An opportunity to look inwards

An opportunity to look inwards

Today’s need of the hour — that we stay at home — seems to be Nature’s way of putting things back into place. We have moved from a fast-paced lifestyle to a state of near lock-down. Let us use this time to see some positives in what is otherwise a very tragic situation. For instance, people are becoming more conscious of hygiene; they are mindful of waste disposal; they are spending more time with their families and loved ones.

Mother Nature is smiling almost gleefully as it watches  the air  becoming pollution-free, the waters  becoming cleaner and sound pollution reducing drastically.

Bound as we are to our homes, one could easily slip into a mode of lethargy when one has no binding routine. This is a good time to rewire our brains and organize ourselves better, prioritizing many of our key factors that have been put on the back burner due to the prevailing work-life imbalance.

Let’s take time to introspect and reflect upon our lives lived so far, and what could have been better if certain things had been set in their places from the start.
