What are we up to these Quarantine Days?
How is this quarantine going for everyone? Are we happy? Or clubed with thoughts and emotions? Everyone is going through the same tough situation though. And some are even worse. There are a lot of people outside, who go for daily wages work, without food now. And people who are home with all essentials are not happy with anything around. Few desparately want to go out, meet friends and families, and want to go to job. I know this is so bad for each of us here. Many wedding chapters have been postponed, whereas few took place within a little space.
The major thing that’s happening is misunderstandings and random arguments between spouses. I have been hearing a lot recently, and even today. What not! Even me and my husband went through the same situation a couple of days back. To my thoughts, it is not a big thing to think about it and fight back with your spouse. All of us are stuck in a position where we’re occupied with a lot of thoughts that are actually not necessary. We just face those four walls, look at each other the whole day, and try to go on with time till end of the day. This has more chances of creating madness, anger, and boredom, keeping our mind ideal. It is true they say, “An ideal mind is a devil’s workshop”. We keep giving more volume of thoughts to even the simplest things which is causing all the misunderstanding and unnecessary spat with partner or anybody. This is a time to be together, time to understand each other, being patient with one another, love endlessly. But we all fail at some point. Spend more time face-to-face. Because, this is one agreement myself and my husband are working on. And you know what? It helps! Truly, yes. We keep our phones away, and are practicing this habit of talking to each other on how the day went for both of us; his office work, my day time, some general news. Speaking and sharing helps too much beyond what we expect. Parents, who have children of young age, can spend time with kids and teach them many learnings. Give them little activities, which means not just that are related to academics. It can also be simple household works, helping in the kitchen, a short session in the terrace to get fresh breeze, and teach them physical exercises. Show them there is a lot to perform within this little space. We have so much to do, learn, and keep learning more. Especially housewives, it is not just your kitchen even now. Take care of your body and do something for yourself to build you better. Don’t forget yourselves while taking care of others. Get enough rest, sleep and relax, and stay hydrated. Cleanse your mind and detox your body.
Because, it is important, and you matter the most.
Let’s all try to be stress-free instead of worrying when this will end. Hard times don’t last. Let’s hope for it. We’re coming out of this together.
