Managing Anxiety and Isolation During Quarantine :

Edited Version| Hyderabad |13May2020

Since the Government declared the COVID-19 outbreak a global pandemic, many of us, even those who have not been infected by the virus, will choose to quarantine in our homes for the upcoming weeks. Capsized travel plans, indefinite isolation, panic over scarce re-sources and information overload could be a recipe for unchecked anxiety and feelings of isolation.

Here are a few Tips that could help you survive spiraling negative thoughts about this uncertain time.

  1. Reframe “I am stuck inside” to “I can finally focus on my home and myself” :-
  2. As dismal as the world may feel right now, think of the mandated work-from-home policy as an opportunity to refocus your attention from the external to the internal. Doing one productive thing per day can lead to a more positive attitude. Set your sights on long-avoided tasks, reorganize, or create something you’ve always wanted to. Approaching this time with a mindset of feeling trapped or stuck will only stress you out more. This is your chance to slow down and focus on yourself.

  3. Stay close to your normal routine :-
  4. Try and maintain some semblance of structure from the pre-quarantine days. For those individuals with children, sticking to a routine might be easier; however as you work at home or from Home , it could be tempting to fall into a more lethargic lifestyle, which could lead to negative thinking. Wake up and go to bed around the same time, eat meals, shower, adapt your exercise regimen, and be happy . Do laundry on Sundays as usual. Not only will sticking to your normal routine keep you active and less likely to spiral, it will be easier to readjust to the outside world when it’s time to get back to work.

  5. Avoid obsessing over endless Coronavirus coverage and News :-
  6. Freeing up your day from work or social obligations gives you plenty of time to obsess, and if you have a tendency to consult Google for every itch and sneeze, you may be over-researching the pandemic as well. Choosing only certain credible websites or some hospitals online consultation (Germanten Hospital ) for a limited amount of time each day will be in your best interest during this time.

  7. A chaotic home can lead to a chaotic mind :-
  8. With all the uncertainly happening outside your home, keep the inside organized, predictable and clean. Setting up mental zones for daily activities can be helpful to organize your day. For example, try not to eat in bed or work on the sofa- just as before, eat at the kitchen table and work at your desk. Loosening these boundaries just muddles your routine and can make the day feel very long. Additionally, a cluttered home can cause you to become uneasy and claustrophobic of your environment- so keep it tidy.

  9. Start a new quarantine ritual :-
  10. With this newfound time, why not do something special during these quarantined days?
    For ex-ample, perhaps you can start a daily journal to jot down thoughts and feelings to reflect on later. ,
    or,
    take a walk every day at 4 pm, connect with your sister over FaceTime/video call every morning, or start a watercolor painting which you can add to everyday. Having something special during this time will help you look forward to each new day.

  11. Use telehealth with Germanten Hospital as an option to talk to a professional if your anxiety becomes unmanageable :-
