Many people refer to 2020 as an unfortunate year, while there are also those who like to go with the flow and try to make the best out of the moment. And these people are the real warriors who survive difficult situations. Always remember that every situation is ephemeral and everything will change over a period of time. Learn to live in the present moment, and stop clinging to the past or worrying about the future, as none of it is in your control, except staying happy. Now the question comes is – how can we deal with pandemic despite all the chaos of life? So, here are a few tips that you can follow to lead a happy life even in the current situation:
Take Care Of Your Mental Health
The coronavirus pandemic may be stressful for many people. And one should know that fear and stress can prove to be fatal. Hence, it is advised to practice yoga or some workout daily, which will help you feel happy (because of the release of endorphin hormone – a chemical that your body releases when you exercise), increase your heart rate, oxygen flow, and burn a few calories. Take care of yourself and your family members. Albeit this is a time of social distancing, but people can still maintain their connections through virtual communication methods (like chatting on phones and video calling). This will help you feel less lonely and isolated. Else you can learn how to cook food, and try some trending food items such as Dalgona coffee or even learn a new skill.
Follow The Nature
Many people don’t know that the human body is designed to follow the pattern of nature. As, quoted by Benjamin Franklin, “Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” Even Scientists believe that following the natural clock of the body, has numerous benefits. All you have to do is get up early in the morning, head to your balcony, bask under the sun and enjoy the fresh morning breeze. And you will feel blissful and exuberant throughout the day!
People Have Different Reactions To Different Situations
Due to diversity in living organisms, every person is unique in its way and how we respond to a situation depends on our surroundings, health, family background, the society we live in, the people we surround ourselves with, and many other factors. So, instead of arguing and fighting over trivial matters with your family, try to cooperate and be considerate of their feelings. Treat people with deference. Just a brief moment of happiness is what you need to lighten the atmosphere of your house.
How do we learn to live with it?
You need to realize that you are not alone in this, and each person is living a life as complex as yours. Happiness is all about what you have and being grateful for it. Never lose sight of your blessings. Remember, no matter how worse the situation is, you always have your friends and family around, and no matter what, they will always love you. Also, just follow some basic things as mentioned earlier: –
- Exercise regularly
- Eat healthy food
- Get proper sleep
- Take time to connect with people via virtual methods of communications.
- Hearing about COVID-19, again and again, can make you feel disconsolate. So, take a break and watch your favourite movie.
