Common Reactions to a Pandemic and Post Isolation

The most common reaction to a pandemic is hyper-vigilance – being over-cautious and wary about things, such as when a person coughs or is not wearing a mask. These feelings can be exacerbated by the fear of contamination. Some people may have trouble concentrating, making decisions, or feel sad, angry or overwhelmed. Others may experience physical symptoms such as headaches, muscle aches, and stomach aches, or have disrupted sleeping and eating patterns. These are all normal reactions, and over time, as life gets back to normal, these feelings usually decrease.

After regularly hearing messages like “stay home and stay safe”, from July 2021 big changes took place.  Many activities that were restricted or closed resumed, and the wearing of face masks became voluntary.  For some, these changes caused an increase in tension and some felt more socially anxious than ever.  You are not the only one and if you are experiencing higher levels of anxiety, it’s understandable.
