There may be a new virus variant circulating but there is currently no evidence that it is any more harmful than the previous one. Regardless, the media and other opportunistic stakeholders, such as the pharmaceutical giants, will try to create more fear and panic which contribute to your chronic anxiety. This can undoubtedly weaken your immune system and make you more vulnerable to infections. Do not allow it to happen.
Develop your sense of agency, and remember that you are in control of your body and mind.
In related non-breaking news, exercise and proper nutrition remain the most effective and well proven solutions for boosting your immune system.
This has been an evidence-based emergency update. Thank you for using your head.
