CORONA TIMES – THE STRESS WITHIN
From the epicentres to the periphery, from some partial successes to major collapses, the stress and strain to manage the corona situation against all odds has been a battle for the success of indomitable spirit of mankind. Being at home for days together which in normal times could be unimaginable, should be treated as the least of the stressful, given the circumstances we are in. The acclimatisation of your body as you get into higher altitudes is a must, so is the acclimatisation of mind as we get ready and finally face & manage bigger and bigger crisis with elan.
The stress within the medical personnel, what we call as the frontlines is both palpable and visible. They manage by their training, experience and expertise. Knowing the dangers to one’s person and delivering the best in those situations is what they are made of. Managing stress becomes their DNA. At times it comes out in the open when they see the people at large not taking enough efforts to contain it. These questions are raised in a few videos of medical practitioners, literally begging people to remain indoors.
The psychologists suggest ways and means to manage stress while working / staying indoors in different / foreign locations or being under self quarantine / isolation. Having a symptom even though unconnected to corona increases the stress considerably. We are not even competent to discuss the stress levels and it’s management of the ones who have it. Far away from these categories is another group who is stressed for a weird reason.
To make a mark in this crisis situation in the most negative and despicable manner. The photoshop pics and unconnected old videos etc are created and surreptitiously injected into the social media space to create a different story / narrative. At times it is for sheer scaremongering. They read peoples mind very well. Close on their heels are the Forwarders who don’t want to be left behind in the race to be the best of the also rans. They take the story of the fake content creators to its logical conclusion. The troll experts would also not like to left behind. Worst still are the ones who are on their prowl casting aspersions or passing inappropriate caustic remarks. Stresses of the desperados.
EVERYONE HAS TO FIND HIS WAYS & MEANS TO MANAGE STRESS AND COME OUT VICTORIOUS.
