How to Stay POSITIVE during QUARANTINE? 5 Ways to Stay Positive

Hello readers, I hope that you and your family is safe and in good health. We all never expected such a situation in lifetime but this is the reality which all of us have to face and deal with. But remember that each one of us have to STAY POSITIVE DURING QUARANTINE. As more than half of the countries, around the world, have declared lock down, so it is our duty to follow that. We, Indians, are living Quarantine life (Total lockdown) since 24th March to fight against the ill effects of COVID-19 and stay safe inside. It is also important to stay Positive during Quarantine and have hope that everything would be back to normal.
How to Stay POSITIVE during QUARANTINE? 5 Ways to Stay Positive

While few of you would be tensed, worried or depressed there are other people who still have faith in God and have not lost hope. In this article, I would talk about 5 ways to stay Positive during Quarantine. So, keep a smile of hope on your face, God's faith in your heart and read on the article.

1. Limit your Interaction with Social Media

I am sure that many of you would scroll through social media to pass your time, but is it right? Well, you should limit your interaction with social media because under the current situation our mind needs rest. If you keep scrolling through social media for the entire day then it is likely that your mind would not be calm while you go for sleep. Excess screen time also effects your eyes and skin (bad radiation). So, limit the time for social media so that you can calm your mind and soul. Also don't watch news about the pandemic situation for long as it also effects your mind. Stay updated with the current situation and facts but don't let them rule your mind.

Tip : Take out time to close your eyes and relax for 15-20 minutes after every 3-4 hours. Also take deep breathe and listen to soothing music or religious gurbaani that calms your mind.

2. Revive Good, Old Memories

As your family is staying closer to you, so what would be a good time to revive old memories? Dig out old pictures, videos, albums, recordings and enjoy that with your family. You can mark my words watching memories is better than watching TV or other streaming platforms. This way, you can share different incidents which you might have not spoken about as we all get busy in every life. So, make the most of Quarantine Time and say your heart out because this time won't be back.

Tip : You can also create DIY crafts of such golden memories and make a special place in your room so that you can watch it every day and smile. Remember that giving time to your family is the best earning of everyone's life.

3. Meditate, Exercise or Perform Yoga to Stay Fit

While staying at home, physical activities have been reduced as we cannot go out so most of us tend to sit or lie down for long hours. This makes our body lazy, so it is necessary to take out at least 30 minutes every day to meditate, exercise or perform yoga and keep our body fit and healthy. Keeping our body fit also makes sure that our body functions rightly and decreases stress and tension. So, did you exercise today? No? Let's do it together after 30 minutes, what say?

Tip : You can watch certain YouTube videos and follow their exercise, meditation or yoga routine every day. This way you don't feel alone while working out and keep your body fit.

4. Cook, Serve and Eat Together

Have you ever heard that cooking is a stress buster? Well, few people love cooking as it is their hobby or passion while few others cook to calm their mind. So, this Quarantine life would definitely give you tension and worry for health as well as financial situation, so why not relieve the stress? Go to the kitchen and cook your favourite dish which you and your family would enjoy having together. This way, you would treat your family members as well as make some more good memories to cherish in future. Cooking food at home also keeps your body fit because you are having homemade food which is clean, healthy and delicious. So, it adds to your good heath.

Tip : Prepare anything that you like but present it in a different way to bring a cute smile on your family members and surprise them. I am sure, such small gesture would bring loved ones more closer.

5. Improve your Skills

All of us would have interest in one or more topics or career options, so during this lockdown why don't you improve your skills. I can understand that your mind would not be set to work or learn something new but believe me if you invest your time and mind in something useful then you won't be bored sitting at home. Learning a new skill or improving your current skill would help you to have better vision. You can excel in that field or skill and make use of it in future as well. I have joined photography online courses at Udemy (You can also check their website, they have slashed down the prices to let people learn something new during Quarantine).

Tip : You can also start a new hobby or passion which you always wanted to start or persue but couldn't do due to some reason. It is right time to indulge and bring out your creativity and passion.
