“This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
A situation crisis like a lockdown can be a difficult and complex time, as nobody has experienced it earlier. However, we all can manage our time and effectively utilize it to make our day productive, and stay positive in these difficult times.
We at FHPL share a few ways to use and manage time effectively during this stay at home span-
- Plan your day:
It is not all work and study. It is important that you plan your day and include other activities like rest breaks, exercise and time to socialize. Throughout this period, every day represents a new challenge. If you plan them effectively, not only will they pass by more quickly, but you will also take better advantage of them.
- Spend quality time with family:
When you are presented with the opportunity to stay at home 24/7, you can make it enjoyable with family members around you. Try to involve yourself as much as you can with family discussions. If you are someone, who seldom spends a significant part of your time at home, it is a perfect chance to make it up with family now.
- Learn New Career skills:
In present times the channels of exploring and learning new skills are numerous. You can take up a course which you would be interested in from the comfort of your home.
Reading books helps you expand your knowledge. It expands your intellectual ability and multiplies your wisdom. The more you read, the more your perception gets clearer and helps you have a better perspective.
- Watch movies and play indoor games:
It’s a great way to get entertained during the quarantine days by watching TV shows, good movies, and playing games like chess, ludo, card games, carom, etc. Make family members your team partners and opponents and accumulate some unforgettable moments. By playing games, you will get to spend some quality time with your family members and create enchanted scenarios. These games are quite exciting and positively influence the mind.
- Yoga and exercise:
In the course of this, lockdown try to keep yourself as much fit as possible. Do an hour of exercise and yoga every day in the morning. It will improve your immunity and make your body less susceptible to the Coronavirus. This would help you achieve a positive physical and mental well-being.
- Learn to disconnect:
Unplugging from the Internet at home can sometimes be hard, but you need to know when you are starting and finishing your daily tasks. This is the only way to prevent saturation and frustration, enabling you to keep working through your everyday routines with strength and motivation.
Maintain a positive attitude:
Last but not least, it is essential to maintain a positive attitude, focusing on the here and now, and what motivates you to keep moving forward in your day-to-day life. This is sure to be a complex period, but these are the challenges that define us as people, so take heart and keep moving onwards. When you think positively you can get many new opportunities in life under any circumstances.
