Today is day 3 of #Lockdownindia. I feel fortunate to be living in a place where I am surrounded with nature, greenery and I am blessed to have lots of garden space. Every morning when I wake up, I feel so grateful for my life . Check out my Instagram stories where I post these videos of my surroundings. For those of you new to Instagram click on the pink circle around my profile picture to view the stories. (The stories stay for 24 hours after which they disappear)
This morning when I was walking my dog (yes, walking dogs is allowed during lockdown. The Government has clarified this) I saw an incredible sight. I stood open mouthed, gaped and a shiver went down my spine. I had my dog's leash in one hand and the poopscoop in my other hand, and hence I couldn't whip out my phone to click a picture. Also I was too shaken, too awestruck that it was only when the moment passed that I felt I missed a chance. What I saw was this: an eagle swooped down before my very eyes, and picked up a snake and flew upto a tree with the snake writhing in its claws. Two smaller birds tried to peck at the snake. The eagle was having none of it, and soared higher and faster, on to another tree to enjoy its breakfast in peace. The other birds couldn't catch up or follow. They accepted defeat, resigned to the fact that they would have to look for worms after all. :)
What a brilliant and astonishing sight this was. I have goosebumps now as I descibe what I witnessed.
Are you guys working out at home? How are you getting your exercise? I am. I have posted a few snippets of me working out on my instagram page. If you are looking for a good home workout, you can check my friend's page. He is a fitness manager and has started a 21 day homeworkout programme, free of cost and you are most welcome to join in!
Lockdown is a time when you need exercise, more than ordinary times. I find that on the days that I have a really good workout, I feel happy because of all the feel-good endorphins that have been released. Today was my rest day (rest days are important for your body to recover) and I am already waiting for tomorrow so I can work out! Exercise is so addictive that way. Also, I find that on the days when I exercise I have more energy than on the days when I don't!
The picture on my left was clicked after a home workout session, and you can see my dog joins in. She watches me and tries to give me personal training :)
