Every house has one question asked every morning ?
Every house has one question asked every morning, How many cases were recorded? This may seem like a very basic question these days but subconsciously this affects our well-being. The constant urge to know the numbers, the graphs to check the rise day wise, country wise and whatnot.
Our morning should be rejuvenating, cheerful, helping us to kick start the day on a positive note. Staying updated is good, it’s competitive but also knowing when to gain the knowledge is empowerment, sounds strange right!? But timing is everything. Reading the newspaper early in the morning is good but is it good to read the number of murders cases or the rising number of molestation cases. Reading is power but knowing what to read and when to read is empowering.
The fact that the past few years have hard on the economy and local businesses but the fact that we talk so little about how it affects our well being our mental health shows how less we talk about this topic. Seeing our toddlers, kids, youth, and every age group stuck at home confined to their rooms has led to a spike in anxiety levels and with increasing social media use, the feeling of FOMO and insecurities have peaked like never before. Yes, we have seen an increase in family time where families sit and talk, play games but once they close the room doors there are many still facing anxiety without showing the same to others. How do we deal with such situations? How can we stop overthinking? How can we strengthen our mental health?
There are many ways but yet not many for all of us. All of us have our ways to deal with depression and anxiety. Some talk, some play, some listen to music, some cry, some write, some cook, some just meditate. We can call these are escape activities. We all have to find out ways but there are always a few things that help us along with our escape activities.
