Cabin Fever is Real

Many times we get too engrossed in life and don’t give much thought to real things affecting us. Cabin Fever, as I learnt, is one of those things. It represents a range of symptoms with varying degrees that result from long confinement or isolation indoors during the winter.

Simple irritation to chronic paranoia and more could become adverse conditions if not addressed in time. I believe most of us don’t pay attention to this fact due to lack of awareness. In my opinion, each and everyone should be informed about the causes and measures to prevent the same through educational learning.

I first handed experienced the direct affects of being inside and unable to do a bunch. From feeling unmotivated to getting agitated with little things were my usual indicators of having cabin fever. Somedays it gets extremely exhausting to even get out of bed. And I had been obliviously enough to find fault in myself for each time I just felt “meh”.

However, staying sane takes a little work. Occupying yourself with chores and lists of things to do doesn’t seem to fly either. Being specific about the activity you chose, and knowing the conscious affect of it on you will help along way. For instance, reading a book is too vague, reading ‘Anamika’ (a book that uplifts my mood right away) for a while to distress would be more beneficial.

Hope this got your attention! Working on our coping strategy is the best thing to do.
