Abstract

Abstract The unprecedented and fierce pandemic has completely shattered the entire world since the time it has outbroken and is a matter of grave concern. Not knowing how this pandemic will play out, affects our physical and mental well-being against a backdrop of a world that is increasingly anxious, unhappy and lonely. Psychological stress is evident due to a sense of a lack of control in the face of such uncertainty. As a key measure to handle the pandemic, guidelines have been issued to practice social distancing, self-isolation and quarantine. The hitch with self- isolation or social lockdown are obvious symptoms of traumatic stress, confusion and annoyance, all of which are worsened by fear of the unknown which often leads to feelings of panic. An inherent fear of infection, having limited access to supplies of necessities, lack of information or the erroneous information, either provided inadvertently or maliciously is also ensuring to amplify the effects. Its indeed a very tough regime, hard to implement and follow but if attempted deliberately and systematically, we can hope to emerge all safe and revitalized with new energies and outlook towards life. The paper discussed how this prolonged period of social distancing may leave plenty of time for contemplation and reflection; as an individual, as a society and as a Nation. It emphasizes the need to navigate our thought process to construct a life that will be more content, stable and robust. ________________________________________________________________
