Social media which has become a routine of the community now presents a lot of information about COVID-19. Unfortunately, not all information there is correct.
Therefore, it is strongly recommended that everyone wants to re-check the facts of the information disseminated. Do not let this information make you parno excessive and ultimately stressful.
Mobile phones that are currently difficult to separate from humans are in fact giving a bad impact in the form of stress and excessive fear. This was stated by an expert named Dr. Nnacy Cheever from California State University, Dominguez Hills.
“Too much time spent with a cell phone allows one to feel excessive stress and anxiety,” he said according to an ABC News report. So, it can be said that the longer he holds the cellphone, the higher the level of naivety that will be felt.
This is also what the wife of Bogor Mayor Bima Arya tries to agree with, Yane Ardian. He limited the hours of use of her husband’s cellphone, including viewing social media because it could affect health conditions while undergoing treatment for COVID-19 infection.
He admitted that this effort had a good impact. When her husband focused on health, his body condition was much better. Because it is very important to limit cell phones during the COVID-19 pandemic as it is today.
Keparnoan which may arise due to consuming too much COVID-19 information on social media can be prevented one of them by reducing the use of mobile phones. Professional Psychologist Ade Iva Wicaksono confirmed this.
“I think the effort to reduce cell phones while undergoing medical treatment is very important and correct,” he told Okezone, some time ago.
When someone is not exposed to a lot of information about COVID-19 and he feels calm, then continue. This will certainly make you focus on healing and not excessive.
