A New Insight

(Part 1 of 4)
I think my wife is a little sad about her life and the fact that she doesn’t have the way to do anything. Although she would love to stay at home with kids, but that's because she feels guilty for not contributing to the family’s financial wellbeing.

Do you sometimes feel isolated, depressed, bored, anxious and frustrated? We are going through a national trauma in which many believe that their lives are in danger, the economy is collapsing and will never recover, and life will never be the same again.

A New Insight

Most of the people I interact with never know that I struggle with anxiety on a daily basis. People do not understand that anxiety and depression can be as stressful as the physical fight between professional boxers. Being in a depressive cycle means that I cannot stay up to date, so I let things passing by own and use my energy to do something else.

➤ Staying At Home.

It can contribute to anger and isolation. People will feel that they have no control over the situation due to the isolation or lockdown. One reason stay-at-home moms feel like working moms is a lack of appreciation and missing out on a sense of accomplishment.

28 percent of stay-at-home moms reported frequent or partial depression when asked how they felt every day, compared to 17 percent of working moms.

➤ Alright, I Am Bored Now.

Not only depression, boredom can also be harmful to mental health. Boredom gets its name because many people believe that a state of boredom equivalent to a lack of productivity or concentration on a particular task.

If you feel depressed and stay home, you are not alone, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Time alone is precious and isolating yourself can make you depressed. Being in touch with other people not only relieves boredom but is also an important part of reducing feelings of isolation.

The coronavirus epidemic has prompted most of us to stay home and creates social and physical distance. If you're feeling lazy, it's not coffee that will help, but rather five ten minutes of rest or exercise that requires increased attention and quick reactions, such as juggling.

After more than 4 weeks of self-isolation, I had several hours to come up with a long list of things to do during the lockdown which I will share in upcoming posts. Stay tuned!!
