No matter what your personal opinion on the on-going lockdown may be, there’s one positive anyone can take from this: It’s the best solution to curb the outbreak. Make it a point to show your family and the community how much you appreciate them just by staying indoors.
Cherish Moments with Your Loved Ones
We have always been overwhelmed by the fast pace of life. As such, putting down your phone or laptop to give people at home full, undivided attention was a big ask. But the quarantine period bets on the opposite. Together with your family, play games, divide into teams and tackle new recipes, discuss the world news, call old friends and attend online courses.
Appreciate the Efforts of Those Working Day and Night
Doctors, nurses and pharmacists have always earned our appreciation and respect, and it has only multiplied in the current situation. And to thank them doesn’t have to come in the form of flowers of a box of candy. Because the biggest favour you can do is staying at home.
Cleaners and cashiers are playing vital roles to ensure cleanliness and grocery services are not compromised. Finally, kitchen staffs and food delivery riders who nullify our hunger. A word or two of appreciation can go a long way in making their day better.
Note: We will be open for limited hours as our lunch boxes, paper bowls and organic food products are constantly required.
Acknowledge the Positivity
Some happy stories soften the blow of the current situation. Numerous parts of the world are witnessing a decrease in pollutions. Acts of kindness such as free food offerings to the homeless and stray animals, ingredients giveaway by cafes and cake houses and online donations have given us reasons to smile. Spread these stories in social media and at home to uplift the positive vibes.
Stock Up on Kindness
The last few packets of instant noodles that you shoved into your cart could feed a pregnant mother, a nurse rushing in for her first meal of the day or a gentleman who has to feed his children. Someone, somewhere might have just cracked open his/her last source of food and has no idea that the store shelves are drastically cleared up. We are not saying your cart should look like an episode from a weight-loss reality show but know when to draw the line.
Be kind, it costs nothing.
Focus on Your Body and Mind
At such times, stress and anxiety could shackle onto you quite fast. Take time to meditate every day, exercise with your family and work on a gratitude journal. Trust us, the latter habit would change your life.
Plan on Your Future and Goals
Such a pause permits us to reassess our life’s path. We are currently unmarred by materialism, which makes our vision clearer on just about everything. It could be the career you want, starting a new volunteer program to help the community and Mother Nature, or even a shaky relationship.
