Most of us are fully aware of the impact of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, on our daily lives. From lockdowns to homeschooling to social distancing to quarantines to isolation, life is no longer what we once knew. A lot of us might have lost our jobs or been forced to take time off without pay. Some of us have had to shutter our businesses temporarily or even forever. A few us might even know someone who has gotten infected with the virus. And the media keeps a daily tally of the infection and mortality count from the novel coronavirus. All of this, is mentally challenging, exhausting, and frightening.
For the most part, the world is focused on the health, social, and economic impact of COVID-19 on our lives, but we also need to recognize and address the huge impact the virus has made on our mental wellbeing.
Traumas such as COVID-19 pandemic leave residual psychological scars on human beings – both young and old. Many of us are currently dealing with anxiety, nightmares, depression, emotional numbness, and detachment from other people. We’re certainly not living a normal life and might not go back to normalcy anytime soon. Sadly, most of us will deal with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after all of this is over.
As grim as it sounds though, we can do something to help and empower ourselves. We might not be in control of the health and economic consequences of COVID-19, but we can, to an extent, mitigate how much the pandemic affects our mental health by using some coping tactics and specialized psychotherapy tools.
