Corona virus - a disease for the body as well as the mind
Covid 19 has affected all of us tremendously. Not only are we seeing
numerous deaths being broadcasted all around the world it seems that
everything around us has come to a stop.
Some look on the positive side where they think this is a good time to
spend with their families or do all the activities they could not do before.
But for others who needed the outside world as a distraction from their own
thoughts and feelings might think differently. Before this pandemic it
seemed like everyone was caught in race. Just constantly running to meet
their goals and do what needs to be done.
But now all of us are forced to take a pause and think. To really take note
of our present surroundings and circumstances. Many of us may not have
been ready to do that. With social psychical interaction being kept to a
minimum it leaves us alone to ponder about ourselves and the people
Even in this age of technology where communication is at our fingertips it
can still get isolated.
There is so much emphasis on physical health nowadays that most of us
forget to focus on our mental states and what everlasting effects this
disease may have on us.
We are condemned to stay inside our homes or apartments that for some
have become prisons. This leaves us so much to think as well as overthink.
For the youth of today who's state of minds was already fragile they must
adjust to this as well.
For people away from their families. Having to lose their jobs.
Their loved ones. The world we know it is no longer there.
Instead, We are having to cope with a disease that we do not even know.
We will be told to look on the bright side which is a good thing. But
sometimes it’s not possible. When your mind is being pushed into negative
albeit realistic information, it will react accordingly.
So it’s alright to feel scared.
To feel as if nothing can happen. That time is being wasted. The world has
not ended. But merely has come to a pause. The world needed a break
and maybe there is some betterment in it after all.
Education and finding a job as well as meeting your loved ones has
become extremely hard. Putting all of these factors together its very much
possible to feel alone, stressed, angry, depressed etc. We have the space
to reflect on ourselves and depending on the individual it can be a good
thing. This much is obvious that several of us will be changed after this
So when checking on people or yourself, be sure to give their mental health
and strength attention as well!
