People are getting obese, some mentally disturbed and still others suffer from domestic violence, suicides, not to mention about job losses and high unemployment among the general population. It is alarming trend of life and livelihoods in disarray.
This alarming trend in Europe didn’t spare my own family too. My daughters in London, UK, now look like thick round dolls, putting on weight that is threatening their personal health and wellbeing. Since there were no live class-room lessons to go and attend, they are stuck uncomfortably at home. Unfortunately, their coping mechanism against frustration and depression becomes overeating, causing them severe obesity. This is a serious social and health problem in the UK and other countries of Europe the authorities cannot ignore.
The secret in maintaining weight is to eat three times a day in moderation, preferably at same time, but never eating after 7 in the evening. Better go to bed hungry after 7 than eat before sleep.
How to alleviate the suffering of the people under lockdown? There must be task forces established to study the issue for alternative approaches to total lockdown. So far the damage done to people under it is immense.
