Ways to Beat Stress During Lockdown
Friday at 11:26 pm
The world has been in lockdown since March of this year. Illinois has been in lockdown since March 21st. Now things are becoming slightly better, but it is still better to stay indoors until the situation becomes better. Most governments around the world want to prevent a community spread. If the curve is flattened, we all can resume our lives but with care. We would still need to use masks while outdoors and we need to clean our hands consistently. But we need to wait for the curve to flatten and for that we need to stay at home. Staying at home and working from home can be stressful. Many people around the world are experiencing it. People are finding it difficult to live without socializing. But there are ways to beat the stress and a few of them are given below:
Reading is a great stress buster. In this age of technology, reading has taken a backseat. People tend to view videos rather than read but the joy of reading is something that cannot be replicated by watching videos. If you ask me, watching the Godfather movie was a good experience, great acting and all but it was not a patch on reading Mario Puzo’s magnum opus. You can read anything you want, be it fiction, non-fiction, even children’s books – it will always ease the stress and relax you. So dust the books from your shelf and start reading.
Yes, this is the best time to play with your kids and family. You can play many indoor games with your kids and make this difficult time a memorable one. If you are tired of playing board games with your kids you can play online games. But remember playing with your kids is the best stress buster.
If you like to visit casinos and play the many games on offer, you can do that at online casinos in the lockdown. You can play your favourite games and make money in the bargain. There are websites like clovr.com which assist you in finding the best casinos by reviewing them. So beat the stress by making money.
Most of us believe that we have a story or two which we would like to pen down at some point in life. If you are one of those then this is the best time to pen down your writings and publish them. You can even write screenplays or poems, whatever you feel like. When your mind is occupied you do not have time for small things like stress.
Yes, you heard it right, draw. Drawing and coloring are great stress busters. In fact, the adult coloring books market is huge. People gift other adults these coloring books so that they can beat stress. Many doctors recommend it, so take out a book and start doodling and coloring in it.
Cleaning your room can be therapeutic. If you do not believe me, I would advise you to try it. Just cleaning your closet can beat stress because you will be amazed at the things that you will find there. Keep the ones that are required and make a pile of things that you need to dispose of, you will feel really happy after you do this chore.
