Unless you have been living on the moon for the past few months, you'll be aware that Covid-19 is infecting every part of the news and social media. This easily provokes anxiety and unease in us as it represents a threat in a number of ways. From the obvious health threat to us, our loved ones and to the effect it will have on our lives, from people losing their jobs to people working bravely on the front line.

Anxiety is future oriented in that we fear what could happen and worry if we're going to cope with whatever the future event will be. Those who feel more vulnerable and those who are prone to feeling anxious are at risk from having adverse emotions. Our anxieties will always have some plausibility but we can irrationally overthink which will create unnecessary worry.


I was speaking to my brother on the phone the other day, and in the background I could hear the news on the TV and of course it was all about Coronavirus, which in itself provokes anxiety when you hear how many deaths there has been on that day. I myself don't watch or read the news anymore because I kept getting notifications stating how many deaths there had been around the world. I do believe the media has some part to play in advertising and limiting what we see, in the sense of how it is going to have a detrimental effect on people's mental health.

I asked if he watched the news on a regular basis, he replied by saying yes he said his fascinated by what's going on, I must admit I didn't understand. A few days had past and what my brother said was still with me, I was trying to understand he's meaning behind what he meant by fascinating.

Upon reflection I came to the conclusion that what he meant, and knowing my brother and how he loves history, is that we are all living in modern history. People in hundreds of years will be speaking of the year 2020 when the world was shut down due to Covid-19. Children will be learning how the world came together every Thursday at 8pm to clap and make as much noise as possible to show how grateful we all were to the NHS and key members and what heroes they truly are. Covid-19 may have shut down the world, but despite all of that it showed how resilient people can be when we come together.

I'm an optimistic person and believe there is a silver lining in every adversary, the silver lining in this pandemic we are all facing is that it will bring us all closer together and makes us all realise what it is that is truly important to us.

Take care and stay safe.
