Currently the only topic that is all over the place is Corona, yet less people are dealing with the news of COVID19 from a different perspective which must raise questions that should be drilled through our brain cells and not influenced by the media, social media platforms, WhatsApp groups or any negative driven person who is surrounding us. The reason why we are going through this analysis is to try and stop the paranoia that is dominating our lives.
Lately people have been roaming in a vicious circle, it is initiated through questions that first comes to mind like, what is this virus? Is it going to hit me? Is my immune system strong enough to fight COVID19? Am I going to die? This scenario arises because of the fear and panic which is being created due to the above-mentioned communication tools. This is affecting our cortisol body level, weakening our immune system and driving body hormones crazy and this biological conspiracy will affect human organ system and make it lose its weapons to fight against COVID19 and other different germs that is attacking it.
In this case, your interrogations are driving you in one specific direction thus causing a brain lock down.
To raise your cortisol level and transitively boost your immune system, you have to understand the happenings surrounding you. Imagine you are blind folded in a scary dark room where you are not allowed to turn on the lights and all the sounds around you are monstrous, how scared would you be? But what if you open your eyes and figure out that the room has white walls, green plants and sunrays are sneeking through your window.
Sky is blue and sun is shining nevertheless what they did to you is that they blind folded your eyes and turn on high volume scary sounds and left your brains to skydive in its own thoughts. And that’s exactly what media is doing to people nowadays.
Yes there is Corona Virus and yes it is spreading and yes we should act responsible, but base your actions on facts and not on fear. Keep in mind MERS death rate was around 30%, SARS death rate was around 10 percent while COVID19 is around 2 to 3 percent. So, in this situation, best practice is to control communication flow information and rely on facts and numbers.
