There’s definitely something wrong in my chest. Not metaphorically linking the problems of this life to my chest. I have been feeling a weird sensation in the chest ever since I started to stay at home, 23rd March. It’s been 18-19 days of time. And, I don’t know if this is related to the COVID-19 or the extreme temperatures. I feel scared anyhow. But, many tell not to be scared because apparently that’s what is necessary. I am not scared (to be precise), that is just the first encounter I feel when I pay attention to these sensations. If I panicked later, that would be feeling scared. I feel a little lightheaded. I meditate, I don’t know if it is because of that particularly. Clearly, I tend to be anxious about this disease which could stand a chance to be nowhere close to me. I, however, have learned from meditation that feeling anxious is a normal behaviour. Dwelling on these thoughts have no benefits to me. Plus, I am also not looking for benefits all the time.

I do feel calm in all this chaos the outbreak has caused. Only hoping the storm won’t hit me.

  1. I totally understand. I’ve been feeling anxious ever since this lockdown has started. It’s this weird feeling something I try not to dwell upon but it’s always there. I try to keep myself busy through the day but at night before sleeping the feeling is the worst.
