Yes, there’s Netflix and all the streaming services to occupy your time, but that too gets boring really fast.

Coronavirus Information Brain Overload

Here are some things you can try to reduce tension caused by the coronavirus instead of burning-out.

Corona Virus Stress Tips

With all that’s been happening over the last 2 months regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it continues to change our lives, I can honestly say, I feel like I’m having a total Coronavirus information brain overload. It seems like not only has it infected our species but also the majority of all news we digest, conversations we have among friends and families, and who knows, possibly even our dreams.

Yes, I know it’s a very serious threat, and people are dying as a result of it, but I can’t help it if my mind wants or needs a break from all the negative news and so on. By the time we get through this ordeal, I’m certain we will all have some form of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Here are some things I recommend you try to give your brain some headspace to balance-out instead of burn-out.

10 Tips For Avoiding Coronavirus Mental Stress

 

 

 

  1. Limit your intake of mainstream news – checking-in to the various news networks to get up-to-date information is not a bad thing but don’t stay continually tuned-in all day every day. Limit to yourself to 1-2 times max. FOMO (fear of missing out) is not helping here. Instead, it’s causing more stress and information overload.
  2. Don’t stay glued to Social Media – If you’re one of the many people out there that now have excessive time on their hands because you’re normally on-the-move a lot, don’t spend a large percentage of your day on social media to fill the gap. You’ll get a dopamine hit for sure, but after a while, the effects will be the same as continually reading/watching negative mainstream news.
  3. Try not to binge-watch Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu TV series in constant succession – One way to kill a tremendous amount of time is to binge-watch the various streaming TV series that’s currently in Netflix’s, Amazon’s, Hulu’s vast content library. However, your mind can only handle so much sitting on a couch watching your tv display constantly for more than 8 hours straight. As human beings, we are not meant to stay in a static position for long periods. Before you know it, you’ll start to feel weird aches and pains in places you didn’t before. Oh, did I mention you’ll start to stack-on weight quicker too?
  4. Don’t overdose on gaming – Gaming has its plus and minuses like everything else. Consistently playing for 5+ hours can stress you out and make you a not-so-nice person to be around (this is especially true if you’re playing first-shooter games and keep getting wiped out because of your teammates).
  5. Keep the alcohol intake down to acceptable levels – Everyone has their alcohol tolerance level and should know when they’re about to exceed it. Try not to overdo the drinking which then would cause other physical issues for yourself or your family. We already have the coronavirus and shortage of toilet paper to deal with. 
  6. Be safe with your sexual activities – Remember, we’re battling a pandemic right now so the last thing you need is some kind of STD to add to the issues you’re already facing. Try not to overdo the adult entertainment either. Yeah, you know what I mean.
  7. Exercise/Meditate/Sleep – Exercise as much as you can to keep the blood flowing, your energy level up. and your body strong. Compliment that with daily meditation of 10 mins or more if you want to challenge yourself. Be sure to get 6hrs or more of good quality sleep.
  8. Learn a new skill – Is there a skill you’ve always wanted to learn but didn’t have the time? Well, now you have the time. There are lots of self-help, DIY, tutorial videos on Coursera, edX, Udemy, Youtube (to name a few) you can signup for free to help you become a jack of all trades and a master of many too.
  9. Book reading – Similar to “Learning a new skill,” reading a book or listening to an audiobook can occupy your time and give your mind the escape from reality it needs.
  10. Get creative – Now may be a good time to get into arts and craft, interior decorating, poetry, music/video creation, animation, or something along those lines. Who knows, maybe at the end of this, you create a music hit, an art masterpiece, or a video/animation that goes viral and becomes another revenue stream.

What Happens if Jobs Never Come Back?

Contract workers. Outsourcing. Artificial intelligence. Robotics. And now, the largest economic crash in a century. The pressure on American workers staying employed keeps slipping further away.

What Happens If Jobs Never Come Back?

Long before the Covid-19-induced crash, workers were facing entrenched financial pressures. Years of poor policy design, offshoring, technological advances, stagnant minimum wages and declining unions have extracted a big toll.

Inflation-adjusted wage growth of typical workers since the early 1970s has been virtually flat at 0.2% per year. The value created by workers continued to move up to businesses and investors. While employees, who primarily rely on wage income and not investments, saw ballooning health care, schooling and housing costs that far outpaced inflation and wages.

Remember, it was only 2008 when we experienced an “unprecedented” worldwide economic collapse. Trillions of dollars of value vanished in thin air, while millions of people lost their savings, homes and 401K retirement nest eggs.

The subsequent rebound brought stock market highs and full, but uneven employment. Real wage growth barely budged. Then came Covid-19.

What full employment really means

An unemployment rate of just under 5% is considered full employment. This rate means that people who want a job will likely have one or will get one soon. But that rate doesn’t really exist.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics does not count those who stopped looking over the past four weeks. This leaves a big gap for the real number of unemployed, underemployed and barely attached to the workforce. True unemployment numbers are always higher by at least a few percentage points.

In the case of Covid-19, the number was significantly higher due to furloughs and others not being counted in official unemployment numbers. Many of these workers will be let go as the anemic economy limps on.

Why this economic crash is different

Notwithstanding the enormous human toll of Covid-19, the impact on the labor force and society will far outlast it. One side-effect the pandemic is job automation will continue to gain momentum at a difficult time for us to absorb it.

Employers will turn to robotic and AI (artificial intelligence) automation to augment, and many times replace, current and future employees. It not only saves labor costs, it also helps future-proof businesses from the workforce disruptions like we’re experiencing now.

In January 2019, the Brookings Institute released a study citing that 36 percent of U.S. employment (52 million jobs) is at risk for high exposure to automation 2030. Another 57 million are at medium risk. That is a significant percentage of the 164.6 million in the U.S. workforce we have today.

We are unprepared for the coming wave of automation

Covid-19 has exposed many weaknesses in our government’s ability to handle crisis, even when that risk was in plain sight. The pandemic has exposed how little investment we’ve made in the health and wellbeing of workers over the decades—all in the shadow of massive wealth and stock market gains.

This transition will be hard on the labor force and the country. The massive technical and social shift that may rival the economic upheaval the country experienced by the advent of the Industrial Age if not handled well. One thing for sure, it will change our country, society and how we view work forever.
