Choices come with worry

In these times of confusion, when the best experts are clueless, the right choice is no longer a simple task but can require lots of effort.

Being without work also robs us of our daily motivations and the good parts of our job, like positive customer feedback or our feeling of being valued and wanted.

Disruption Of Daily Habits

The ongoing lockdown, happening in varying degrees across the world, has presented humanity with new challenges, testing their patience and making adherence increasingly difficult. It has led to day-long video calls, irregular sleep patterns and lack of sunlight, which has made it an ordeal.

Before the lockdown, most people had a routine throughout their day, which was completely shaken up. The daily habits helped us make fewer momentary decisions(which require effort), which have now increased manifold. This spike in decision making from everything from how to work, what to wear, what to eat and how to commute, has resulted in decision fatigue.

The lack of natural communication and face-to-face interaction along with making most of the decisions in isolation has resulted in us being less empathetic or compassionate.

We need to identify small positives in the sea of problems around us and find meaning in life through unpleasant experiences. Example: Losing a job also means more time with family and loved ones.

Boredom

It's the state of being weary and restless through lack of interest. Boredom is rooted in the urge for meaningful activity or engagement that finds no satisfying avenues of expression.

Boredom can be divided into situational boredom (a temporary state of disengagement that nearly everyone encounters), and existential boredom (an unrelieved sense of emptiness, isolation, and disinterest, a condition intertwined with depression).
