“With the amount of uncertainty we are experiencing, it can increase our stress response resulting in more cortisol and adrenaline which suppresses our immune system. But you can do something about it, mindfulness is an excellent practice to reduce stress. It allows you to stop jumping from one thought to the next, and to reduce rumination on negative thoughts. It is a skill that helps us notice thoughts, emotions and physical reactivity, allowing us to have a nonjudgmental curious awareness about a situation rather than shut down or over-react. We see things more clearly and can respond in an effective way.
