Is there a way to remedy this situation and start feeling better? What could you possibly do to reduce your stress levels and find a purpose in your life? Introspection is a great way to find a solution at the time of a crisis.

Parking in the effort to reduce the suffering of others is said to have a positive effect on the human brain. At a time when everyone is worried and paranoid about the pandemic, every little action helps.
