My Cache of Positives from the Lockdown

My Cache of Positives from the Lockdown

I share My Cache of Positives from the Lockdown. Have you heard of the adage ‘there is good in every evil’? What positive will come out of this pandemic? Equality! This pandemic has shown us that we are all the same irrespective of our religion, culture, customs, whether we are poor or rich. Anyone can get the Virus! Unknowingly, it connected us in a way, it made us realise that we should all stick together. We as humans are going through extraordinary times.

Lockdown or time for Self-Discovery?

What’s going on currently is unprecedented and all of us are having to adapt our lives and mind-sets to cope. Covid 19 has brought about a pandemic of anxiety and depression in the whole world. Never in the memorable past, have we faced such a situation where whole countries are under lockdown. We’re all in difficult, unsettling times. Most of us are sad, afraid, bored, anxious, lonely; all classic cases of crisis to our mental health. Now that we know that the lockdown or self-imposed isolation is going to continue for an indefinite period. It is time we make peace with the situation and work on it. I have taken this time to share positive vibes that have come out of a fairly negative global situation.

There is no magic pill to tide us over the pandemic, anxiety or mental pressures associated with it. It’s been months of lockdown. Living alone and being a chronically depressed person, I would have been a classic research case of a mental illness specimen. However, for the first time in 16 years, I feel restored and rejuvenated.

And as Paulo Coelho claimed- “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

”My son was home on vacation till March 18th. We had three weeks of frenetic family time. I was dreading the time they were to leave and on the D day, my grandson developed a fever. Airports were checking temperatures by then and they postponed their return. Then lockdown happened and they were here till July 8th; (Psst…The universe responded!) I was in total G ma mode, basking in the warmth of my grandsons’ love.

Blogchatter to the rescue!

April is the month of madness with the #BlogchatterA2ZChallenge and I had a legitimate excuse to give it a miss this year. But then, I never back out of a challenge and dived headlong. Believe me, it wasn’t easy juggling two hyperactive kids and daily blogging for a month. I did it all and with aplomb! It is October now and it is #MyFriendAlexa time. Another month of flurried activities and the best way to steer away from negativity.

Pandemic Has brought on anxiety and Depression

What’s going on currently is unprecedented and all of us are having to adapt our lives and mind-sets to cope. COVID 19 has brought about a pandemic of anxiety and depression in the whole world. Never in the memorable past, have we faced such a situation where whole countries are under lockdown. We’re all in difficult, unsettling times. Most of us are gloomy, afraid, bored, anxious, lonely; all classic cases of crisis to our mental health.

Now that we know that the lockdown or self-imposed isolation is going to continue for an indefinite period. It is time we make peace with the situation and work on it. I have taken this time to share positive vibes that have come out of a fairly negative global situation. And personally express the polarity between my solitude and depression at one end and full house and a great deal of action on the other.

Gratitude and being Positive

One of the most significant things I’ve learned during this time is to take care of myself and to devote more time to a healthier me. We have to be grateful and appreciate what we have. Remember the fact that there are people in the world with much less. Be happy and positive for everything around you. This will make you become a stronger person.

We were all so cocky about everything, heartless about our environment, irresponsibly looting from the Earth that nurtured us, unappreciative for the love that surrounds us, isolating ourselves from fellow humans. In one hard blow, a virus brought us to our knees.

Look around now; the Earth heals herself as pollution diminishes; birds tweet to their heart’s content, deer and even elephants salvage their land as we stay locked away

Just trust in the present; here and now; the whole shebang can change in minutes! So, do not take experiences and life for granted.

My Cache of Positives from the Lockdown | Family Bonding and Me time

Cherish life more – learn to value the small things — bonding with family and friends often gets neglected in everyday life.

As I always say, “Every cloud has a silver lining” – we have ample time to ourselves. Use it time as best as you can. Take pleasure in just lazing; sometimes by just doing nothing. It is bonus time to cultivate hobbies, interests and passions.

At the end of the day, the only things that matter are good health and the lovingness of dear ones! This is the wisdom of ages but we are realising it now.
