COVID-19 Pandemic and Our Love ones

COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many of us. You might feel like you're no longer in control of things. It is normal to feel sad, stressed, confused, scared or worried. People react in different ways. Some common feelings include:


A sense of being socially excluded or judged

Concern about your children's education and well-being

Fear of getting sick with COVID-19 or of making others sick

Worry about losing your job, not being able to work or finances

Fear of being apart from loved ones due to isolation or physical distancing

Helplessness, boredom, loneliness and depression due to isolation or physical distancing


At a time like this, it is important to focus on building connections with our loved ones. Hugging releases oxytocin in the brain, which is known as the "love hormone" that gives feelings of intimacy and helps stimulate the social connection between people. 

Hug the person right next to you (if the person is not sick)!
