As COVID-19 cases rise, panic and anxiety surrounding the global pandemic are spreading faster than the virus itself. Don’t let yourself succumb to fear and follow these tips to help you relax and put things into perspective
Manage your media diet
Know the facts – but don’t overdo it, because there are many incorrect sources over the web. Find a credible source you can trust – such as https://www.mygov.in/ – and fact-check information you get from news feeds, social media or other people
Say NO to the blame game
In a crisis, people tend to adopt an accusatory attitude and become more skeptical and accuse people. If we can try to be more understanding in our approach, it can bring us all together to fight this
Discuss your worries
Don’t be a loner. It’s alright to share your concerns with others and it might help them too. Talk to people as it may help you calm your worries
Stay remotely connected
Social distancing and lockdown require us to stay indoors, but that doesn’t mean we have to isolate. Maintaining healthy relationships is important for our mental wellbeing, so stay in touch with friends and family remotely
Look after yourself
This pandemic demands from us to take care of others as well as be gentle with ourselves. While we can’t drive fear off completely, we can learn of ways to calm ourselves and find peace of mind. Start doing things that you like and it will help you deal with these tough times
Prevent fear and anxiety to become pandemics, too
Do not let this pandemic anxiety lead you into isolation or make impulsive decisions. Terrible things happen, but it is still possible to move forward with hope.
Covid-19 has had a negative effect not only on the economy but almost all the industries and households. Yes, there will be post Covid-19 effects but it is not something we cannot fight. With the right strategy and right state of mind, we can survive the effects and come out stronger.
