Here's what I did on day 1 of #LockdownIndia. Stay Cheerful!
As promised, here's my day 1 post of #21daysofpositivity that I started yesterday, after PM Modi announced #LockdownIndia.
Everywhere we go--online, because we can't go anywhere offline (heh heh)--we are bombarded with death tolls, and exponential numbers (the very word now sends shudders down everyone's spines!).
To preserve sanity, I have decided not to hear or speak any negativity. I find people calling other people morons very moronic :) These are difficult times. To each their own. I find people mocking other people pathetic. Their energetic vibrations are so low that the only way they feel better about themselves is to pull others down. This happens a lot on Twitter, and I am quick on the block button. There's no point arguing with someone who will never see it the way you do. It is best to protect your energies.
This morning, I introduced Satish (my husband) to TikTok. We had fun scrolling through the utter nonsensical videos together, and laughing at some. He cooked breakfast (upma) and I put together a nice video of it for him, which he posted on his profile.
After that I had a terrific one hour home workout. You can check out my instagram post for a fun video I posted with my new personal trainer :)
Then I read my book Haruki Murakami's Dance Dance Dance, which I am enjoying a lot. Took a nice snooze with my four legged baby (both the two legged ones have flown the coop, and I miss them a lot) after which it was time to walk her, which I did.
I will be making a portrait in a bit. You can check out my portraits on my Instagram Art account.
This is how I have kept negativity at bay today. By saying a 'No Entry' and creating a lockdown on negativity.
Guard your mind, my friend. Don't allow your mind to wander towards things that can get you down.
Fall into a book!
If you have been out of reading habit for a while, and are looking to get started with something short, may I suggest a very exciting and unusual short story I wrote?
It's only available as a e-book.
You can read it on the Kindle app or on the google play store.

I would love to hear what you did, and how your day one of lockdown went.

These are time’s of stress and negativity. Need a lot of positivity to come out of this. Your blog is helpful and interesting to read.. good oneReplyDelete
Day 12 of lockdown for us. It’s been fun homeschooling the kids - we are doing geography and crossword puzzles and sudoku and creative writing - stuff that they barely get time to work on in school. It’s been a fun time - we never turn the TV on so news don’t bother us. I read a bit online to keep updated and that’s it. All of us are reading a ton too - I finished “Reborn on the run” by Catra Corbett yesterday, she is an ultra runner. I started “Ikigai” next.ReplyDelete
It took me back to a time when my kids were little. Stay safe! <3Delete
Happy Ugadi and a happy new year!ReplyDelete

Myself along with my husband after long hectic day work, played Mario kart(games are very new to me)! We had lots of fun! This Ugadi festival we both prayed after Puja for the well being of the world at this time right now. As determined chanted Hanuman Chalisa(Powerful prayer in tough times) 9 times and thats it.ReplyDelete
Reciting Hanuman Chaalisa is a great idea and I will do it today.Thank you!Delete
I did two things one which I love doing and the other which I hate doing! I completed my assignments which I just hate doing but I am actually happy that I completed the work assigned to me. I also reviewed a book which I always love to do :)ReplyDelete

Day 1 of lock 🔒 down. Got up early . Meditated for 20 minutes.. 40 days ago I lost my wife. February 15th night...ReplyDelete
Cleaned up the house...
Read a book... Started writing my childhood memories..
Listened to music.. Old songs...
Evening watered the plants ..
This is my Day 1..
Before the lockdown I was working. Now, I am at home so decided to help out around the house with the chores which I normally do not get a chance to do. It is nice spending time with family, eating meals together, watching TV together and making up for all the lost time. Belated Ugadi Wishes to you and your family!ReplyDelete
