THIS IS SERIOUS, IT’S TO DEAL WITH A VIRUS THE LIKES OF WHICH WE HAVE NEVER DEALT WITH, IT’S NOT SOME CURFEW YOUR PARENTS IMPOSED WHICH ON BREAKING YOU WILL GET A YOU BADASS HIGH FIVE FROM YOUR FRIENDS, IF YOU DO THIS EVEN A SECOND IS ENOUGH TO KILL YOU AND OTHER INNOCENT PEOPLE ALONG WITH YOU FOR YOUR RECKLESS BEHAVIOUR.
Every day when I wake up I literally drag myself out of bed because it’s another 12 hour of work, travel etc and once I reach out for Coffee the energy levels soar directly from the initial 25% to 100%. After 6 days in which we feel doubly tired than God did when he created this world comes the 7th Day when we rest like never before, all alarms shut off, all coffee packets away and the whole day goes away in bed and out just chilling and cuddling and after opening the pandora of messages on your WhatsApp group catching up on some shows on the numerous streaming shows available to us.
These precious 24 hours go away quicker than the entire week and on Monday we becomes the mules of money, work, time and for some of us our passions and catch the flights to office to return back to our utopia a week later. These weeks have turned into months, which have turned into years and we have got those promotions and paid those essential bills but despite those expensive spa therapies are we really connected inside out?
The answer is NO. I meditate after every Reading session, spend time with my family after I come from work, try to catch up on those shows till I fall asleep and on Sundays, call my friends and make plans to cancel some later due to work commitments but here I am today looking at a Lockdown which God knows will last how long but is extremely essential for us to Survive.
The COVID 2019 came upon us unsuspectingly, though we didn’t get a warning like Noah and weren’t able to build a boat but we do have an option and if we are lucky enough to be able to be a part of this lockdown in this huge population then darlings you are already blessed so quit acting like cry babies and for once for the sake of humanity stay in and be safe as this what you can do.
Even though it’s not the way we wanted our ME time, we have got it, so suck it up and use it. There are so many things you can you do and trust me the time you spend on your phone using social media is too much so you are left with very less time to spare and in that time there are countless of things you can do, I am sure you do have a list but here is a list of things you can do if this social distancing is boring you:
A) The most easiest is to actually make good on the money you spend on Netflix, Amazon Prime and the numerous web streaming services you have paid for and actually watch shows and movies, trust me there are a hell lot of good shows and movies which you might have not seen even if you are movie/tv buff. If confused take suggestions from your friends and start streaming.
B) All the bookworms complaining about how we lost our passion for reading once we started working because we didn’t have time well get those books out old and new and start reading, this is the perfect time to complete that I read __ books challenge on Goodreads.
C) Let’s come to hobbies now when was the last time you painted, wrote a poem or a short story. played the guitar or ukulele, knitted something, made an origami? There are numerous indoor activities we were fond of while growing up which we stopped pursuing because of time constraints. Let the muse strike and get going.
D) After all this if you are still bored, call your friends and talk to them and repair those fractured relationships that you let crack over these years because you didn’t find time or couldn’t prioritise. Talk to your parents, in these troubled times they are feeling more anxiety than we do as our moms are cooking, dads are providing for us so just sit with them for a while, it will surely put a smile on their faces. Help your mom around the house as she doesn’t get a 25% less workload but with a Full House she is working extra hard.
E) Meditation really helps and there are numerous apps which help you step by step to meditate so download them and try it as you need to be mentally healthy and Meditation is the best tool for this.
These all things which I have mentioned are very less few compared to what we can do when we put our minds to but all we are thinking about is how we are at home and bored. This sentence itself is so negative that we should reframe it as I am at home and have all the time right now to do all that I was missing on and see how it changes truly for you.
I do know some people are having trouble as the gym is closed but there are fantastic videos on YouTube which tell you how to workout at home. Working out is important but so is staying alive.
If you are getting to stay at home know that you are lucky as there are numerous health workers, cleaners, police personnel, grocery vendors, Govt employees, Bankers etc who do not have this luxury to stay at home and work, so what can we do for them? We can stay at home and not contaminate the society.
Now let’s get to the part where some people are escaping isolation, I know they must be scared but to act so irresponsibly and put the lives of numerous others at risk is a shameful act, if you see such a person then report them asap to the nearest municipal corporation and contact police if required.
Maybe the isolation wards are bad but this is what we have and escaping it by beating medical staff is as bad a crime as keeping it dirty. Accept it that we are not USA or UK, we do have 5 and 7 Star Hospitals but none of them are coming forward and helping by setting up quarantine wards or offering some incentives. Only the Govt Hospitals are helping us through this situation and for crying out loud this is a quarantine facility and you are recuperating from a disease not on a Holiday that you will get a pool and mojitos served by the bar.
Your money is not going to save you from this. You common sense is. Some people have to quarantine themselves in hospitals because they are too sick to stay at home or don’t have big houses to self isolate themselves.
It is imperative to follow medical protocol right now and help yourself and others and if you don’t do that then you are not a HUMAN but an ASSHOLE.
The last thing I would like to urge you’ll to do is follow the curfew on 22nd March as it’s essential. You might not be a fan of the PM and the Govt but this is for you and if you don’t do it just to teach a lesson to Mr Modi then you are an idiot of the highest order as you are screwing it up not just for yourself and everyone.
Also I don’t know if the clap thing works or no but if not for our PM we can do this for our Dr’s as a gesture to applaud the constant efforts that they are putting in to cope with this. Claps create a positive frequency and I would like to do that as a gesture to uplift the energy levels and of course as my way of saluting the people who keep our community growing.
The last time you said that the economic status is screwed up but what can we do something about this only if we get through this and for us to do that get this Country back where it is we need to beat this Corona by being smart, staying safe, listening to medical professionals and spreading love and kindness virtually as this world needs it most.
Also a sincere request to all my spiritual friends and light-workers, create energy chains and pass them on and pray as much as you can, this world needs light and those who can should give their 100%.
Together we can and together we will. Use this indoor to be creative and spread love.
THIS IS YOUR TIME TO BE THE SUPERHERO, IF YOU STAYED IN THEN YOU ACTUALLY HELPED SAVE THE WORLD
