Survival

Survival

Over the years, surrounded with the usual day-to-day problems of life, everyone thought, could we survive this or could we survive that.

Then those problems would pass and we shifted to the next set of problems, thinking them to be life-altering.

However, those could be addressed as struggles, but they never really were life-altering.

What is life-altering?

This.

What we are currently facing.

The coronavirus crisis.

This is something that the majority of the population has seen for the first time, we have never seen a lockdown like this before too.

This is all about survival now.

If we can survive this, then we can survive anything in life ahead.

Everything in the future will then be compared to this crisis, if we survived this, then is that problem even relevant to us!?

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.

This time will not come again!

This time will not come again!

I understand that this is a uncertain time, we’re facing an invisible enemy, lives are at stake.

I understand the fact that a lot of brave people from different sectors have put themselves at risk out there, in order to keep us safe.

I understand that a lot of people are working from home.

Today’s post is for those who are at home and aren’t able to work from home, due to various reasons and even for those working from home, who are able to get some extra time than usual.

This time will not come again!

Hear me out!

One, we obviously hope that such a time doesn’t come again, because technically it’s not a good time, and we all know that!

At the same time…

Never before has anyone got so much time in abundance, in their hands, ever, that they could use this to an advantage.

Advantage, how?

Well, you’ve always taken the time to work, to socialize, to relax, to watch a movie, but never for your self-care.

It was always brought down to, “I don’t have time for this”.

However, there are no excuses now.

You’ve all the time you need, to work on your inner peace, to work on your mindset, to work on your thoughts, to work on your habits, to work on your voice.

(If you want to know what do I mean by voice, hit me up on my Instagram – @rth24)

Why would you want to waste this time and not use it to your advantage?

A life-changing advantage?

People crave for this time, people are not able to get out of their day-to-day lives for this time, but you have it.

I can only bring this awareness to you, the choice is always up to you, the choice to change for the better, is always up to you. I, of course cannot force it up on you, but at least I can make you aware of it.

This time will not come again!

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.
