How to deal with the post-COVID-19 era?
If you’re wondering “when will the covid-19 end?”, you’re not alone. Each infected person infects others. Many infected people do not show symptoms and can infect another person unknowingly.
Until the vaccine is widely accessible, you must take precautions so that nobody catches or spreads COVID-19.
Even when everything starts again, there will be restraints and you are dealing with huge shifts in your lives. So, what does the post-Covid-19 era look like? Here is some advice on how to adapt to the “New Normal” to follow.
1.Develop a new routine and record your experiences
Having a routine can cultivate some feeling of normalcy during these challenging times.
Cannot go to the gym?
Try online home-based programs that do not require equipment.
Do you miss your morning tea at the office to start your day? Make your own and relish it while checking your emails.
Unable to hang out with your friends?
Connect via video calling platforms.
Capture or write about your experience – be it your feelings, emotions, activities, anything! This can be quite healing.
2.Create a space inside your space
Considering that most of you may be working from home, much of your life may happen between four walls. Have a designated room or area at home to work or study. Also, dress to be in the right frame of mind to whip up the enthusiasm.
3.Take a break
In such hours of chaos, take things one moment at a time. Fix a real goal and modify it when you need to. Give yourself some mercy during periods like these.
It may be harder to keep the house neat with everybody at home. Between working, teaching the kids, and doing other chores, there may be days when you don’t have the energy to cook a meal. So, order takeaway (thereby, support your local restaurant) or reheat some frozen food.
4.Stay attentive but not anxious
Keep an eye on the news owing to the shifting COVID-19 landscape and the constant updates about what you are and aren’t permitted to do. However, tuning in to every development can easily become burdensome.
Get your information from valid sources instead of social media where people are venting and voicing their problems, which can increase your own anxiety.
Emphasize on local developments to estimate your chances of contracting COVID-19. This helps you to be relevantly concerned instead of getting anxious or, for the worse, getting panic attacks.
