Why am I still stressed?

Stresscartoon_main

Everything is fine now, right? We are through the worst of this tragic and painful pandemic, and many aspects of life are returning to something closer to normal. Shouldn’t this be the time we all heave a sigh of relief?

If this is the case, why do so many of us feel uneasy still? This could be the facts: Covid-19 levels are still high and there is a lot of uncertainty about how the winter will be. Or it could be because we seem to have been expected to make a rather rapid transition back from our newly learned cautious ways. You might have been called back to your workplace or may be expected to travel on crowded public transport again or take part in group activities. And some of this may freak you out.

Any of these things and many other aspects of the current ‘gear change’ could make you feel stressed. But you may also feel ‘survivors’ guilt’. With so many families having experienced loss and serious illness, if you are one of the lucky ones who has been ok, you may be telling yourself ‘What’s wrong with you? What have you got to complain about?’. But this negative self-talk doesn’t help you and can make you feel even more stressed.

So, you need something to break the downward spiral. In Stress awareness week, we wanted to remind you about Result CIC’s free resources which can help you:
