Depressed or Bored?
As human beings, we are social creatures. Isolation is not normal and has undoubtedly impacted mental health on a global level. Most would probably agree that the official word of 2020 would be “unprecedented,” and 2021 does not feel any more normal. Quarantine and COVID-19 have forced the world to slow down—to pause—which is not always comfortable. Sitting with our own thoughts, surrounded by fewer distractions, makes it harder to decipher whether we are depressed or just plain old bored.
It feels like the pandemic has put life on hold for everyone, leaving us trying to fill the void of boredom with activities from which to source meaning. However, these activities could serve as a placeholder to keep us busy and distract us from the reality of our emotions and mental health. We find ourselves in an endless cycle of Netflix marathons, baking bread, Zoom meetings, endless scrolling on social media, and in a constant state of thinking, “What am I going to have for dinner? ” Staring at the same four walls for just about a year at this point has left many people feeling uninspired, unmotivated, and…depressed. Or bored. Or both.
During this time it may be really hard to decipher whether you may be suffering from clinical depression or if what you are feeling is temporary or circumstantial. Some key symptoms of depression are trouble concentrating, fatigue, feelings of guilt, worthlessness, pessimism, helplessness, insomnia, irritability, restlessness, loss of interest in things that used to be pleasurable, overeating or loss of appetite and persistent feelings of sadness or anxiety. In clinical depression, these symptoms are not fleeting: they are persistent over the course of a few weeks, and disruptive to everyday life.
If you are simply feeling uninspired and just looking for an extra mental health boost, IV hydration therapy could be a good option for you. It can help with hydration, energy levels, hormonal balance, stress relief, and developing a stronger immune system. Tahoe Ketamine offers IV hydration therapy in South Lake Tahoe, CA.
