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.

Till then say NO to thoughts that get you down.
Lots of love
