Behaviours to prevent anxiety and depression during the pandemic

However, according to a major survey carried out by the Psychiatry and Psychology Department at Hospital Clínic, there are certain behaviours that can protect our psychological well-being. Through the responses of more than 5,000 respondents, it has been seen that behaviours such as following a balanced diet and not reading news about COVID-19 too often serve to reduce symptoms of anxiety.
