MANILA – Ejay Falcon admitted he sometimes experiences anxiety attacks because of the current coronavirus pandemic and the franchise woes of ABS-CBN.

The actor said he just actively tries to divert his attention to cope with the situation.

“At some point oo, nakakaramdam ako ng anxiety, kasi medyo mapag-isip din akong tao, lalo na kapag nasa bahay ka lang, kasi wala kang ginagawa kaya ang dami mong oras mag-isip, di ba?” he said in an interview with PUSH.

Falcson said one of the things he does when he gets anxiety attacks is to work out.

“Yung anxiety naman ay may iba-ibang level po depende sa tao. Minsan kailangan mo lang mag-work out lagi, nakakatulong din 'yon para mapanatiling malusog hindi lang ang katawan natin, pati rin isipan natin. Need mo talagang gumawa ng paraan na maging positibo po, lalo pa nga na ang daming negativity ngayon sa mundo,” he said.

In the same interview, Falcon shared that although he was already able establish a daily routine during the lockdown, he said he will never get used to the fact that ABS-CBN has halted its broadcast operations on free TV.

“Nakapag-adjust na siguro dun sa daily routine na nasa bahay ka, ganyan, pero 'yung nakapag-adjust na nakasara 'yung ABS-CBN siyempre mahirap,” he said.

“Hindi ko naman yata makakasanayan 'yon, 'yung pagkawala ng TV network namin kasi hanapbuhay ko 'yun at ng marami pang mga Kapamilya stars. Siyempre iba pa din 'yung normal 'yung operations ng network, na tuloy ang tapings or guestings although masaya naman na kahit papaano, nakakabalik ang ilan via Kapamilya Channel,” he added.

When asked how he’s currently supporting his family considering all projects are on hold, he said: “Ginagamit ko muna 'yung naipon sa mga nakaraang projects ko. Tipid-tipid muna siyempre. Pero so far natutustusan ko pa naman kung ano mga pangangailangan nila.”

Falcon said he is also thinking of starting up an online business.

“Karamihan nga ngayon makikita mo sa social media, di ba? Kanya-kanya ng diskarte ng pwedeng pagkakitaan. Naisip ko nga ito na 'yung pagkakataon din para mas makapag-isip din ako ng business talaga,” he said.
