It’s easy to drink more than usual whilst social distancing. You may be feeling more anxious or worried than normal and drinking more to help with this. But, alcohol can actually make feelings of anxiety and worry worse. It can reduce the quality of your sleep and have a bad impact on your mental and physical health.
