In a recent article “Managing Fears and Anxiety about Coronavirus”, Harvard University recommends the practice of Mindfulness, also known as Full Attention in Brazil, to manage and deal with the challenges generated by the global situation. Chronic stress can overwhelm our immune system and cause anxiety, depression and sleep disorders.
Mindfulness practice improves well-being and helps regulate the emotional center of the brain, avoiding the stress produced by excessive exposure to the news about the epidemic and which can lead to the development of acute or chronic stress. When the mind is focused on the present, the rational part of the brain is involved. This can help to understand the news and understand its impact on the emotional state of each one, allowing to make decisions from a location of facts versus panic. Scientific studies show the positive impact of regular mindfulness practice in reducing stress, anxiety, insomnia, in addition to generating better well-being, increasing immunity and developing greater emotional intelligence.
Emi Shimma, a psychologist at the STD / AIDS-SP Reference and Training Center, contracted COVID-19, says that her biggest challenge was dealing with the unpredictability of the virus. “At the onset of symptoms, the diagnosis is not always reliable, and it is not possible to predict the outcome of the situation. Mindfulness was an extremely important resource in this context, especially during the period of uncertainty. Mindfulness practices kept me in touch with sensations present in the body, thoughts and feelings, moment by moment. Thanks to mindfulness, I was able to clearly assess situations of risk and urgency. Mindfulness was fundamental for the management of stress: recognizing fears, letting go of unnecessary worries, keep calm in the midst of uncertainty. “
