Go down the memory lane

When anxiety peaks, a simple scroll through the pictures of your last vacation can set your mind at ease. Happy memories have a super-effective way of doubling dopamine and reducing stress instantly. Pick up your parent’s wedding album or create a new album for your childhood pics.

Show yourself some love 

When you show yourself love, you actually attract more love into your life. Over the next few days indulge in some self care. Ask your folks to give you a hair massage or make yourself a face pack.
Here’s a simple hack:- you’ll need a tablespoon of besan(gram flour), 1/2 tbsp of turmeric, 1/2 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp of raw milk. Apply it on your face, leave it for 15-20 minutes and then wash it off. This will leave your face moistened and glowing.

Relive your childhood 

As children, most of us loved playing board games, be it Ludo, Snakes and Ladder or Scrabble. Some of these games must still be lying in some corner of the house, gathering dust. It’s time to brush the dust off and get playing with the family. Once you are done with your work- from-home, you can sit with your family for a round or two and can relive your childhood.

Keep your friends close

Long phone calls with friends and family can be a super stress reliever. Impromptu video calls with old friends are more useful ways of coping with stress rather than scourging news articles for hopeful news all day, every day.

Well if next time you are stressed

  • Take a step back, inhale and laugh remember who you are and why you’re here. You’re never given any thing in this world that you can’t handle.
  • Be strong, love yourself and love others.
  • Take a deep breath and hope for the best.
  • We are in this together.
