Thursday April 23, 2020 7:00 - 8:30 pm.
We know from studies during the SARS epidemic that quarantine has a serious effect on the mental health of health care workers. It predicted symptoms of acute stress disorder, depression, and alcohol abuse. Even three years later, quarantine was associated with post-traumatic stress symptoms, which were, again, more severe in health care workers. As a result, many experienced avoidance behaviors and sought to minimize contact with patients. Some didn’t report back to work at all.
Uncertainty and change can be unsettling and stressful. In fact our brains are wired to fear it. They like familiarity and patterns. They also like to focus on problems and the potholes in life.
However, you don't have to stay in any fear, stress, or anxiety that you are experiencing in these uncertain times. STOP STRESSING! Learn to live your future with a mindset of abundance, joy and resilience.
