  • Hello and welcome to The English We Speak with me, Feifei

  • and me, Roy.

  • We may sound a little differentthat's

  • because we are not able to record in our normal

  • studios during the coronavirus outbreak. There has

  • been a lot of discussion about self-isolation

  • and staying at home, and in this programme we have an

  • expression to talk about the stress

  • you may feel in that situation.

  • That's right Feifei. Today, we're going

  • to talk about 'cabin fever'.

  • Cabin fever is the reaction to feeling

  • trapped or isolated in a building for too long.

  • It can be really stressful. This expression

  • probably comes from people being trapped and

  • not able to leave a small wooden house known

  • as a cabin. The may not have been able to

  • leave due to extreme weather conditions like

  • a snowstorm, as these buildings are often

  • found on mountains or hills.

  • People can become sad, restless and even lack

  • concentration. They may also get food cravings,

  • which in turn may lead to weight changes.

  • That's right. It's a really serious thing,

  • and it can cause you to suffer from anxiety.

  • Which is why we're going to tell you some

  • things that experts say you can do to help

  • you cope with cabin fever.

  • Yes, we'll let you know right after these

  • examples using the words 'cabin fever'.

  • I started to suffer from cabin fever after

  • I was stuck at home for two weeks.

  • Some scientists think that cabin fever is

  • linked to the feeling of claustrophobiathe

  • fear of being in closed places.

  • He said he felt really anxious and that he

  • was suffering from cabin fever after not being

  • able to leave his house.

  • He also said he had gained weight.

  • This is The English We Speak from BBC Learning

  • English and we're talking about the expression

  • 'cabin fever', which is the feeling of

  • stress from isolation that some people experience

  • when they stay in a building for an extended time.

  • But apparently there are some ways that you

  • can cope if you're suffering from cabin

  • fever, aren't there Feifei?

  • That's right. One of the first things they

  • say to do is to set regular meal times, so

  • kind of like a routinemuch like you would

  • have if you were going to work.

  • Yes, this helps regularity and limits binge

  • eating and weight issues. Also, it's important

  • to try and stimulate your mind.

  • Things like television are OK for distraction,

  • but they don't overly stimulate you.

  • Something like reading a book may be more interesting

  • and keep your mind active.

  • Yes, and doing things like puzzles or crosswords

  • can also help. I really enjoy doing quizzes online.

  • Also, you should make sure your friends and families

  • are coping if they are in the same situation.

  • Absolutely. A phone call to someone to check

  • on them may really help them, and you can

  • also give them the same advice we're giving

  • you now. Finally, it's important to set

  • goals. Try to achieve things in your day to

  • keep you focussed. You could even make weekly

  • goals depending on how long your isolation will be for.

  • Hey, why not try writing a book?

  • That's an idea. Bye, Roy.

  • Bye.
