Lockdowns to avoid infection with COVID-19 are basically a reasonable physical decision. With the mental disadvantage of, e.g., cutting down personal freedom. Still, there are also mental benefits involved which we may not want to overlook for our health and life. Scientifically verified. Read on to learn more about.
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
Our planet the Earth has been created as an ecologic-biologic phenomenon, strictly based on natural laws. So is any living species on this globe as well. This implies that whatever our lifestyle factors are, they have an impact not only on our physical well-being but on our mental condition likewise.
As an example, take the consequences of current Covid-19 pandemic. To save our health and lives, public policy is ordering in some countries and areas – inter alia – lockdowns. To avoid or at least minimize the danger of infections.
However, as pointed out, any physical lifestyle adjustment comes with a mental impact as well. The current COVID-19 lockdown policy being no exception.
In order to dig profoundly in the mental capacity of the public with respect to Covid-19 lockdowns, scientists at the University of Bath in Bath, UK, and the University of Lisbon in Portugal’s capital started a respective meta-analysis. With special reference to caregivers responsible for children aged 9-16, many of them currently on homeschooling.
Their scientific perceptions so far:
Basically, almost 90% of prospects affirmed the lockdowns being a benefit. In line with its slower and more quiet pace of life. Offering quite some advantages not only for physical but also for mental life quality.
With special reference to
- Less stressful life.
- Better relationships within the family and better mutual
understanding between family members.
- Better understanding children’s lives.
- Reassessment of personal values about which are, and which
not, important for their own life and that of their family.
Especially beyond material values.
- Stronger feeling of ‘community’ with others.
- Better work-life balance.
- Discovery of new possibilities/opportunities in life.
According to these results, the responsible scientists concluded that this was related to a better mental well-being of those who came to these conclusions.
IN A NUTSHELL
Lockdowns to diminish social contacts in order to avoid infection with COVID-19 are basically a reasonable physical decision. Although cutting down personal freedom. However, there are still mental benefits involved which we may not want to overlook for the benefit of our health and life. Scientifically verified.
Even if the public lockdown is lifted, you may consider a modest private version in your & your family’s best mental interest for health and life.
