Even for people without specific health concerns, the idea of coming out of quarantine may be causing fear, stress, and anxiety. As hard as it was to adjust at the outset of quarantine, it will also take time to adjust to a return to daily life.
While the beginning of quarantine was scary and uncertain, there was a sense that we were all in it together. Coming out of quarantine is a different story, however, because every geographic region, employer, school, and person has a different outlook on what is safe and what isn’t and a different plan to address risk reduction.
It will take time to find our way back and reconnect with life. Having a plan for how to do this, while protecting your emotional and physical health, helps to reduce stress and anxiety.
