Combatting Pandemic-Induced Compression
The news that is 24/7 is designed to tease you into watching and keep watching. Scary news gets our attention quickly, it’s like candy for our brain, inducing fear. Some become hyper-vigilant and keep watching, strengthening the harmful cycle. One might ask, can you even trust the news as accurate and true? This constant compression for many ultimately leads to agitation, restlessness, depression, and anger.
Daily fear-laden news is contributing to the compression on our brains, fear activates the amygdala that integrates with our hippocampus and causes changes in our limbic system. The limbic system helps control emotions and memory, it regulates autonomic and endocrine function in response to emotional stimuli. The limbic system depression causes sadness, anger, hopelessness, repetitive negative thinking, etc.
