How to Entertain Yourself During The Pandemic

I am an extrovert. So when the pandemic came in early 2020 in my country, Indonesia, I should cancel my trip to Ho Chi Minh City. It was a challenging time and also testing myself. Suddenly I could not go anywhere and at that time I was starting my writing class business. I couldn’t imagine the next journey of my future.


Mental health awareness during the pandemic

When the pandemic hit my country and finally I was infected in July 2021, I experienced more mental health challenges. What is another bad impact of the pandemic on our mental health?


Anxiety increasing

This was what I felt during my self-isolation moment. I was infected, but I only had mild symptoms so I didn’t need to go to a hospital. However, anxiety increased sharply and it could cause depression if I couldn't handle it well.


I love to meet and hang out with my closest friend, as an ENFP, that activity is my fuel. No wonder other people might feel the same as I was. When they should do the lockdown, self-isolation, or take care in a hospital, the mental health challenge would be so hard.


Suicidal thought or self-harm

After reading some articles or news that was about the business bankruptcy, I think about people who lost their job after the pandemic stroke in their hometown. If we were sink in the suffering and focus on the loss, suicidal thought could occur.


I never thought about it, but I worried about the other people who suffered than me. The depression could lead someone to do self-harm too. We need an anchor to hold and avoid this kind of thought.
