Recover From COVID-19 Mentally And Physically

Think the COVID-19 has left you scarred for life? Well, think again! There are many challenges in life that need your strong side to fight. COVID-19 was a realization of how deeply absorbed we are in our daily lives that we fear the unpredictable. Miracles and catastrophes are unexpected - one is rewarding while the other gives us valuable lessons for life. As the COVID-19 seems to be nearing its end, don’t take the bad parts of this experience with you into the future. Instead, you must learn, and recover - both mentally, and physically.

Make Sense Out Of The Situation

The best way to tackle a problem is to gather the facts you are already aware of. The COVID-19 was disastrous, but how, exactly? Sure, there is so much that went wrong, you can make a list out of it. ‘How to stop worrying and start living’ is an amazing anti-depressant book by Dale Carnegie that tells us ways to overcome our worried state of mind. The easy way to avoid overthinking is… to literally make a list out of it!

Physical Problems

Most of us couldn’t keep a good exercise routine during the quarantine. Some of us couldn’t even keep up good hygiene. We found ourselves automatically attracted to our couches and would let laundry pile up or wear the same pyjamas over and over again to avoid doing the laundry at all. With the sleep-wake cycle out of whack, we would eat at whatever time we please. It didn’t even matter whether we felt hungry or not - come on, there’s nothing better to do!

 

This routine has taken its toll on your body and you may not even have a clue. Here is a list of physical problems by Web MD. You may be facing these issues nowadays because of your quarantine routine.

 

  • Migraine
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle cramps
  • Lethargy
  • Skin sensitivity
  • Weak bones
  • Malnutrition

 

Mental Problems

Even the World Health Organization (WHO) holds COVID-19 accountable for mentally affecting people at an extreme level. Mental problems during COVID-19 were instinctive and self-inflicted as well. So much so, that protestors filled the streets during lockdowns and there was an entire group that refused to believe and acknowledge the existence of COVID-19 itself. They claimed that the COVID-19 is merely a hoax created by the government and mass media to get the public under their thumbs. You can read more about such community riots in articles on news media websites.

Testimony By WHO

WHO understands how badly anti-disease lockdowns can be for mental health. They explain the situation on their website, saying “Added to the fear of contracting the virus in a pandemic such as COVID-19 are the significant changes to our daily lives as our movements are restricted in support of efforts to contain and slow down the spread of the virus. Faced with new realities of working from home, temporary unemployment, home-schooling of children, and lack of physical contact with other family members, friends and colleagues, it is important that we look after our mental, as well as our physical, health.”

 

To recover from our mental health issues we must first acknowledge that we may be facing depression, anxiety, fear, or emotional stress. From their on, we may look for positive reinforcements to help us recover from the COVID-19 once and for all. Here are some meditation products you should try out to find peace of heart.
