Abstract
The Covid-19 pandemic globally made people suffer from depression which lead to massive
anhedonia. anhedonia is potentially associated with the feeling that one does not belong to any group (social
anhedonia) and loss of interest in people, and this feeling may lead to social isolation (SI) and ultimately
increase depressive symptoms and suicidal ideation (Winer, Nadorff, et al., 2014). Numerous studies have
revealed that anhedonia is a negative factor for suicidality (Gard et al., 2006; Winer, Nadorff, et al., 2014; Yan
et al., 2012). The World Health Organization (WHO) (2018) estimated that approximately 57 million
individuals experienced depressive disorders in India. Untreated depression can result in serious consequences
such as suicide (Cukrowicz et al., 2011; Farabaugh et al., 2012). One of the most common psychiatric disorders
consistently associated with suicide among adults is depression (Cukrowicz, Ekblad, Cheavens, Rosenthal, &
Lynch, 2008).
Anhedonia is associated with negative emotions, loss of energy, social withdrawal, decreased pleasure in social
situations, decreased response to environmental stimuli, impaired emotional regulation, and a lack of close
friends and intimate relationships (Smith et al., 2012; Winer et al., 2015; Winer, Nadorff, et al., 2014).The
adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are becoming frighteningly evident across the globe. The
psychological toll of this health crisis may be worsening as the number of deaths, mass unemployment, and
quarantine measures continue to rise at alarming rates.
Hence, the paper examines various associatins such as Positive Emotions(PE )and Emotional Balance (EB)
among the public in order to subside the psychological anxieties and disorders such as anhedonia and social
isolation SI. As per the statistics the Positive Emotions PE have shown to attenuate, where the negative effect
reaction to stress (Fredrickson & Levenson, 1998; Tugade & Fredrickson, 2004).
