From this [https://thewirecutter.com/blog/coronavirus-self-care/ article]: "Acknowledging coronavirus-related unease—and allowing yourself to feel all the feelings that piggyback it—can go a long way in helping you cope over the short (and long) term. If turning inward for a bit sounds appealing, consider a meditation app: Wirecutter recommends Headspace and Calm. (The Breathing App is a free option.) As for professional help, online therapy services can be great resources for finding a licensed therapist to meet with via video appointments. Our favorite platform is Amwell."
