This is the best thing to start your day with. 

The moment you get up (be it in the morning or evening), wash your face, stand in front of the mirror, and appreciate yourself. It sounds stupid! Yeah! But it works wonders! 

It boosts your morale and self-confidence in a hot second. And, yes, don’t forget to smile at yourself. 

2.
Cut off..

All of you have a hidden artist, inside. So, let that creative being out from within and try something new in these traumatic days. Once this coronavirus tragedy gets over, trust me, you will be proud of yourself. 

And, let me tell you one important thing!

While many of you love to sleep because you don’t have offices to rush to. But having a set time is extensively important for mental well-being. It makes you control any kind of situation to a larger extent. Hence, eat your meals timely and have set times for waking up and sleeping. 

Unstructured time is an immense source of boredom and can deteriorate your mental health. 

5.
Say yes to the family time

While many of you are living with your families, it’s a great opportunity to have chai/coffee time with your family. If you are staying away then pick up your phone and talk to your parents. A small conversation will make you feel happy and positive. 

A whole lotta gossip can decrease the stress considerably.

That’s all folks! Yes, it is going to be tough, but allowing ourselves to feel positive emotions is more important these days. So, stay healthy, safe, connect (or sometimes disconnect), and breathe.
