Adapting to new normal is best way to cope with stress from COVID-19

With the improvement in containing and prevention of the coronavirus, the work force of the governmental machinery will work in full-swing soon, ending the working in two shifts by practicing social distancing.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has changed almost every aspect of our lives, adding increased anxiety, stress and depression and often making a bad situation worse.
Both the people and the employees of the country are feeling a sense of uncertainty and heightened stress right now- about their health and financial security amidst the pandemic.
The global pandemic has impacted not only the physical health of many individuals but their mental health as well. If you’re anxious, depressed, or struggling to sleep through the night, you’re not alone.
Today is the time for us to adapt to the new normal ways of life to cope with the stress from the COVID-19.
The governmental employees, especially those who have to get close contacts with the people risking their health, and possibly their lives, dealing with the public for hours each day, should remember that the old normal is gone and they would have to get used to a very different new normal. It means we cannot expect a life as it existed before COVID-19.
Before resuming activities, we must comply with the requirements for safe guidelines directed by the Ministry of Health and Sports.
During this time of uncertainty and stress, the need to prioritize individual health and well-being is stronger now than ever, and we can help each other by having a caring and empathetic work culture, keeping mental health as a key focus throughout this pandemic.
To achieve success in prevention and containing the coronavirus individual participation is the key. They must remember that their behaviour and conduct will impact everyone around them.
In this time of the virus, it is important for everyone to look after our mental, as well as our physical health, and we all should display more sympathy and understanding, as the pandemic does not seem to be going away any time soon.
