10 recommendations to defeat coronavirus and isolation stress

With the decimation of inter-country borders thanks to the developing and widespread technology, the rapid spread of epidemics worldwide has caused coronavirus to suddenly leave even very important issues such as economy, global warming, politics, earthquakes in the background. Negative reactions can be seen at some point in the psychology of individuals who are intertwined throughout the day through the media with many news about the number of cases in countries, death rates, vaccine and drug studies, whether the virus has mutated. Coronavirus disease,in which people are usually caught at a time when they are not ready with the idea that “it doesn't happen to me”, greatly changes the life of both the person and his family. It is also useful in this sense to dwell on the psychological effects caused by isolation, which people sometimes notice late. It can create feelings that a person cannot do what they want to do in such a way as to deprive them of their freedom, a feeling of inhibition in themselves, and then aggression.

Negative feelings are further increased when people's fears about the risk of losing their jobs or even loved ones over time are added to the already existing environment of uncertainty, as well as a complete change in life order. Anger, intolerance,communication problems that occur along with depression, anxiety, depression, such as disorders can be followed. First of all,rather than an understanding of fatalism as in all matters, communities try to be prepared for any disasters that may arise and are properly informed, helping to take measures in advance. When people feel safe in this way, the pressure and stress on them also decreases. Apart from such material preparation, another point to note is the realization of how effective human psychology is in understanding and eliminating the global epidemic. It is clear that every effort in which a person supports each other with their loved ones, without feeling alone,during such a difficult period has a positive contribution. As we try to create a new life routine for ourselves, increasing the capacity to adapt to changes will also reduce the level of stress.
