Dear fellow Singaporean,
I do understand that for the past 3 months, it has been challenging and unprecedented for you. And During this period when you are cooped up at home, how do you feel?
Hey, I bet you haven’t imagined before life without Mcdonald’s, Bubble Tea and Old Chang Kee!! LOL
How about queue for 30 mins to get into Fairprice and spend the next 2 hours queuing to pay for your grocery.
As fellow Singaporeans, we understand the stress that everyone is going through during the COVID-19 pandemic, having to make some drastic changes in our lifestyles definitely hasn’t been a walk in the park.
The coronavirus pandemic is the worst global crisis since World War II”
Mr Guterres said that the scale of the crisis was due to “a disease that represents a threat to everybody in the world and… an economic impact that will bring a recession that probably has no parallel in the recent past”.
Stay United, Stay Safe. Stay Home
In this unprecedented time, our life changed to the extent that you and me are caught off-handed. Not sure what to do next.
And of course, I know, as we are in the same shoes. At times I know you will feel extremely bored, and different negative emotions silently creeped into our mind
Do you know that feeling sian will affect your emotions negatively which will then affect the relationship with your family due to all the unnecessary tension caused?
Boredom is a Serious Mental Problem Right Now
A key reason why we go on holidays is that a change in environment is a cure for boredom and a period for our mental state to recharge. With the current Covid-19 situation, this luxury has become unavailable to us. Not only that, wanting to step out of our doorstep itself has also become a luxury.
Erin Westgate, a professor specialising in boredom research from the University of Florida, has sounded the alarm about the spiking levels of boredom across the world right now. That state of mind, has been correlated with higher levels of drug and alcohol abuse, depression, and anxiety. All of these causing people to become desensitized to emotions.
According to several studies, bored people would rather self-administer shocks than continue watching a dry video, and they’re more likely to engage in reckless behavior in search of an emotional reward.
With boredom being a common state that people experience, few have realized that this could actually be a serious problem and is one that we cannot ignore till a solution is found.
