Promoting Well-Being: Taming autumn anxiety- Dealing with autumn anxiety starts by identifying what your personal triggers are and making a plan to manage them before they start to feel overwhelming or out of control, says Mayra Mendez, a licensed psychotherapist, marriage and family therapist, and program coordinator of mental health services at Providence Saint John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, California. To help you figure out what’s causing your anxiety this fall, we asked our experts to share the most common triggers they see and how to manage them.
The beginning of a new school year: A new school year causes a lot of excitement but it also brings a lot of added responsibilities, particularly for parents, Mendez says. This is especially true in the middle of a pandemic. “Students and parents of students now have extra time commitments, expenses, and social stresses, all of which can be very anxiety-inducing,” she says. How to deal: Decide right now what is necessary and what is just nice and then use your limited resources based on those priorities, Mendez says. For instance, your child may want to do three after-school clubs along with honors classes but realistically it may be better for all of you to limit extracurriculars, especially if you are worried about safety and face-to-face interaction right now. (Here’s how to get kids to a back to school sleep schedule.)
Cold and flu season and coronavirus: Going into the season of coughs and sniffles is stressful most years but with the Covid-19 pandemic in full force, many people are experiencing an extreme amount of anxiety around getting sick this fall, Mendez says. If that’s you, you’re certainly not alone in your worries. To help you prepare, here’s a guide to cold and flu season. How to deal: “Self-care is so important, both for your mental health and to boost your immune system,” she says. This includes getting adequate sleep, exercising, and eating a healthy diet—check out these delicious fall superfoods—but don’t forget to add in some things just for fun, like taking a long bubble bath or getting a fancy latte.
