Corona Break – Fear OR Learn

No school, no malls, and work from home can be a recipe for a very overwhelming home environment or though it may sound very insensitive, the present situation can be seen as a BLESSING- actually a BLESSING IN DISGUISE if we use the situation as an opportunity.

The fear and precautions to be taken are real and it may scare some of us and our dear ones but use the situation to teach and learn a very important life skill of being positive and persevere by doing what is in our control and making the best of the situation.

On one hand use it to know how we react to fear and learn to respond better, by not spreading fear and fact-checking, not stocking up unnecessarily leading to a shortage of essentials (groceries and medicine/sanitizer, mask) but do optimum consumption and avoid uncalled for panic. As a parent, you may take care of your panic by-
• Avoiding unauthentic information on the virus
• Taking proper steps as told by the authority
• Do the regular activities individually, in isolation rather than not doing it at all
• Be positive – read, watch, listen to relaxing and positive content
• Stay in touch with friends and family virtually

On the other hand can use this time together with the loved ones to reconnect and bond by spending quality time (cook, paint, play together) with the loved ones, make use of the slow pace of life we Mumbaikars are required to live for some time now. Can do some of the following –
• Get study done in the morning
• Do some online worksheets, exercise
• Watch some good movies or other content together and discuss
• Good time to do some art, craft, basic cooking, and other chores together
• Recount your childhood experiences and old memories to reconnect with your kids
