The pandemic outbreak of the novel Coronavirus has resulted in the complete shutdown of the entire world. People are isolated in their homes for almost the past three months. As soon as the news of lock-down broke, people went crazy and started panic buying of the products. In the hustle and bustle of the pandemic, people rushed to their nearest stores to stock up everything in their homes. Many people even bought necessary things in a highly excessive amount that the needy ones couldn't get their hands on those.Once the panic buying phase was over, then came the isolation phase where the entire world was advised to stay at their homes until it’s too important to go out. Self-isolation has led several people to psychological problems like depression and stress. Many people started feeling loneliness and helplessness because of social distancing, which made them unable to meet their family and friends. Whereas, many also started suffering from chronic stress due to long term depression and anxiety.
We all are in the isolation phase right now, and everyone is dealing with it on their own. People are overusing social media as they have plenty of spare time. The majority of people are attending their meetings and lectures online, which also drains a lot of their energy and made them fatigued. To overcome this isolation stress, people need to balance their routine and adopt a healthy life. The best way to get rid of isolation fatigue is to stay home but active. Work out to keep fit and active, be productive by performing tasks that are helpful, spend some quality time with your family. However, if you feel alone, text, or video call your favorite people, share your thoughts, laugh out, and make each other feel better in this hard time.
If you are going through a severe mental breakdown due to isolation fatigue, reach out to online psychologists for therapy. This is a tough time for every single human on this planet, and we have to make it through the plight calmly and patiently by staying home for our own's and others' safety as well.
