Are we in a life threatening situation?
No, As per current data, global mortality rate of COVID19 is around 5% or only 50 people could die out of 1000 (For India its around: 2.9%). remaining 950+ people will recover with the help of adequate medical care
Just imagine you are one among those 950+ people!
Nevertheless, make sure you are following strictly all the guidelines regarding COVID19 like hygiene practice, social distancing, staying at home, etc
What ‘if I get affected’ by COVID19?
Follow the guidelines of GOI regarding COVID19 issued from time to time.
Be aware of your feelings like guilt, regret etc. These feelings make you feel depressed and affect your recovery rate
Focus on your strength to fasten your recovery.
Kindly note that what ‘if I don’t get affected’ (bcz, ‘what if’ is anxiety eliciting thinking pattern!)
Watch your emotions: Your fear could escalate your perception of the risk involved and anger makes you perceive the risk less, makes you highly vulnerable
What if one of my parent get affected…
Again anxiety eliciting thinking pattern!! Drop the thought process
If they get affected by COVID19, still I ask you to stay calm and follow guidelines and do as per the medical advice
Remember that you are not alone. The entire Government machinery/medical fraternity is with you or with your parent in the recovery process!
Am I doing enough to prevent it?
Do as much as possible! Hand hygiene, social distancing…
Remember that no human being can change his habit suddenly!
It takes lot of effort in terms of being aware of it, stay calm, practice it again and again
Stay calm and slow down!( I emphasize stay calm because your anxiety will make you do the opposite, where you touch your eyes, nose and mouth more often!)
Feel that you are under control. Feeling of loss of control makes you feel guilty, hopeless and worthless
How to improve my immunity?
It takes time and it is a gradual process!
Nutritious food, sleep, exercises, and positive thinking will take time to enhance your immunity
Not to worry: Doing some thing is better than nothing! Start now and feel good within yourself!
We talk about the importance of media in the society, and nation’s development. But the irony is too much of media exposure-especially digital and social media will make you feel distressed
The research says that people with the highest exposure to media coverage of negative incidents experienced more acute stress than who actually exposed to the real incidents!!
So lesser the media, higher your ability to study!
Motivation to study depends…
Your performance will be high, if your course matches:
Aptitude (your CET/PESSAT score, approximately)
Personality & Discipline
Set goals: Both short term and long term
Short term goals depends upon:
Your goals should be realistic
Make your goal as much as specific
It must be measurable
Some body must have achieved it or achievable!
Sufficient time should be there to achieve
5R for effective studying
Read for 45-50 minutes and take break for 5 minutes
Recollect - Write down few points/formulas or use mind mapping
Reflect: reflect upon a what you have read after every concept or paragraph
Revise- after the end of every study period and at the end of the day, every week, etc
Reward-Yourself with a compliment, sweets, snacks or anything you like
Take it as a challenge!
Whatever I had given is research based and it will help you a lot
