If only I had more time to spend with my family !

If only I could start blogging again!

If only I could paint more often !

If only I could stay home and rest !

If only I could stay home and chill!

I had these and many more- if onlies….

And then ,this lockdown happened. All of sudden forcing me to chill and relax. The downside of this lockdown is the pandemic that COVID 19 has brought upon this world followed by an economic slowdown.

Well the first few weeks I really didn’t know what to do with all this time and staying home . The roads were empty and restaurants and cafes closed. No people on the streets, even on weekends. It was a strange feeling initially.

It felt like a scene from a SCI FI movie. I might as well say I have wasted the first few weeks in unpreparedness. slowly I Jumped Into attending webinars, then reading books and then cooking at home instead of going out . I recently read books like JANE EYRE, 1984, THE LEAN STARTUP, MY TALL GREEN FRIENDS and THE STARBUCKS EXPERIENCE . I am currently reading Hafsah Faizal’s ‘WE HUNT THE FLAME’ .

Slowly I am adjusting to this Lockdown. I’m also going back to painting again! And ofcourse Binge watching series . I’m Currently hooked to SCHITT’S CREEK

Coming To The Reason Why we are in this lock down . COVID19! A new strain of virus that didn’t even have a name 6 months ago.It’s scary how a microorganism that small,can bring this world to a halt.

The Best way to protect yourself and everybody around you is through social distancing. Respect and follow the guidelines shared by World Health Organization(WHO). Health care frontliners , the defence army,police, delivery guys, sanitation department andmany hidden heroes are working really hard to win over this situation.let us help them by not increasing their workloads unnecessarily . Stay home as much as you can.

By being reckless and not sticking to these guidelines we are risking other’s lives too.

Life if too precious to be thrown around like that.

Take care of each other . More so in the present circumstances. Helping one another and being kind is the key here.

Invest your time in creative things and learning something new. Are there hobbies you also wanted to get back to? How are you making the most of this lockdown ?
