It's not just you: Times are tough. The daily developments surrounding the coronavirus epidemic have us all feeling apprehensive, anxious and stressed at times, even as the vaccines open up America. The good news: There are simple things you can do to feel better fast. First, turn off the TV news. Next, read this list of experts' advice on how to get through a difficult day. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Symptoms Everyone Needs to Know About During This Pandemic. 1 Take a Breath An incredibly effective anti-anxiety tool is your own breath. Practice deep breathing: Breathe in for a count of four, then out for a count of four. You'll find yourself relaxing almost immediately. 2 Take a Break Distract yourself from a stressful day by taking a ten-minute break to do something relaxing, like stretching, meditating or going for a walk. 3 Keep Things in Perspective Remember that this tough day is only one of many—and there will be easier ones to come. 4 Realize You're Not the Only Person Who Feels This Way When you're stressed or anxious, you may feel totally alone. Remember that you're not. 5 Keep to Your Routine "Maintain as normal a routine as you possibly can," says Steven Rosenberg, Ph.D., a psychotherapist and behavioral specialist in Philadelphia. "It's easier to cope with whatever is going on. But you have to be realistic. When you're under stress, it can make things harder to do. Be patient with yourself, allow plenty of time to get things done, but a schedule is important." 6 Escape "Escape a little bit, if you can, through nice music or meditation," says Rosenberg. "Learning how to clear your mind can really help you get through a stressful period of time, whether it's this pandemic or a difficult time in your life." 7 Realize That This Too Will Pass "Everybody is stressed out, life is changing, but this will pass at some point in the future, and life will get back to normal," says Rosenberg. 8 Connect With Others Take some time to socialize with friends and family. Isolation only worsens stress and anxiety. 9 Get Some Exercise Exercise lowers stress hormones in the body and helps release endorphins, chemicals that naturally improve your mood. Even a quick walk around the block can help. 10 Try Mindfulness "At times, tough days can blast your mind to the past or catapult you into the future—pick your poison," says Jacob Kountz, a marriage and family therapist in Bakersfield, California. "Mindfulness is a technique that attempts to put the brakes on that process to slow things down. This can be achieved by taking a few minutes of your day to notice what's going on in the present so you don't have to time travel anymore."Start in a quiet place. "Begin to focus on what's going on within your body: your heartbeat, how warm you might be, and even the feeling of your fingers rubbing together," says Kountz. "Also, you'll notice thoughts roaming in your mind at the same time. Notice the thoughts and allow them to come in and out of your mind without judgment." 11 Try Relaxation Apps "I highly recommend the Calm app for daily meditation, excellent talks on self-development and sleep stories to help manage symptoms and get through difficult moments," says Haley Neidich, LCSW, a Florida-based therapist.RELATED: The #1 Cause of Diabetes, According to Science 12 Put Your Thoughts on Trial "Tough days can get heavier if our thoughts are tilted toward negative emotions," says Kountz. "Sometimes these negative emotions develop from thoughts that are considered unhelpful or irrational. A good rule of thumb when dealing with pesky automatic negative thoughts is putting them on trial."He explains: "Grab a piece of paper and make two columns. Begin writing out each negative thought in the left column. Let's say the first thought is, 'I'll never get to see my friends again because of this coronavirus." Now, move to the second column and challenge the thought by placing it on trial. Ask yourself, 'Is it really true that I'll never see them again? Or will we just be separate for the time being?' With enough practice, challenging certain thoughts may help you get through tougher days." 13 Try Positive Self-Talk "You want to stay as positive as you possibly can in times of stress," says Rosenberg. "Look at positive self-talk daily. An affirmation that I do every single day is, 'I am thankful, grateful and appreciative for all that I am.' And that's everything that makes me up—my friends, my family, my loved ones, my pets, everything that is part of me." 14 Tune Out the Negative If you're anxious about something that's going on in the news, switch off TV news channels and don't spend the day on news sites. Stay informed by checking in briefly a few times a day. 15 Stay in the Moment "When you're in the moment, you're not dwelling on any negativity of the past, and you aren't anticipating any negativity of the future," says Rosenberg. "You are in the moment, and in the moment, you have control over what you are doing now." 16 Eat Well "Take some time, even if minimally, to enjoy a hearty breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner," says Matt Glowiak, Ph.D., LCPC, a therapist and professor in New York City. "Homemade meals are generally not only healthier but also elevate happy neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin."RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Cancer Risk, Experts Say 17 Laugh Put on a favorite comedy show or watch YouTube videos. Laughter decreases stress and increases endorphins, those feel-good hormones that activate the body's opioid receptors, which decrease discomfort. 18 Try Visualization Techniques These can help with relaxation and to put you in a positive mindset. For example: Close your eyes, take three to five deep breaths, and imagine your body filling with white light. 19 Create a Playlist Music can help ease you out of stressful moments. Turn to your favorite playlist on Spotify or channel on Pandora.RELATED: 9 Everyday Habits That Might Lead to Dementia, Say Experts 20 Do Extra Self-Care "Our lives are overstressed anyway, so in a time of crisis, we need to double down," says life coach Andrea Travillian. "For me, this looks like activities sprinkled throughout the day. So I will take a meditation break, a short walk, or a bath. Anytime I am feeling fear, I step away." 21 Take a News Fast "If you feel a chunk of your stress is coming from what you're consuming on news and social media sites, take 24 to 48 hours—or even a few days—for a news and social media fast," says life coach Stacy Caprio. "You can take this time to take extra care of yourself physically and mentally, and to recharge from the news barrage you were likely in before."RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 22 Realize You'll Grow "Say to yourself, 'This is a moment in time, and what can I learn from this?'" says Lynn Berger, a licensed mental health counselor and career coach in New York City. 23 Externalize Your Thoughts "Sometimes, tough days are filled with thoughts that don't help out and only hinder us," says Kountz. "Unhelpful thoughts can look something like, 'I'm not strong enough to handle this.' Take the thought and now add some space to it. This can look like replacing the original thought of 'I'm not strong enough to handle this,' with 'I'm having the thought of not being strong enough to handle this.' This adds some space between you and the belief and make it less personal." 24 Get Good Sleep "Another great way to get through those extra tough days is to try and improve your overall sleep schedule," says physician Anna Cabeca, DO. "Do so by making a point to get at least seven hours of sleep a night."RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers. 25 Accept What's Possible During periods of crisis—like the coronavirus pandemic—things can seem out of our control. But that doesn't mean we're powerless. "Here's what I've noticed when it comes to what seems to still be in our control: how much news you watch, your perspective and attitude toward the present, how you'll practice what the CDC suggests, the way you can cope with tough days, practicing things at home that are meaningful and the list can go on—if you allow it," says Kountz. "Days can become easier once we're able to place our focus on what we can control rather than what we cannot.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that prisoners who were convicted by non-unanimous juries before the high court barred the practice a year ago don't need to be retried. The justices ruled 6-3 along conservative-liberal lines that prisoners whose cases had concluded before the justices' 2020 ruling shouldn't benefit from it.

Arthritis is a disorder of joints where there is either degeneration or inflammatory changes in the joints, Abhijeet Danve MD FACP, Yale Medicine rheumatologist and assistant professor of medicine, Yale School of Medicine, explains to Eat This, Not That! There are various types of arthritis, explains Dr. Danve. Osteoarthritis is the most common type, and results from degeneration in the cartilage lining the bones forming the joints. The next most common type of arthritis is gout which affects 9 million US adults.He explains that when the inflammation is responsible for the arthritis, the causes can include:Infections like Lyme disease, Hepatitis C, Parvovirus, Chikungunya etc.Crystal induced arthritis like gout and pseudo-gout (also called CPPD arthritis) Autoimmune diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Axial Spondyloarthritis, Lupus and other connective tissue diseases etc. In addition, there are several rare diseases that can cause arthritis. 2 What Happens If You Have It? Osteoarthritis as well as other types of arthritis can cause joint pains, stiffness and swelling, Dr. Danve explains. Gout typically causes flare ups of acute severe pain, swelling and redness of joints and patients can feel normal between two flares. "In the long run, arthritis can lead to chronic symptoms including difficulty in using the extremities, deformities and disability," he reveals. RELATED: 9 Everyday Habits That Might Lead to Dementia, Say Experts 3 How Do I Know I Have It? Patients can have various symptoms depending on the type of arthritis, which can include joint pain, swelling, stiffness, redness and warmth. "Some types of arthritis are also associated with problems in other organs including skin, eyes, intestines, lungs and kidneys," explains Dr. Danve. Some patients with systemic autoimmune arthritis can also have fever, fatigue and malaise. "A rheumatologist will carefully evaluate the pattern of joint pains, examination findings, do x-rays and lab tests to arrive at the diagnosis," he says. 4 Here Are the Top Contributing Factors For osteoarthritis, the risk factors include old age, obesity, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, previous injury and joint hypermobility.For gout, elevated serum uric acid is the main risk factor. "About 16% of the US population have elevated uric acid levels and some of these patients develop gout," Dr. Danve states. For autoimmune arthritis, genetic and environmental factors play an important role, but exact reasons are unclear.RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 5 What Is the #1 Cause While arthritis can impact people of all ages, it commonly occurs when someone is between the ages of 40 and 50, making age the biggest risk factor. RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers. 6 How to Prevent It While some of the risk factors for arthritis are not controllable, Dr. Danve notes that there are some things you can do to decrease your chances of getting it. "For osteoarthritis, loss of weight, non-weight bearing aerobic exercises, avoidance of smoking can be helpful," he says. "For gout, lifestyle modifications like reducing intake of excessive alcohol, red meat, seafood etc and loss of weight can be helpful. Stress management can help in reducing the flares of various types of arthritis." 7 What to Do If You Notice Symptoms If you think you may have arthritis, the best thing to do is seek medical attention. "In case of persistent joint pains, you should consult your primary doctor who will evaluate you and determine if you need to see a rheumatologist," suggests Dr. Danve. "Osteoarthritis can be managed by primary doctor or orthopedic surgeons, but for inflammatory arthritis, it is recommended that patients see a rheumatologist for diagnosis and long-term management."

The head of the World Health Organization called on manufacturers to make COVID-19 vaccine doses available to the COVAX vaccine-sharing facility earlier than planned due to a supply shortfall left by Indian export disruptions. COVAX, which supplies doses to poorer countries, relies heavily on India's Serum Institute's exports of the AstraZeneca jab but many of these are instead being used by the country as it battles a massive second wave of infections. The head of UNICEF on Monday asked G7 countries to donate supplies as an emergency measure to make up the shortfall estimated at 140 million doses by end-May.
