Put yourself at ease by protecting those you love
06 October 2020
Studies have confirmed what we think we know but which we wished deep inside isn’t true—that the novel coronavirus outbreak is taking a heavy toll on the mental health of Filipinos.
One of the studies conducted during the early stages of the outbreak zeroed in on the panic response of people to the COVID-19 pandemic. Part of the findings of the study is that people from all walks of life have experienced moderate illness anxiety, regardless of their occupation or location.
The threat brought about by the pandemic has caused Filipino students, employees, and non-working individuals to feel unwell even if they’re not sick.
Although the situation created awareness about the role of wellness plans in having a strong immune system, it cannot be denied that feelings of fear, shock, sadness, and even paranoia also pervade for many people. You’re probably worried about your and your loved ones’ health, or the possibility of a financial crisis if and when you lose your livelihood.
Other statistics and findings show a similar trend:
One way or another, the scenarios relating to COVID-19 can add to your worries. This is especially true when you think about not having enough control over what’s happening or how it can impact your life.
Yet, having a healthy dose of optimism is essential now, more than ever, to help pull you through during these tough times. The key is in paying attention to things that can contribute to a positive state of mind, allowing you to overcome difficulties and live a happy life.
Be sure to include self-care in your daily routine using a checklist, just like what’s in this infographic.
Sleep problems are one of the effects of living through a pandemic, but you can try several techniques to help you sleep more or better. These include creating and sticking to a sleep schedule, minimizing nap times, making your room sleep-friendly, and so on.
As much as possible, you should aim for a good night’s sleep, but if you feel that it’s only adding to your worries, staying in bed to simply rest is still a worthy effort.
News of large-scale infections and deaths, mass lockdowns, and other negative events can make you feel overwhelmed. Pay attention to the most important facts about COVID-19, such as your risk levels, preventive measures, and health tips, to avoid saturating yourself and become well-informed instead.
