notice how you feel at the end of the exercise. You can close your eyes while doing it. As you breathe, imagine your lungs filled with peace and serenity.
  • As you exhale, imagine the air coming out of your chest releasing all the stress and tension with it.
