10 Ways to survive lockdown

Media Coverage

At this time it is possible to watch 24 hours of coverage and stories about Coronavirus being posted to your newsfeed or online. Media outlets have a lot of time to fill, so you will find they focus on stories that emphasise the stress, strain and difficulties as it is sensational stories that make headlines.

If you are watching a lot of this it can have a negative impact on your mood and can easily lead to you feeling helpless.

Reduce the amount you are reading and watching about Coronavirus, maybe check in with the news just once a day. Read articles from a reputable source. The BBC news online can be an accessible place to get a responsibly clear picture of what is happening. Be careful of what appears on your newsfeeds and avoid getting into a cycle of doomscrolling.
