What is this and how to cope

There are countless problems due to the unprecedented coronovirus (COVID-19) epidemic, with experts now worried about increasing levels of “epidemic fatigue”.

Health experts are concerned that people are getting frustrated by the epidemic and will take necessary safety precautions – leading to more cases.

According to experts, it is important that people find ways to deal with the national crisis, especially when we come in the fall and winter, where it will be even more difficult to maintain the ban.

Growing up for social people wearing a mask and being tired – especially with no end in sight – it can be difficult to maintain safe practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Psychologist Dr. of Cleveland Clinic Scott B says it may not be easy, but we need to find strength within ourselves to move forward.

“I call it desire: the desire to do inconvenient things because we value them and consider them meaningful, and they protect themselves and what we care about,” Bee said.

Experts say that it is natural to let our guard down over time, as we adjust to a threat and the stress levels begin to decrease. However, they emphasize the importance of remembering that even if people take safety precautions, not COVID-19.

People who make habits out of safety routines can help without thinking about them even after taking precautions.

According to BE, one of the best ways to fight the epidemic is to find new ways to stay on track.

“Finding a new mask, something that makes you excited, a new social removing activity; Discovering something novel and new is one way we excite our mind and it is one way we can overcome fatigue.

Many people also suffer from “zoom fatigue”, with work from home or engaging in virtual learning due to an epidemic.

It is important for everyone to take a break and get out and experience nature.

For children who experience fatigue, it is important to ensure that they stay active and exercise as much as possible. Both children and teens are struggling with a lack of socialization, so families are encouraged to help them find safe ways to connect with their friends.

While epidemic fatigue is widespread, many people are also experiencing anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems. Do not be afraid to seek help from your doctor or mental health professional. No need to suffer in silence.
