Hope you are doing fine.
As you know that the whole WORLD is facing issues due to the Covid-19 Pandemic situation.
In Dubai as well there was a lock down like how it was in any other part of the world.
I cannot tell you how relieved we were when we got to know that lock down has been released and we can go out again for a walk freely.Of,course,we are not going out frequently .It is just that I was so done with the lock down situation that's after being in the lock down situation for almost three months.
So,if you are in a similar situation & lock down is either lifted or going on,please read this post and I really hope these tips will be helpful to you in some way.
Today, I will share some important tips so that you can at least cope-up with this whole situation which
has brought a lot of uncertainty in our lives.
1.Stop getting overloaded by the social media news related to Covid 19.Be on track,however,don’t overdo it.
2.Get up early and do regular tasks at home as you used to do before the lock down.Remember how you used to dress-up for office or going out or to stay at home ? say no to pajamas (during the day time,wear it ,however,don't wear it all the time).Dressing up will be helpful as it will give you confidence.
3.Have a plan ready to be executed/day-routine for each day & by the end of the day be aware of next day’s tasks.
4.Eat well. If you like exercising/yoga/meditation-do it as per your Normal routine.It will make you feel better.
