It’s been 50 days today that I’m in quarantine and probably the situation in our country is not going to get good anytime soon because just today in our block someone got infected with coronavirus and probably our area is going to be under containment zone. I thought of going outside after 17th May because it’s the day when the third phase of the lockdown will be over and fourth will start but it doesn’t feel alright anymore. So, most probably I’m going to stay inside for the next 15-20 days too. The situation out there is pretty stressful but we also have to carry on with our lives. Some of them have to go outside and work because the offices have opened now. Though lots of people are still working from home right now but some people need to be in the office and they have started going out. I don’t know what’s the situation like in your country or region. So, let me know how you guys are doing in the comment section below? I haven’t been consistent with posting on my blog because I was working on the release of my book “The stardust in my soulbones.” The book is available for purchase now on Amazon and if you happen to be a subscriber of kindle unlimited then you will be able to grab this book in free. It’s a collection of a hundred poems and I’m very much excited about it. I promise to get in touch with you guys daily now because I love writing for you guys.
Now, coming back to today. We all feel this situation. Maybe, some people feel it less and others more but we know what it is like to be in a place like this and I would say that it’s a good thing that we can understand each other. It’s something which we all share around the globe and that doesn’t make me or you the only one feeling it. While all this is happening around us, there is one thing I would like to say which is “smile”. We all have heard that a smile is a curve that sets everything straight. I didn’t really believe this until I tried this technique. Do you when you smile (even if you do not feel like it), you are fooling your brain into thinking that everything is fine and there is nothing to be worried about. I was amazed by how quickly and how well it worked. Also, we all have been hearing that how important it is to boost our immune system at this point and you will be happy to know that smiling makes our immune system stronger because our whole body starts relaxing as soon as you put this curve on your face. Trust me, I’ smiling right now. That’s not it. When you smile, the feel-good neurotransmitters; which are dopamine, serotonin and endorphins are released in our body making us feel good about our day. One more thing, whenever you are having a headache or any kind of pain, don’t forget to smile because the endorphins which are released when we do so, are natural pain relievers for our body. You don’t need any pain killers anymore. Oh! And one more thing, smiling also elongates our lives. After knowing all this, at least one thing I’m clear about, that smiling is going to be one of the many protective mechanisms for my mind and body during this pandemic. (just don’t give creepy smiles! JK)
