With the ongoing pandemic, we see several reports which suggest that symptoms of anxiety and depression are common psychological reactions in the population and amongst almost all age groups.

It’s safe to say after the year we had, everyone is a little bit anxious. Although we have somewhat adapted to the new normal, some might still have difficulty adjusting—especially those who might have lost a loved one, a partner or a dear friend. With the whole medical sector focused on fighting the disease, we have put other medical issues such as mental health aside to concentrate on achieving herd immunity. Dealing with the sudden loss of work or with the death of a loved one can also add additional amounts of anxiety to individuals and households.

Some reported having insomnia, difficulty eating, an increase in alcohol consumption and worsening chronic conditions due to the worry and stress caused by the pandemic. With the ongoing pandemic, specific measures must be taken to prevent poor mental health and burnout. As the tension rises, so does our anxiety; however, we are here to tell you that you can take preventative action to safeguard your mental health.
