A new way of life has been ushered in by the Covid-19 Pandemic. While we try to break old habits, new ones are being practiced, whether it is wearing masks, keeping social distance, being cautious when in crowded places, or even handling a parcel delivered to our doorstep. Many of us are hoping that the situation will return to pre-pandemic levels, but the majority of us have been affected in some manner by the epidemic’s ramifications. Because of this, it is not an exaggeration to claim that the world will be a different place when the epidemic has ended.
In the case of the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr. Jyoti Kapoor, a psychiatrist, believes that the need for a high level of alertness and the necessary precautionary behavior required to protect us from the disease is a significant issue, which she believes has been the need for a high level of alertness and the necessary precautionary behavior required to protect us from the disease.
How the pandemic induced a constant state of anxiety
Every habit is formed by repeating a behavior repeatedly, but if that behavior is coupled with a particularly intense feeling, the emotional response itself becomes a reflex reaction as well. We are all experiencing anxiety at the moment, and this condition of anxiety has been there for the last one and a half years, although at varying degrees of severity. The second wave is marked by a significant increase in instances of illness and mortality, causing the neurological system to be overwhelmed with stress hormones, the consequences of which are likely to last in the form of the development of anxiety disorders long after the tragedy has passed.
Those in particular professions such as health care workers and journalists, who are seeing the crisis unfolding firsthand, are under immense stress, and signs of emotional depletion and burnout are already manifesting themselves. Patients with clinically significant bouts of panic, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorders have evolved in the general community and need medical and psychological treatment.
The impact on developing personalities of young kids
When it comes to living their instincts, connecting physically with their peers, adhering to a disciplined routine that includes sleeping patterns, eating patterns, and going to school, the younger generation is unable to do so and instead resorts to online activities to keep themselves entertained, all of which has far-reaching consequences for their developing personalities. As a result of the illness and poor healthcare facilities, many children and young people are losing their grandparents, parents, and other close family members, causing them to become more fearful of socializing and losing their trust in healthcare and governmental agencies.
A significant rise in phobias about medical diseases and insecurities
All of this can create personalities who are apprehensive in social situations, who prefer the virtual world to the actual world, who have extensive phobias about medical conditions and are insecure about treatment possibilities, and who are concerned about the future. It is thus critical to concentrate on the anxieties and challenges of the younger generation while fostering optimism and a feeling of security in their hearts and minds.
There has to be a shift away from negative messages about doom and towards positive messages about tolerance and resilience, such as so many good Samaritans saving lives, inspiring others, maintaining faith, and becoming more robust in the face of tragedy, among other things. We must concentrate on the opportunity presented by a problem to learn from our mistakes and make positive changes in our lives!
