Considering the current global situation, we all have experienced a resurgence in our fears, nervousness, depression, and all the other feelings of anxiety. Relationships are on test, minds are blank, hearts are terrified, inner voices are mute, confidences are shattered, and our eyes are closed and hands joined and praying for the end of this global crisis. The feelings of anxiety are through the roof and these feelings can get triggered by even the smallest of a thing, nobody’s fault! All those relationships and activities that used to invigorate us are on hold, making us more and more anxious, day in, and day out.
So, I thought I should put together some tips that can help people heal anxiety during the quarantine!
Healing anxiety during the quarantine
Let’s give it a try!
Realize the importance of this time!
No one of us has chosen to stay in quarantine or at home, the current global condition has forced all of us to do that. Remember, every situation in life and every single day has something new to teach you, so it is vital to realize the importance of this time and understand what it is trying to teach you.
Yes, you may not be able to spend time with your friends and relatives, but it is possible to spend some time with your own thoughts and feelings! Ah, yes, somewhere, we all have missed connecting with our own selves; the ‘me’ time with our own feelings and thoughts, and it’s possible during the quarantine.
Spending time with your loved ones
Eight-hours-a-day desk job, your business, when did you find time for your loved ones when you were out, doing all these activities, in most cases- rarely.
So, now, when you are working from home or staying home due to the obvious reasons, utilize this time to the fullest by spending time with your spouse, your children, your parents, and make the most out of every second you spend with your loved ones. Remember, once things are stable, you are surely going to miss this time!
Yes, we all have complaints with this situation, we all are having something bitter to speak out about coronavirus crisis and other issues in life that we are facing, But, it is important to keep in mind that complaining is not going to resolved the issues, in fact complaining about surely heighten anxiety. So, it is very important to stop complaining and finding solutions!
Take time to recognize all the good things in your life
If the increasing number of coronavirus patients and deaths and all the bad highlights on the news channels are making you feel anxious 9which surely is), turn off your TV! When you try to find peace, it doesn’t make you a bad citizen or anti-social, it’s better to locate and cherish all the good things that life has to offer, every single thing that you are blessed with. When you will cherish your blessings, you will realize that it is still possible to find peace and enjoy life.
Work on improving yourself
It can your fitness, dancing, any game you like, and everything in between. Find ways to improve yourself, you’ll surely lose anything if you involve in some activities that make you a better person, things that enhance your skill-sets, and things that make you feel good! You will be more and more interested to do the very first thing that struck in your mind after reading the first sentence. Yes, you got what you can improve and what you want to achieve, it’s a bit psychological but doable.
So, you never know how long you need to be in quarantine and when the crisis is going to leave us, it’s better not to focus on bad and negative feelings, try doing these things, and make quarantine an enjoyable time.
