In a desperate attempt to combat coronavirus, the government had to take some harsh yet effective steps such as cities being on lockdown. The past few days have caused anxiety amongst many considering some people are living alone and the others are living full-time with their kids and family. Both ways of living are extreme and our generation isn’t used to it. We understand but if you learn to make good use of this time, it’s a blessing.

Stay updated and demystify coronavirus
Keep a track of the numbers of cases, number of recoveries and if anyone around you has been diagnosed positive. Don’t obsess about it though. It might demoralize you. Talk to your kids about coronavirus, explain to them the details of the situation so they are more aware and safe in the future.
Follow a routine
Lockdown in a house for days will affect your routine. The wake-up time to the dinner time, everything will move upside down. However, maintaining a routine will keep your energy up no matter how tough it gets.
One of the best activities to do as a family. Be it meditation, yoga or Zumba, whatever your kids enjoy. It will make your bond more spiritual.
Make a vision board together
Your kids may or may not have their goals set but they certainly know what kind of lifestyle they want for the future. Help them set up a new vision board and manifest better.
Discuss positive things and affirmations with your family
What you hear, shapes you. There’s a lot of negative news going around and a little positivity can beat that. Talk about positive things to each other, say good words to your family.
Listen to your kids
It is no surprise that your kids have many stories to tell you and now they have the time to speak and you have the time to listen. So before the world goes back to its hustle-bustle routine, listen to your kids and know them better.
Cook & eat a nutritious diet
For all the times you wanted to cook and eat healthier but couldn’t due to time constraints, this is your day. Learn and experiment with your cooking skills. Add more nutrition to the table.
Oh Mumma, please, don’t go ahead and start doing everything by yourself because that will make you go crazy and the other members lazy. Delegate chores to everyone, be the leader that you are. Kids will love the change.
Take some me-time
You are used to the me-time and clearly, you’re not getting any. Find a way to reach out for it though. Spend some time doing what you like, where you feel like yourself. Be mindful of not getting lost in your chores.
Don’t allow the learning to stop
Keep learning new recipes, keep teaching your kids new tactics or activities but do not let this time make you feel bored and stagnant. Keep learning even if it’s something as small as playing board games with your kids.
