Definite Difference Between those who are Sick and Those who are not Sick due to Corona

As “going out” has become longer with the expansion of corona, more and more people are suffering from so-called “corona fatigue”, which is emotionally tired. When “corona fatigue” worsens, there is a risk that depression and autonomic imbalance will develop.

Here are  features of “people who get tired of corona”. Please be careful if one applies.

1. People with too much information
I am worried when the corona expansion will converge. Many people are likely to spend hours watching TV every day or reading corona-related news on their smartphones to confuse their anxiety.

Basically, “correct information” helps to get rid of anxiety. However, most of the corona-related information that is flowing right now is only negative. There is a lot of information that causes anxiety and anxiety, and the more information you gather, the more anxiety increases, and your mental health becomes exhausted.

Be careful not to read too much “dark news”
Since many of the same contents are repeated, it is enough to watch news about corona once a day, about 15 to 30 minutes. If you carefully select and collect really important information online, 30 minutes will be enough.

The biggest cause of corona fatigue is exposure to a large amount of “negative information” for a long time. Collect information in moderation.

2. Person who is strict about going out
The other day, when I uploaded a YouTube video called “How to make going out self-restraining fun”, I received critical comments such as “What does” enjoy “mean”?

When you look up the word “self-restraint” in a dictionary, it says “go ahead from yourself, revise your actions and attitudes, and crawl.” Perhaps because the person is self-restraint, he thinks, “In the house, you have to be modest and solemn.”

This self-control is to prevent corona infection. The purpose is to “do not infect the virus, do not transmit the virus to people”, so if you are at home, you can do whatever you want. In fact, the slogan “Let’s have fun” is posted on the Tokyo website.

According to news reports and friends and acquaintances, it is said that the number of people who have become very nervous recently has increased. In the future, going out will be more or less likely to continue for several months.

From now on, if you’re feeling so nervous, you’ll definitely fall into “corona fatigue”. You don’t have to stop having fun even during the self-restraint period. Play with your child, play games, and enjoy dramas, anime, movies, etc. that you have never seen before. The more enthusiastic you should find something fun.

3. The person who stays up late
Due to the refraining from going out, many people may be staying up late at night, watching TV or playing games.

Since teleworkers don’t have to go to work, thinking “I should wake up just before 9 o’clock working time” will spur the night shift. Being late and awake and having an irregular life upset the “body clock”. As a result, it reduces sleep quality and accelerates physical and mental health problems.

“Regular life” is important because it is corona
Also, when sleep gets worse, immunity also decreases. Irregular life aggravates “corona fatigue”.

So what you should do is to have enough time to sleep for at least 7 hours to maintain the same wake-up time as before corona. It is very important to maintain a regular life.

4: One person who drinks every day
As I am a psychiatrist, I am worried about the effects of “alcohol,” given that self-examination is going on for a long time. Even at supermarkets, the beer and chuhai corners were so full that the sales could not be overtaken. As more people can’t drink outside, more people are drinking at home, and maybe the amount of alcohol they are drinking is increasing, possibly due to the stress of corona anxiety.

Many people think that “liquor is good for stress relief”, because it is sometimes drunk. Drinking alcohol every day increases the secretion of the stress hormone cortisol and reduces stress tolerance. Alcohol also has a negative impact on mental health because it reduces sleep quality.

People who take even small amounts “every day” have a great negative effect on the brain. It’s best to have two days off a week (a day when you don’t drink at all).

Alcohol is a lubricant for communication. We recommend drinking with people while having fun. Drink with your family or with friends at an online drinking party.

Drinking alone will increase the amount of drinking, and drinking with everyone will moderately reduce the amount of drinking. Let’s use alcohol well, not be drunk.

5: lonely person
“Loneliness” not only increases the risk of depression and dementia, but also has a negative impact on mental health.

To refrain from going out means staying at home and not meeting anyone. Misunderstanding as lockdown of human relations promotes “corona fatigue”.

It is very important not to meet your friends “directly”, so it is very important to keep in touch with each other via SNS or phone, and to see the other person’s face on a video phone such as Zoom.

Care for “elderly families” is also important
Many elderly people, such as elderly people, are not afraid of corona infection and will not see anyone without leaving the house. It is not wrong as a countermeasure against corona infection, but please keep in touch with friends and relatives with a smartphone etc.

Even if the door of the house is closed, the door of the heart is open. Otherwise, it will look like “depression”. Elderly people are most worried about “corona fatigue”. Because it is a high-risk group that becomes more serious when infected with corona, they will spend each day with anxiety and fear many times that of young people.

If you have older parents or grandparents, call once every few days. Or send an email or message every day. Communication leads to peace of mind.

Peace of mind enhances immunity and anxiety reduces immunity. Your voice or message may heal your parents and grandparents of corona fatigue.

Suffering from going out and fighting against the coronavirus are long-term battles. Let’s overcome it while enjoying it and valuing “connection” without being too nervous.
