If you regularly check a social media website, chances are that over the past week or two, you’ve seen an attention grabbing headline such as this: “CDC Quietly Adjusts COVID-19 Cause of Death Numbers to a Mere Six Percent!” This kind of click-bait journalism (if so worthy a word can be used to describe many of these articles) is nothing new. However, in an anxiety-heightened cultural climate, such as that brought about by a global pandemic, these types of headlines are nothing short of misleading and — quite possibly — harmful to readers.
You may have noticed the effects of this back-and-forth information onslaught on your own life over the past few months. If you’re not sure, take a moment to do a quick self-evaluation. In the past six months, have you:
- noticed feelings of depression or anxiety
- had more aches and pains than usual
- struggled to fall asleep or stay asleep
- experienced indigestion or skin rashes
- had trouble remembering something or staying focused
- gained a few pounds
Believe it or not, every single one of these issues can be triggered by an excess of stress. Cortisol, the body’s stress hormone, is extremely useful when communicating with our adrenal glands in order to get us out of danger. If you’ve ever seen a snake while out hiking, you know exactly how this “fight or flight” hormone is supposed to work! A quick shot of adrenaline to our system, and our body is ready to skedaddle away from that snake!
The stress hormone can be life saving in certain scenarios. But that same hormone can be a detriment to our health when we find ourselves chronically exposed to a stress-triggering environment, such as our current world health situation puts us all at risk for experiencing. The back-and-forth game that “clickbait” headlines want you to play is nothing short of bad for your mind and body!
Are you currently overseeing the reopening of a business, educational facility, financial institution, office building, church, or financial institution? No doubt you are feeling the stress of the onslaught of information, especially when so-called “new” information hits the headlines and you begin second guessing your reopening plan, especially in regards to sanitizing.
