Tips for Keeping Sane during the Convid Crisis

Bored, Irritated and Frustrated locked down at home. You can keep yourself constructively busy.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Since HOME has become the center of focus for all of us, a few things that can be done apart from work are –

1. Work on Relationships – Our core relationships of family have been bought to the forefront with the current Covid 19 outbreak. You can spend leisure time with spouse, children and parents talking, telling anecdotes and stories. By the way this is also COMMUNICATION and can help you bridge the relationship gap.

2. Games- You can re-discover your childhood indoor games like Ludo, Snakes and Ladder, Carom, Scrabble, Uno, Monopoly etc. They really do help in bonding and can be a great learning ground.

3. Sleep – You can catch up on your missed beauty sleep.

4. Hobbies- You can revisit the hobbies you did not have time for like cooking, painting, sketching, guitar, dancing etc. In fact videos are great tutorials.

5. Reading – Now is the time for your favorite book which you have been thinking about for a long time.

6. Meditation- Try loving your own company for some time in the day for you deserve the best version of yourself. In the end I would say- ‘Tough times do not last but tough people do’.

In these times, keep Sane, Safe and Healthy.
