How are you doing during this Corona Captivation? I hope you all are taking precautions and Not doing what you aren’t supposed to do.
Let’s be #AlertNotAnxious
Where there are a lot of people feeling bored, and not knowing what to do with their time, I am facing a completely opposite situation. I am feeling like ‘Aisa Vacation na Milega Dobara!’ I want to do everything I like doing, that I do not have time for in my regular life. While I want to Paint and Cook and Write, I feel like this is an excellent opportunity to watch Movies and Series. And between all this I should also not stop studying.. So, I was unable to decide what to do at that time. Since last 3 days I have been doing things randomly, without planning, just according to the mood. But then I end up not doing a lot of things and I feel I wasted that time. So today I sat down and decided to make a schedule 😅. This will help me accomplish more and will ultimately make me more happy.
So firstly I have divided all my tasks into 3 categories.
- Must Do
- Creative Jobs
- Consumption Jobs
- Sleep Properly:
Sleep is among the most underrated aspects of Immunity. In order for our immune cells (T cells) to kill Virus infected cells, they need to come in direct contact with them. Adhesion molecules like Intergrins promote this contact. But stress molecules like Adrenaline and Noradrenaline decreases the stickiness of integrins. As level of these stress hormones decreases when we are asleep, T cells can bind with infected cells better. A good night’s sleep of 7- 8 hours is very important.
Atleast 30 minutes of exercise has amazing health benefits. You can do anything you like from Yoga to dance and Cardio. Time is not an excuse now.
- Eating Nutritious food:
Feeding your body certain foods may help keep your immune system strong. Citrus fruits, garlic, ginger, spinach, yogurt, almonds, broccoli, bell papers, Tulsi, turmeric, black perrer, Neem, tea, papaya, berries will help you get optimum Vitamins and Minerals while providing your body with Macronutrients like Proteins and Carbohydrates.
And, DRINK MORE WATER
Now, let’s move on to a more interesting part..
2. Creative Jobs:
This can include anything from Painting, Writing to Working – anything that makes you feel productive.
Examples of these activities can be:

- Make Diaries: Be it Journaling, writing Gratitude, a travel diary, a scrap book or just a report of your day- document your feelings
If you are serious about writing, you should write something for 90 minutes daily. This helps us in learning to express ourselves and helps us in use of good words. But 90 minutes daily may not be easy for all. So we can do it now.
There are many forms of literature in various languages. Like, I want to write atleast one Poem in these days.
Write letters! Write to old friends or Go ahead and E- mail People that inspire you!

3. Consumption Jobs:
