What Is The Outcome of Enforced Isolation?

Cabin Fever in the Midst of Social Distancing

Believe it or not, this will become the next health concern we will need to deal with, especially if it goes on for the next 2 weeks to 4 weeks, definitely if it is enforced for longer.  No one knows how long the world problem is going to be around.  All the “authorities” have their perspective and even with the help of scientists, all of it is uncharted territory and we all need to plan for success, not idly sit back and wait for some sort of “bail out.” 

What Happens When One Is Confined For Extended Periods?

The health of the individual will begin to fail.  For the elderly people, this is more of a concern then it is for the young.  True, we all have access to our devices, our phones, I-pads, computers, television, NetFlix, etc., and human beings require interacting with other human beings. 

And what we will begin to find is we need to connect with others.  We need the physical touch of another (many others) in our lives.  We are social beings and need to be able to reach out and hug each other, shake hands and demonstrate our connectivity.  Yes, group chats, Skype, video conferencing are helpful.  But it does not replace the required social interaction of being face to face.  We all take it for granted. 

What this leads to is psychological and mental health imbalances, which eventually manifest in physical conditions.  This “new” health problem will be bigger than and add to the current Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affecting many.  What will be recommended by the "powers that be" and the media are more pharmaceuticals for more people, which will only add to the side-effects and the addictions and other costs associated with poorly addressing the resulting imbalances being created.

What Do WE As A Society Need To Do To Prevent This From Happening?

We need to get back to being able to socialize with each other.  We need to take the time to call one another; to face-time with one another; e-mail one another.  Facebook actually has some benefits right now, as long as people are using it to stay connected, stay light and share some humor.  If they are sharing doom and gloom, this is the wrong information and will lead to increasing people’s stress.

All of this will help.  But we still need to have the physical interaction.  So here is my advice during Social Isolation. 

If you are cooped up with your family and there are more than 2 of you, or especially if you live alone:

  • Set up time every day to add something new to your interaction. You want to vary things so as not to get into a “Cabin-Fever” situation. 
  • It is OK and actually healthy for you to get outside every day. Get some sun and create the best opportunity to generate some vitamin D.  Vitamin D is the most important vitamin for maintaining proper health.  It supports proper Immune Health, Musculoskeletal Health, Hormonal Health and a sense of well-being.  That is why GOD made it free…you simply have to go outside and expose yourself to this Free Vitamin.
  • Go for a walk in nature, especially where there are plenty of trees and other plants. Trees recycle the air we breathe.  They make more oxygen for all of us.  Getting a fresh batch of that every day, from the source, will be excellent for your health and well-being.  There is a shortage of ventilators for the people with respiratory conditions.  You don’t want to create one for yourself by breathing the same stale air everyday by staying inside. 
  • If you are physically challenged and are confined to a wheel chair or some other restriction, have someone come and take you outside for a spell. It will help you and will help them to get outside.  It will be good for you, both physically and mentally to get outside and see some nature.  Maybe it requires a car ride.  So what!  You have the time; you have the space.  

Let’s take advantage of the time to reconnect with yourself, your spirit, your ability to stay grounded and connected to Source Energy.

If you are able to do this for yourself and your loved ones, when the time of “Social Distancing” and “Enforced Quarantine” have passed, you will be much more balanced and mentally prepared to continue on in your life.  There will be new changes that will have been created as a consequence of this Universal Problem we are all facing now. 

Planning for your tomorrow and being proactive is ALWAYS better than waiting for someone to tell you what to do. 

Stay Well, Stay Happy and Stay Compassionate;


Continually Yours to Health, Naturally;
