The world appears to be in turmoil in this tumultuous time as the world struggles to cope with the covid19 pandemic. Fear, anxiety, confusion, and despair are the terrifying monsters lurking above all of us, trying to kill them.
Despite the demons’ threatening presence, there appears to be a sense of optimism in the population. This ray of sunshine is visible through a joyful attitude shared by all of us.
Turning COVID Into an Opportunity
The anxiety that came with the COVID 19 lockdown affected many people emotionally. This led to major changes in our daily lives and unexpected negative consequences. But, we can turn this situation into an opportunity. How?
First of all, this lockdown provides a unique opportunity for families to enjoy quality time with each other. All family members can take part in more imaginative activities such as baking, cooking, gardening, and sketching since everyone is at home. Parents take time to play and play with their youngsters and participate in daily activities that help strengthen relationships between families.
Second, the lockdown lets people have more time, which they might employ their creativity to take care of themselves or learn new skills or hobbies. The stress of worrying, overthinking, and losing hope are signs of not utilizing time efficiently. As a result, people can balance sleep, exercise, leisure, online socializing, and relaxation.
Thirdly, confinement offers a great chance to rekindle your interest and learn new skills. As the threat of getting the pandemic could be more deadly than being afflicted by the virus itself, we must make ourselves aware of how to handle anxieties and stigma. As a result, we must be familiar with various stress reactions.
Fourth, the lockdown can be a chance to adopt a healthy lifestyle. We can alter our ways of life into one that is more healthful. For example, we can grow vegetables with free space in our homes. Because we cannot leave our house, we can consume fresh fruits and vegetables instead of the packaged stuff. This means it’s time to focus our efforts on things that will enhance our health and total psychosocial well-being.
Fifth, because information and knowledge are power, the lockdown is a good opportunity to sit down and write. Each day, devote at least 30 minutes to reading. You already have a variety of products to ease the boredom you experience in such a small amount of duration.
In the end, this type of adversity allows the development of resiliency. There’s been a lot together. It started with massive earthquakes that caused havoc to our citizens’ lives and livelihoods. It then escalated towards African swine disease (ASF). This pandemic virus is followed by landslides, torrential rains, and earthquakes. It’s a Pandemic. COVID 19 isn’t over, but the quake is back to terrorize us!
It’s good to know that people have realized this and are now getting their news from various reliable sources. This is why newspapers are closing down, and people are turning to stream to “cut off the line” to watch what they want to listen to. What do you have to choose from now? Hospitalizations, infections, and deaths appear to be declining. Medical experts think that we will be back to normal by the fall, whatever that means. It would help if you did what you feel is right. Utilize common good sense. Find as much information as possible from a variety of sources.
