Train your nervous system like a pet.

Lina Perl, a clinical psychologist in New York City, said these new activities might make you feel a little anxious. But the more you do them, the less power they will have over you.

Try to stick it out until the anxiety starts to fade, she said. If the anxiety remains, don’t give up right away.

Instead, breathe slowly, ground yourself and tell yourself you’re safe, she said.


Wear a mask, get COVID-19 vaccine, stay at least 6 feet apart, avoid crowds, and wash your hands to protect against COVID-19.


It’s critical to keep taking precautions to prevent COVID-19. Use masks to slow the spread.
COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick. Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
We’re still learning how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19. After you’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should keep taking precautions in public places like wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces until we know more.
