After more than a year, it’s safe to say that the Covid-19 pandemic has taken a toll on our collective mental health. Changes in work schedule, loss of wages, and isolation have added anxiety for many families and according to new surveys, those pressures are being felt a little differently by men and women.
Among all adults, people are reporting their anxiety due to Covid-19 has had a negative impact on their lifestyle by sleeping less (36 percent), overeating (32 percent) and increasing substance and alcohol use (12 percent). However, a significant number of men say they are actually sleeping a healthy amount on average and have taken up new exercise regimens during lockdown. So, the long and short is: everyone is reacting differently.
One concern is how anxiety and these changes in lifestyle may have on self-esteem and its effect on sexual intimacy. In addition to feeling stress about the economy and the health of family and friends, many men have been forced into new roles as caregivers for parents and children who must learn remotely. Disruptions in household roles and schedule over a long period of time can lead to established behavior. In other words, depriving yourself of intimacy with your partner can become a habit.
