A crisis isn’t a crisis unless it has taken the maximum from you. One in today is the havoc of the Corona Virus.
It’s nowhere expected to stay in the best state of your mind, when the whole world is compromising every minute. It ought to get negative thoughts while looking for something good to happen, as there are less of positive outcomes than negative ones at this time. The pandemic has scrambled mental well-being.
The governments are making enormous efforts in keeping our people safe, protecting, and helping us with needy things at every level. Major public figures, celebrities, local people, everyone are all making their contributions to get this on track.
Around the same time, holding our positive senses on seems to be the only way out to endure and survive here.
Human is a composite reflection of all emotions that could be any living thing. The storage is our brains and it instinctively reduces higher functioning that allows us to plan out long-term expectations from life and brings it to primal, more immediate threat response. Amid this COVID-19 pandemic, self- soothing or mind nurturing are something we must have more than anything.
Physical balance may constitute an external factor to act upon, but mental stability comes from within, no negative external forces can climb the walls if the walls of positive thoughts are solid enough.

When we talk about stress, there is perpetual anxiety. A constant negative thought process leads to hopelessness, a disbalance of mental and physical health. It further affects your immune system and also behavior towards everything and everyone.
Let’s now precise our understanding down with “changes in human behavior”, which is obvious. We all by now, know the symptoms and probable causes to get caught by the novel corona-virus, but an inhuman way of treating ill-people is also taking place due to lack of empathy towards those who are suffering from mental illness. Everyone deals with any uncertainty differently, some have better endurance, practical understanding, and some worries before anything they do or even think.
