10 Ways to Ease Your Coronavirus Anxiety [nytimes.com]

By Simran Sethi, The New York Times, March 18, 2020 “Life is one thing after another,” Dr. Harriet Lerner, a psychologist and author, said. “And just because the universe has already sent us one big stress, it doesn’t mean we won’t be hit with others.” Dr. Lerner has spent much of her career researching the effects of anxiety and fear on individuals, families and larger systems.

Mai Le ·
By Shawn Ginwright, April 14, 2020 The reports of racial disparities among COVID-19 victims should not surprise us. African Americans and Latinos have typically experienced disproportionate exposure to a range of health issues. For example, African Americans are twice as likely to die of heart disease as their white counterparts. Consider that Latinos are 50% more likely than whites to die of diabetes or liver disease.

How You and Your Kids Can De-Stress During Coronavirus [pbs.org]

By Deborah Farmer Kris, Public Broadcasting Service, March 13, 2020 A few weeks ago, my eight-year-old daughter made a glitter jar for my students: “Tell them that when their brain has a glitter storm, they can shake this up and take deep breaths as the glitter falls.” We could all use some help settling our glitter right now.

Costco is out of toilet paper and CVS is out of cough syrup. Your group fitness class and your favorite restaurant are closed.

This is not a nightmare. This is real life in 2020 thanks to COVID-19, aka the coronavirus.
