How to win during Covid-19
How to win during Covid-19?
The world has changed. Let’s accept it and it may not ever go back to the way it was before Covid-19 took over the world. Maybe it is good news for some or maybe it is not.
But I would like to take time to shed an optimists view on how one can benefit from this unprecedented time, without any intention of downplaying how much this has negatively impacted most of the world. Just go with me as I try to look for the silver lining during this time. Take a look at some of the ways on how to win during covid-19
- Stop and take note – I believe we can benefit from this time of isolation and time at home. During this time of social distancing, it might be the best time to stop and take note of the races that we are running both intentionally and unintentionally. Take note of our goals, reassess certain friendships and relationships. Are we getting out of life what we wanted and hoped for? This time of isolation and social distancing will be the perfect foil for reassessment.
- Nail a solid Morning routine– A solid morning routine is a key to any productive day. During this time of isolation, it is easy to get into a Netflix binge and letting ourselves go before we go back to the way things were. But if we are to be productive during this time nailing a solid morning routine is very important.
- While I do not condone any of the above a simple 15-minute prayer and 15-minute exercise routine followed by a strong breakfast has helped me set things off to a good start. It’s like every good performance in a cricket match needs a good start by the opening batsman, a solid morning routine is pivotal for a successful and productive day
- Practice HIIT, Home workouts– While most gyms remain closed, home workouts are our only hope apart from a walk or run outside if you’re allowed to, depending on the restrictions in place in your part of the world
- .A simple 15-20 minute HIIT routine which doesn’t require any equipment. For a recommendation on an easy HIIT workout, I’m sure our good friend Manish would be happy to help.
- Stay connected – Social distancing doesn’t mean social disconnecting. Man is a social being and it is, therefore, crucial to remain connected with family, friends or colleagues during this.
- You can still make new friends, call an old friend, zoom your high school mates, thanks to technology we don’t have to be disconnected.
- Learn something new– Covid-19 is an ideal time to learn something new. Practice cooking, learn a language on Duolingo, read the book you always wanted to or even watch a documentary.
- There’s so much to learn and it can start from anywhere, Covid-19 doesn’t have to stop you from learning. So go on, nothing better than to keep learning during this time, and the good part is you have plenty of time.
- Practice Gratefulness– While it’s true that the current scenario is not the best but it’s hard to be upset if your always looking on the bright side. There’s so much to be thankful for even during these times. I am grateful for my family, friends and even personal interaction now that I can’t do it.
- Go ahead! look at the silver lining even though it could be a challenge. Remember, that it is okay to be upset during this time, but also remember that you are ultimately responsible for what you chose to feel.
While one shouldn’t focus solely on productivity during this time, being there for each other and helping one another has always been man’s greatest quality. Man has faced worse problems than this before and we have always found a way out. While the current scenario isn’t expected to remain so for too long things are changing by the day. Let’s make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity and try to get the most out of it.
