We’ve all heard the expression “stir crazy,” and a lot of people are living it right now amid the restrictions that come along with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at the University of Alabama, Dr. Thaddeus Ulzen, said there are things people can do to put some normal back into their days.

“People have to try as much as possible in those situations to normalize their days, to have a routine for things they are going to do during the daytime so that they can have some predictability in the isolation,” Ulzen said.

Ulzen said making sure you are getting your information from reputable sources is important to keep panic at bay.
