Fighting Stress


It’s never been easier to fall into a cycle of stress and anxiety. COVID-19 continues to disrupt all of our lives, so it’s easy to see why so many people are feeling on edge. Now, a new study finds that knowledge is perhaps our best asset in the fight against pandemic stress.

Researchers from North Carolina State University found that the more a person knows about COVID-19, the less pandemic-related stress they feel. Also, making post-pandemic plans is another effective way for older adults to feel more mellow.
