6 Ways to Stay SANE During This Crisis
How can we persevere in the face of this crisis? With love, thorough preparation, and consideration for others — as well as absolute lockdown.
1. You have to realize just how serious this is
The light at the end of the tunnel may be a long way off, but if we take it seriously, keep our social distance, wash our hands regularly, and keep an eye out for one other, we can stop the virus from spreading and reach the end.
When we emerge, we hope that a large number of people would choose a more loving, cooperative way of life, as well as a new sort of economy based less on greed, selfishness, and environmental damage, and more on the economics of kindness.
"A terrible emergency that no one has ever seen before."
The only way to reduce the chances of this happening everywhere is to put the entire country under lockdown. Keep yourself up to date.

2. Pay attention to the essentials
Assume you're infected with the virus. Now alter your attitude so that it does not spread to your friends and neighbors. This entails prioritizing handwashing, social distance, and sterilizing surfaces, doorknobs, and faucets.
There will be no more partying.
Hands should be washed in the manner of a heart surgeon like those in medical dramas.
Learn more about it. Keep an eye on it. Learn. Because it's a hand massage, it feels great.
Make yourself a Super-Preventer.
Inquire and learn.
What works and what doesn't?
Always keep your mask on.
Bleach is preferred to soap.
One of the first signs of Covid is the loss of your sense of smell and taste.
How long will the virus be able to survive on surfaces?

3. Practise gratitude
Be thankful that we have such a wonderful public health system and health-care providers who work tirelessly to keep us safe.
Be grateful for everyone in Singapore who is working so hard to make the community a safer place.
Thank the behind the scene heroes who keep all of our systems and infrastructure running. In honor of those who work tirelessly with no break to find a cure. For those who cultivate our food. Thank you to all of our front-line employees.
4. Stop being negative
Send the selfish imp of negativity, criticism, and blame packing if it finds its way into your heart. If it continues, take the time to figure out what it truly requires. Attention? Love?
Many of us have an inner jerk, but don't allow it endanger the lives of others. Many of us also have an inner critic who enjoys sabotaging our serene acceptance of ourselves. Unresolved childhood events are typically the source of our inner jerks and critics.
They perplex us, leaving us unsure of our true sentiments. We must ask ourselves, "Am I experiencing a realistic amount of dread, worry, or loneliness, or am I exacerbating these sensations by the way I'm thinking?"
If you have a buddy who is a good listener, schedule a time to talk about your negative thoughts and feelings with them.
5. Keep your anxiety in perspective
It's natural, given the number of things to be concerned about. It's a natural evolutionary reaction to a threat or danger. We need to take a step back and think on how we do things that may contribute to our stress and anxiety now more than ever, especially with the new covid deadlier strain-Omicron.
But don't allow it overwhelm you to the point that it prevents you from being sensible and taking action. Also, don't be fooled by COVID-19-related fake news, scams, or nonsense. What are the origins of the virus? It's a difficult situation.
6. Keep yourself prepared and learn First Aid
A first responder has been trained to recognize and treat a wide range of injuries and diseases that can occur both at work and at home. Many instances needing first aid are simple, and a first responder can typically assist without the need for an ambulance or transport to an already overburdened emergency room.
First responders are not trained to treat Covid-19 victims specifically, but they can recognize when vital signs suggest someone is sick and securely arrange for more medical care if necessary. The courses cover topics such as proper PPE for the present scenario, as well as changes in the role of first responders since the epidemic began.
The 100% eLearning Basic First Aid Course covers the essential skill of First Aid that everyone should know and be able to do.
Included is an introduction to CPR+AED with instructions of use and application. Delivered in a simple, practical format, it covers the management of common everyday first aid situations such as heart attack, choking and bleeding according to the Singapore Resuscitation and First Aid Council guidelines.
