“Sometimes we can only find our true direction when we let the wind of change carry us” says Mimi Novic which is absolutely true in the current pandemic situation. With the sudden outbreak of the novel corona virus, lockdown was imposed on 25th March which turned our life 180 degrees leading us to a haywire situation. We all have got disoriented with our daily schedules but there are certain ways which can turn around your life in this Unlock 4.0 which begins from 1st September as said by our Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji and you can make the best of this period with little corrections in your habits which will increase your productivity.

Key Highlights:

  • Almost 85% of the people lost their job amid lockdown which is incredibly stressful.
  • There are more than 50 exercises which you can do at home without any equipments.
  • A variety of 100+ free online courses of new age skills will boost your confidence to become AtmaNirbhar in the nearing slump financial conditions.

During the lockdown period, all of us have taken the liberty of sudden vacation time which certainly has some pros and cons. Our disoriented schedules have taken a toll on our physical as well as mental health. Most of us took this time for granted instead of using it productively. Never mind, it’s never too late to begin fresh and correct our mistakes.

Here are 7 steps that will turn your life around in Unlock 4.0:

  • 1. Improve your ruined sleep schedule:
  • How many of you have not seen the face of the morning sunshine from the past five months? Agreed that sudden implementation of lockdown took us with a bit of surprise as to what to do. Lot of us started spending more time on phones, laptops, binge watching our favourite movies and series which ultimately increased laziness and decreased productivity. To be back to normal, follow a proper work from home schedule with eight hours of work and eight hours of sleep strictly sticking to ‘early to bed and early to rise’ pattern. Allot a specific time for your favourite shows/movies in the remaining eight hours.

  • 2. Restart your neglected physical workout routine:
  • Since the imposition of lockdown, we all have become physically inactive as the gyms are shut. It is high time now to stop relying on gymming as the only source of workout. Do you know? There are more than 50 body weight exercises which you can do at home without any equipment. Along with physical exercises you can also perform yoga that can provide much-needed solace. In Unlock 4.0, with fewer restrictions, you can go for morning walks with all the precautions like wearing mask, social distancing, and sanitising hands.

  • 3. Relieve mental stress by Yoga and Meditation:
  • Almost 85% of the people lost their job amid lockdown which is incredibly stressful. The stress is real, particularly if one or both partners are dealing with children at home, financial concerns, illness affecting a friend or a family member. These concerns, along with a generalised uncertainty about what is going to happen next. You cannot deny the tough situation that you are going through but definitely you can lower you stress by performing meditation and yoga daily that will bring inner peace and allow you to overcome your mental stress in this tense situation.

  • 4. Boost your Immunity naturally which is at risk:
  • In this corona outbreak period, most of us took a back-foot towards health by becoming chefs on Instagram and cooking restaurant like delicacies at home. In the wake of Covid-19 pandemic, there has been a lot of interest in ways to strengthen one’s immune system and thus build a first line defence against the deadly corona virus. There has been an extensive use of giloy, aswagandha, kalmegh, neem, amla etc. to create a first line defence with strong immunomlodulating and antiviral properties. Instead of using these herbs individually, you can also use a all-in-one pack of Covident (RIM) that protects your entire respiratory system.

  • 5. Develop New-Age Skills to be AtmaNirbhar in deflation:
  • Everyone was not sure of when the lockdown would end and what the post Covid-19 economy would look like; so, all of us thought we had all the time in the world to chill. Everyone got a little ignorant about their skill development and hobbies. Well, now is the time where you can develop new age skills digitally by taking free online courses through Coursera , Udemy , edX etc. or pursuing your hobbies that you would like to give time. If you are a part of the youth, you can intern with the Covident Ambassador Program where you can earn while you are learning. The skill development with 100+ free courses and internships will boost your confidence to become AtmaNirbhar in the nearing slump financial conditions.

  • 6. Protect your eyes from constant harmful blue light:
  • As the lockdown was imposed 90% of the work got digitalised like online learning, office works, binge watching, and virtually connecting to friends. The strenuous hours of ‘work from home’ on laptop and phone has a drastic impact on our vision like watery, itchy, blurry, and irritating eyes. The simplest way to prevent your eyes from overexposure to blue light is by managing the time spent on screen. If you cannot avoid using screen due to work, then make an investment on having pair of UV glasses that blocks harmful blue light and minimises eye strain. Turn on ‘night mode’ on mobile phones and laptops to stop emission of blue light from the screen and use adaptive brightness feature to optimize the level of brightness as per surroundings. Splash your eyes intermittently with water along with the usage of refreshing eye drops twice a day. These little steps will help you protect your eyes from the adverse effects of blue lights.

  • 7. Foster offline human relations in this virtual world:
  • This phase is very challenging as life has taken a 180 degree turn back in March; but the silver lining of this lockdown is making the most out of this time in a productive way if you haven’t done till now. So, stop feeling underachieved with yourself and buckle up to upskill yourself right from taking new online course, pursuing your hobbies, strengthening your relations with people you love. Apart from this you must exercise both your body and mind regularly to make necessary lifestyle changes and practice gratitude. Hopefully, your life will turn around in a positive way with these small yet effective steps. So, when are you going to stop thinking and start making the most of this situation in a positive and productive way???
