More than three months spent indoors owing to the lockdown due to worldwide pandemic, almost every one of us is coming out as a winner with some new skills, new thought process, change in habits, and self-discovery. This pandemic seems to be quite overwhelming with families getting enough time to spend with each other, understand each other’s emotional and professional quotient well, and quick fix the broken areas. I personally feel that this hard-to-find-together-time is the first-ever much-needed gift from the Almighty though the way is quite depressing but I believe that this pandemic will leave something good for everyone when it will fade away!

We all are active on social media, we read news, get a little depressed about the number cases rising, and next, we read a story by one of our friends about his/her new hobby or a new skill or may be a regular workout session he/she has adopted; this story by our friend unexpectedly motivates us to treat ourselves better and do something good with our life! So, I feel that this is good that we are motivated when everything outdoors is so depressing.  

Social Media came as a rescue for many for the first few days but boredom prevailed as the lockdown extended. This lockdown came as a sudden break to the accelerated world. #WorkFromHome has now become the new normal, those random cooking sessions, TV sessions, and a chit-chat with long-forgotten friends bring the requisite #positivityinlockdown.

But we must not forget that this COVID-19 has become a reality check for everyone as well in the form of #pandemiclockdown2020. Work without maids, empty roads, roaming inside the home only, no meetings with friends, and no more hugs!

And who knew that the balcony views would be so pleasurable? 

Let’s cherish this time and pray together for everyone on the earth where Masks, Sanitiser and Gloves now own the new market and have become a necessity for a living!

    Yes, Sumit, this pandemic has given us time to celebrate with ourselves and our near and dear ones. It is at times, depressing but it has opened our eyes to not ignore our health n keep oneself healthy n sound to fight against the deadly Covid19.
    It has been dreadful for those who have lost near and dear ones due to Covid 19 and the labourers who were running to reach their home state.
    Thanks for joining in. #pandemic2020

      Though sometimes this pandemic and consequent lockdown keep us demotivated, it has some brighter sides as well. We have learnt to live happily with our family, cooking for them, spending time with the senior family members and all.

    Well said, this hard to find together times certainly has taught us a lot and will leave a long-lasting impact once it fades away.
    And so true in these depressing times when a friend posts a positive activity or post, it surely has helped us stay positive and start trying something ourselves too.
