Angela Merkel described the current situation in Germany caused by COVID-19 as “the gravest crisis since World War II.” Her words summed up the feelings of many Germans. Social isolation and fear of falling ill are not the only things on people's minds. Their main worry is uncertainty. Who will lose their job and their livelihood? Will social contact be maintained then? If I'm unemployed, will I be the same person I was before? Fear of the future can cause illness: and this can start more quickly and last longer than most people expect.

Germans are fearful for the future

As 2019 gave way to 2020, half of all Germans were extremely optimistic about the year ahead according to a survey 1 by the renowned Allensbach Institute in Germany. Just under three months later, this optimism has evaporated: Only 24% of respondents have no worries about the future. Three quarters are very concerned about the economic collateral damage. An IPSOS survey shows that 2/3 of the UK population is struggling to stay positive about the future 2 . The quarantine situation is making matters worse in all countries. People are lonely, have time to worry even more, and soon become consumed by anxiety.

What happens in the event of long-term anxiety and constant worry?

Anxiety actually has a positive function, too. It warns against danger and prepares the body for a response: fight or flight. To this end, stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin are released in the body, and other functions such as digestion are shut down. However, anxiety is not meant to be a constant state. As a result of the physiological responses to anxiety and stress, hormone levels are reduced, the body calms down, and stress goes back down to a normal level. It is dangerous if there is no physical response or if obsessive thinking keep stress levels high. Along with exhaustion, constant stress also causes organic diseases such as high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes 3 , 4 . If neuroendocrine and immunological adaptation reactions to stress persist for a long time, they also disturb the body's chemical balance due to oxidative stress. In addition to increased blood pressure and a weakened immune defense, the possible consequences of stress include vegetative dystonias. These are manifested by persistent nervousness and internal restlessness, often accompanied by physical complaints. Those affected suffer from tachycardia, headaches, tension, or gastrointestinal symptoms.

How can people cope with anxiety?

Anxiety is an emotion and is not rational. However, it can be controlled to a certain extent. It is important that people try to stay calm in times that are dominated by worry and a perceived loss of control over their own future. Many people worrying and fretting will not make the situation itself any better. On the contrary. Nobody under constant stress is able to think clearly or manage to find something positive in a situation not of their own making. Along with breathing exercises, meditation, and exercise, naturopathic medicines can also help people to relax, sleep well again, and thus clear their head to turn the stressful situation to their advantage if possible.
