Stress and breakdown can take a high toll on COVID-19 patients. Stress is a demon that spreads negativity in UR body & mind—so much that U start feeling anxious about every day to come. U fear about UR financial situation, worsening chronic health condition, loss of sleep, concentration levels and, also about the health of UR near and dear ones. UR Feelings during isolation can turn overwhelming often. It is especially important to take care of UR mental health and get immediate help in a crisis. The chain of professionals including doctors, counselors, and psychologists can help U reduce UR anxiety and fear.

COVID Breakdown – Temporary or Long term?

The experience of breakdown is universal. People experiencing COVID breakdown are the same ones who struggle to deal with uncertainty. Most often, these people go through emotional breakdowns but, there is suddenly a special focus on them due to COVID. The pandemic is serving as an exclusive distraction.

Reaching out to the appropriate health professional to undergo counseling or therapy is the foremost important step. These professionals help U to connect with others, nourish UR mental wellbeing and prescribe habits based on UR personal conflict. Depending on the rate of UR action, frequency of visits, practice, and inner strength, the breakdown can be overcome.


Self-introspection by asking URselves a lot of questions is the solution. For example, if U have gone through the COVID trauma–instead of going to a negative zone–U can choose to introspect and ponder, “the lesson I learn from COVID is…..” and then complete the sentence.”


How to overcome the inner feeling of “I’m constantly struggling.

The feeling of “I’m struggling” is quite common in everyone’s life. Despite being fine, many times our brain pushes us to think otherwise. Now, how do U get over that? U can opt to take cues from Buddhism that propagates two main ideas – awareness and equanimity.
Awareness is drawing UR focus on a particular thought, feeling, or emotion. Equanimity is the calmness and composure during a difficult situation.

Awareness is the only way U can start working out on UR feelings. U begin the journey of transformation by being aware. The words that are manifested by UR mouth are triggered by an emotional state. And developing awareness about UR emotional state can control the words we speak and feel.

How can U develop awareness?

Self-introspection by asking URselves a lot of questions is the solution. For example, if U have gone through the COVID trauma–instead of going to a negative zone–U can choose to introspect and ponder, “the lesson I learn from COVID is…..” and then complete the sentence.”

In other cases, it is often advantageous to ask questions such as, “I feel content when…….”. These questions help U to peel the layers of thought

When U introspect with a deeper awareness and understand UR core emotions that drive UR words, U begin to understand that UR words manifest UR reality. This is how U shift UR life positively.

COVID patients often feel lonely. How can U address it?

Instead of being lonely, COVID patients can be encouraged to practice solitude. Solitude is useful to reflect upon UR life and take important decisions. Patients should understand that solitude is a chosen state, but loneliness is a forced state. While both look similar from a physical aspect, both are yet quite different. Practicing solitude is a wiser way to spend time with URself and focus on UR solo energies. Different people get motivated by different things. What’s UR passion that drives the energy in U. Find out to lead a contented life!
