At this point, we've all lost count on how many days we are in quarantine. As the days seem longer and longer, you quickly run out of things to do. You notice that you are under extreme stress and anxiety being trapped within your home with no deadline. You've cleaned your clutter, washed your car, made and tried new dishes, helped your children with every sheet of homework, and binge-watched over 400 hours of Netflix, and you realize that that isn't enough to remove this anxiousness. Half of the population is at work, and the other half are at home quarantining. At times, we subconsciously allow our minds to get flooded with information on social media that isn't useful to us.
I've personally had my bouts with insomnia, anxiety, and panic attacks, which in turn has led me to get prescribed anxiety and panic attack medication after two years of not needing any medication.
