Cabin Fever

People are going stir-crazy nowadays. Many of us have been compelled to stay indoors for nearly three months now. Initially, we enjoyed the experience. But, after a while, we started to get restless. Some of us got irritated. Children were also forced to stay indoors and many of them generated a feeling of restlessness or depression because of this prolonged confinement. But if the problem with COVID-19 continues, we’ll need to learn how to cope with people going stir-crazy.
