Did this lockdown bring any change in your daily routine & in you as a person?This is a very unfortunate time but many of us are fortunate enough to be surviving comfortably at our homes with all the necessary facilities and income at the same time.
I will not be talking anything about the calamity but only share my experience of being in the lock down for last 2 months and how its has brought about changes in me and my routine.
Initially it all seemed like a very temporary arrangement and was expecting the lock down to end in 2 weeks time, but when it got extended with no respite in disease then I started to adapt and note the changes in myself.
In the beginning I panicked with fake messages floating that all shops will be shut and I did go to grocery store and purchased more than I would normally do. But soon realized that i have made unnecessary buying by falling in trap of fake messages. Soon, I started to make changes to myself and kept myself alert and adopted a healthy routine which goes as below:
1. I started to wake up early, by 6 a.m. (I know many of you wake up by 4) but this is early for me.
2. Started fasting, once a week.
3. Started to go to sleep by 11 pm max.
4. Extended time of exercise and meditation from 30 minutes to 1 hour daily.
5. Started teaching my kid new words and language.
What I personally feel is that, I am fortunate enough to have enough resources in such testing times and also was able to do a little contribution financially and in kind.
All these things made and changes have made me more energetic and clear and more compassionate. I now pay more attention to my kid and wife and I now respond rather than react.
My anxiousness has also come down and I feel more productive than before. This period has to an extent changed me and i want to continue with the same spirit in near future too.
I would like members to share their part of story that this lock down has brought about in them. I am not discussing anything about the pandemic but only about the lock down, that has affected us. I know there are lot more aspects that are there to be covered but, I would like to stick to individual level only, as everything cannot and should not be discussed as of now.
