WITH the second Covid-19 wave having hit us bad, and the fear of a third one looming large, there is a visible paranoia in the air, with everyone trying to find ways and means of coping up with the trauma. A few experts talk about how to circumvent this stress of what the future holds.
It is crucial to alleviate your paranoia and anxiety by reminding yourself that around 98 per cent recover from Covid. For most people, it is similar to any other viral infection. The important thing is to take all the necessary precautions. However, social distancing and staying home bound is affecting a lot of people emotionally. We cannot change this reality, we can find ways to adapt to it. Think of ways in which you can make this gloomy phase productive and meaningful. Learn a new skill, pursue an old hobby or do things that you wanted to do but never had time for. Focus on taking care of y o u r b o d y through regular exercise, eating healthy and getting adequate sleep.
