Top two things on everyone’s minds are:
“Is it coming to my neighborhood”?
“Am I at risk”?
National anxiety is a shared stress at the moment. However, the more you stress, the more you become exposed to viruses.
This is only because stress can easily dampen your immune system. Outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is stressful for humanity on the planet.
“Fear and anxiety over a disease is overwhelming and can lead to strong emotions amongst adults and children,” says Dr. Maroof Siddiqui, a G-Certified Homeopathic Doctor and Expert.
Dr. Maroof’s clinic – Advanced Homeopathy – brings you, five essential steps to push back anxiety.

2. Unplug & Learn to be in the moment
Obsessing over news has the unintended effect of driving up your fear. The coronavirus outbreak has given us opportunity to re-learn how to live in the present times – How to live now! News alerts do not change your risk of getting coronavirus. Staying at home does.
