Epidemics and Pandemics aren't happening for the first time. We never remember any of them by the changes they brought about. Let Covid-19/Coronavirus change that narrative. Let this pandemic be known for moulding a generation of compassionate people who decided to change their lifestyles for the better. They learnt new skills, their eyes sparkled with kindness and they were the first of the many generations that came later, that looked inward for answers.
I am trying to be happy about the things I do for my pleasure and to not judge myself for just being. So before I go any further, I'd like to let you, my readers, know that if you haven't created or learnt anything during the lock-down, it is okay. You only have to make sure that you are content and happy. Here are some satisfying things I have been doing during the lock-down. The aim is to create, improve lifestyle and feel good about all of it:
Today, I spent a lot of time reading real life stories of last moments of people who died from Covid-19. When I began writing about 'The Life in the Time of coronavirus', this was one aspect I wanted to cover. Because if we have to understand and appreciate life, we need to take a glimpse at death, at least once in a while. The stories I am about to tell you - I insist that you read them - will definitely make you appreciate the people in your lives. And when you do, please give them a call and tell them that you love them.
The Covid-19 Virus is still like an out of syllabus exam paper given to the world. The threat isn't a bomb planted in unknown locations or enemy soldiers but one without a face whose nature is still unclear. We must have only understood a small percentage of how this virus works which is partly why a remedy hasn't been found yet and with time we are still picking up bits and pieces of how the virus works.
During Lock-down, either of the two have caused you pain; being with your loved ones or being away from them. Staying indoors with a bunch of people, with no escape has its own boons and banes. In this post, I have brushed on 6 Vital elements of our lives that contribute to 95% of our mental and physical well-being. For many of us, the Lock-down was a test of our connection with these elements. If you haven't considered this before, you may consider improving all or any of these aspects during the remainder of the lock-down
"It may sound insensitive when I tell you that I am enjoying my life. Like everyone else, I too am concerned about the virus engulfing the world, taking too many lives. But it's high time we stop being miserable. We need to accept what comes our way with grace."
Exercise, mental well being, time pass, brushing up skills, improving knowledge; we have covered so many useful Apps in this post and so trying out even one from this list will benefit you in one way or the other.
