Letter from Italy: Treating the Virus with a Proper Time Perspective

This morning I read the tweet and blog post of Dr. Marc Wittman: “Letter from Italy: Treating the Virus with a Proper Time Perspective”. (The understanding of individual time psychology can help fight the pandemic) https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl/blog/sense-time/202003/letter-italy-treating-the-virus-proper-time-perspective

On his “Psychology Today” blog, Dr. Wittmann has posted a letter from his colleague Massimo Agnoletti, a Clinical Psychologist from Mestre, Italy, on how the coronavirus can be treated properly with the right time perspective.

Marc Wittmann is a Research Fellow at the Institute for Frontier Areas of Psychology and Mental Health, Freiburg, Germany and the author of 5 books on “TIME”.

Coincidence or not but I also have mentioned a few times the psychological effects in, for instance, the 3 minute video I posted two days ago. https://youtu.be/dgghDn-mUAo It is scary to see how this outbreak is effecting our thinking and thus behaviour… absorbing this avalanche of newsfeed is, seemingly, creating an out-of-balance behaviour by means of a stressy/forced brain activity. It almost sees as if we have slide into an odd form of survival mode.

However, I recommend you reading Dr. Wittmann’s blog post on the website of “Psychology Today” on the real effect(s) created by, among others, a psychological isolation. Indeed, our immune system has to deal with a second, invisible intruder!
