Human response to any stress can be variable, but one emotion that this Covid-19 pandemic has uniformly instilled in all populations of the world, is fear. In fact, the standard reassuring response of adults to their children “don’t worry, everything will be OK”, has transformed into “I’m not sure either when it will be OK”. We are being told by the health professionals and governments to adopt such preventive measures, which often lead as a by-product to fear, to protect ourselves from this illness. This fear can lead to anxiety, which results from a feeling of losing control. Our mind gets engaged in unhealthy ways to cope with anxiety, and we can start focusing on the worst-case scenarios. This often leads to physical signs of increased stress and tension, and psychologically gives rise to anger and irritability, which explains the rise in domestic violence since the pandemic is taking its effect. The times of stress can bring out the best and the worst in humans.
