A Lost Opportunity!

A Lost Opportunity!

If we don’t take away anything valuable or anything life-changing out of this current situation, isn’t this a lost opportunity then?

For everyone, of all age groups, we are all in the same situation, facing the same crisis, however, we’re facing something like this for the first time ever, in our lifetime.

In some form or another, there has to be some takeaway from this.

It could be, with regards, to your personal life, to your work, to your habits, to your mental and physical health or probably, from the entire viewpoint of life.

There is a chance here to build upon that takeaway you have taken from this situation, and see where that thought process takes you.

It could lead to something new in your life, that’s the lost opportunity you shouldn’t miss out on.

Are you alright?

Are you alright?

How are you feeling during this lock-down?

Are you feeling alright? Are you stressed out? Are you feeling anxious?

Are you sharing your feelings with anyone, at this time?

If you’re alright, then I’d like you to reach out to others and find out if they are.

Communicating more and more at this time is really helpful for anyone and everyone. The more you communicate, the better it becomes for the other person.

If you’re feeling anxious, stressed or worried, one, it’s perfectly okay to feel this way. Second, communicate and reach out to your loved ones. Once you open up and share your feelings, there’s a load off your shoulders and you start feeling better in due time.

More importantly, what I want everyone to know is, we’re all in this together.

And we’ll come out of it together too.

Take it One Day at a Time!

Take it One Day at a Time!

We don’t know how long will this go on, we don’t know when the lockdown will end and we don’t know what will happen even when it ends and until we don’t get the vaccine?

However, thinking about all of this may make anyone anxious.

What every single one of us can do is,

Take it One Day at a Time!

That’s the easiest way to deal with this and not feel anxious and focus on being safe.

House Chores!

House Chores!

Everyone who’s isolated at home is playing some role when it comes to the house chores, right?

Whether you were already doing it, or are doing it now, every member of the house has taken up the mantle of doing something or the other – so there’s no pressure on any one member (whether in case of family or with friends, it applies if you’re staying with multiple people)

During these times, I’ve taken up the responsibility of cleaning the house (i.e. brooming and mopping of floors), sometimes I play the role of a sous-chef and cooked something, a couple of times.

However, here’s what I wanted to entail through today’s post!

I’m not sure if I am the only one, but since cleaning is on me, I’ve become a tad-bit more mindful when it comes to living day-by-day.

Here’s what that means?

Earlier, I knew the house will be cleaned at some point of time, during the day and even I drop/ leave something on the floor, it’ll be cleaned up after.

Now I’m more mindful that I don’t dirty the house anyhow, and that has also shifted to the other works at home, for eg. with utensils etc.

Plus, on top of that, I’ve started to enjoy the work, it feels like I’m doing something for my home, not to forget the body workout which happens, everything counts.

Have you felt this too or am I the only one?

You have a Responsibility right now!

You have a Responsibility right now!

I’ve been reading on social media, I’ve been reading the news reports here and there and I have been talking to people and you know what I’m noticing – people aren’t taking the self-isolation and social distancing seriously.

There’s this thought that goes around – that even though I’m outside, I’m taking precautions and people are standing at a distance. It doesn’t work that way though! (You should only go out, unless absolutely necessary)

You don’t know who the others have met or where have they been; it is your responsibility to follow the lock-down and stay away from everyone as much as possible.

You have a responsibility to not only take care of your own health, but also the health of your family. You going out could make you a carrier, even though you might not feel any symptoms and that could have an effect on the others (family) around you!

You have a responsibility to keep everyone safe, simply by staying home, that’s it.

If you’re reading this, please stay at home, please follow the rules, please stay isolated and distance yourself from others.
