“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”

– Michelle Obama

It’s been almost two years since this  pandemic started. In all these months there have been so many changes in around us and worldwide that we’d never imagine. All that we could find was terrifying news and negativity all over. It’s easy to run over and over the topics that are stressing us out- be that the corona virus pandemic, climate change or something else. People have lost their loved ones, people are facing mental health issue due to this and the economic condition of the country is going for a toss. Essential and health service workers are over burdened with duties yet they aren’t stopping. We need to support them, we need to stay positive and the ray of hope needs to stay.  Connect with your family members, follow the social distancing norms and make your days productive. In times like these people find meditation  and mindfulness really peaceful.Sitting ideally at home would only remind you of the terrifying situation outside, instead try being constructive- learn a new skill, exercise for some time, connect with your family and friends through social media, read books or listen to some music. Utilize your time wisely.  Don’t let negativity ruin your day.  If it’s possible from your part then please try to contribute something to the society, this isn’t the time to be selfish. Indeed it’s a really difficult time for all of us but it’s our unity that matters. We”ll get over this soon, things will get back to normal. Let’s stand together and fight this!
