COVID Fatique

First of all I don’t want to panic anyone, we are not talking about a new strain of this COVID-19 virus that has plagued us for the most of this year. Only what we have been generally feeling as this virus drags on. If you feel any of the following you have COVID Tired, over stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, anxiety, scared and sometimes hopelessness you got it. It is the same thing I have been feeling for months, I just didn’t know what it was called until they mentioned it on the local news.

UC Davis Health has this article that talks about how we all feel.

We’re tired of being cooped up, tired of being careful, tired of being scared. Our collective fatigue is making some people careless – one reason COVID-19 is rising sharply again in California and throughout the U.S.

However, facing this fatigue is important for our personal health and for beating the coronavirus that has shaken American life so completely. Many people understand this, which adds to their exhaustion and stress.

“This is a real challenge,” said Kaye Hermanson, UC Davis Health psychologist in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. “There are no easy solutions.”

Even though the article goes on to talk about what might help LINK

It all comes down to taking your mind off to others things. In other words do something that requires your full concentration. Exercise, playing video games, reading, whatever. I fully admit I have put on over 10lbs since this started and I don’t care what anyone says. The lower cost gyms are closed, where I live it’s ones operated by the Chicago Park District. They have not been open since March.

So I ordered a Bike Trainer from Amazon and I have full intentions to use it. So you might be wondering if I have a bike, why don’t I use it? The answer is simple, I can’t ride with a mask. That mask restricts my breathing, and when you won’t go out without one. You see my problem, so that is why I am spending $90 to get one.

Meanwhile find something to do. I welcome submissions (ahmarwolf (@) mail dot com) Otherwise try and find something to do, believe me it helps.
