2020 is the year of Coviditis

Do you have coviditis?

An '-itis' is a disease and an inflammation.

Yes - it's 2020 - and for most of you Covid has caused you a dis-ease.

I'm speaking metaphorically here (whilst I acknowledge the many who have been infected with Covid-19, there are many who haven't but you are still affected and suffering the dis-ease)

You are all fighting this dis-ease. And it has caused an inflammation.

An 'inflammation' refers to your body's process of fighting against things that harm it, such as infections, injuries, and toxins, in an attempt to heal itself.

Have you considered your body's process of 'fighting' this perceived harm?

How does it affect you?

If you break it down and take a look at how it is really affecting you, you can begin to be proactive.

Real - There are some very real aspects of Covid causing major effects on our lives. For example job loses, and financial issues.

Perceived - There are many perceived aspects where we feel we have the lost control that we used to have. There are many changes to adjust to. eg working from home.

It has brought about change - are you fighting the change? How long will you continue to fight it. What is your process - are you aiming to adjust?

Benefits of overcoming it

When you leave something unattended it gets worse. It can fester. So rather than sit back and ignore it, it is best to be proactive. You need to address it while it is quite small.

How to overcome dis-ease

  1. Awareness and acknowledge, grieve what you have lost (even if temporarily)

  2. Investigate where you have lost real control vs perceived control

  3. Prevent overwhelm - look at each part separately. Focus on what you do have control over and adapt to those you don't.


Coviditis is a disease that has caused inflammation for many of us. Acknowledge this and address the real issues and the perceived issues. For help with this, contact Life Mentoring to beat the overwhelm.
