Life was difficult before the pandemic, but new challenges have taken an additional toll. Financial hardships, the lack of physical human interaction, teleworking, staying updated with new information, and much more have worn-out thousands of people across the globe. Luckily, the end seems to be in sight! As vaccines are rolling out, the COVID-19 virus is predicted to be in control by the fall of this year, according to experts. However, this doesn’t mean that new mental health challenges won’t arise. So, what are they, and how to prevent them according to Reputation Rehab?
Unfortunately, for some of us, life will not return to normal, or at least not right away. Being cooped up in your house for months will no doubt change the way you interact with others and the environment outside. Some will find it draining to maintain a decent conversation; others will be overstimulated with car noises, busy streets, and more. In addition, the symptoms of social anxiety, such as speaking very quietly and avoiding eye contact, will be more prevalent.
When you’re feeling like this, it is important to challenge yourself! It may sound scary at first, but getting yourself out of that comfort bubble and training your mind to not be fearful of new challenges are the best ways to start. After all, we as humans are social creatures. We thrive on human connections and interactive conversations that stimulate our thoughts and behaviors. Therefore, once your social level goes past that threshold, you will be on the right track to overcoming social anxiety.
Of course, it is important to note that progress is not linear and that every individual goes at a different pace. But that does not mean some will overcome while others will fail. You will get to your destination once you put away your safety blanket! Here at Reputation Rehab, our experts can help you along the way!
Burnout can leave people feeling exhausted, empty, and unable to cope with the demands of life. It is people’s reaction towards chronic job stress which could lead to exhaustion, cynicism (less identification with the job), and feelings of reduced professional ability. If not intervened, burnout could lead to serious prolonged mental and physical illnesses, therefore, now is the time. The best approach is to talk to a mental health professional who can help you discover the strategies you need to feel your best. Reputation Rehab can connect you with the right resources!
