Either we can crib or nag with the present situation or we can accept it happily or could even try to enjoy whatever the condition we are facing, as this time will pass sooner or later. Stressing our nerves and getting pissed off with everyone and with every situation won’t be the right approach to deal with the virus. So, I just wish to mention some of the tried and tested approaches which might help you to deal with stress and anxiety.
Enjoy Digital Detoxification
Presently, everybody is in the productive overhaul and trying to utilise as much social media they can to showcase their skills and talents. If you are one from the audience side, you might be insecure or anxious. Don’t worry, embrace yourself and try to spend a day without using your smartphone, laptop and television set. Do anything without touching your phone like reading a book, playing the board game, trying the old clothes, cycling and whatever you feel to but without digital media intrusion. This can be a bit difficult but will surely help you to deal with stress and anxiety.
Add A Tinge of Childhood
Childhood days were amazing, no matter whichever generation you belong! So, don’t you think, we can introduce childhood memories in our day’s routine to rejuvenate ourselves amid the zombie crisis going on in the world. Just take out an hour today, and jot down the activities and games, you used to play that time and try to play them once in a week now. Or you can just flip the pages of the reeled photos, watch that old movie or have a conversation with your grandparents and share the memories, or just try to paint or write anything that you used to eat that time. Have a bit of nostalgia to divert your mind.
Break Up Your Assumptions!
We all have some or the other assumption about ourselves like we cannot dance, we don’t like to read books, we can’t cook and many more. But have you ever tried to break that chain of thoughts and tried to break up with your presumptions. When a microbial virus can shake up the whole world, at least you can try to do the things which you think you cannot. For instance, if you think you are not a book lover, just pick up a book of any topic which interests you the most and just start reading, you might end up with a heartwarming experience. Or just try some of those yoga asanas which amuse you or tap your feet on your favourite tunes (no matter if you do it alone in your room, but give it a try!) and can help you to deal with stress and anxiety.
