Looking at the title, you must have thought that I meant ”Love in the time of Corona” and that this was a story read a story about love during this hard time of the widespread of the virus and the increasing cases worldwide. However, I am sorry to disappoint you, this piece is not about a love story but about our new way of life with the Corona.
Reduce your time outside and try to use this time to cook healthy food and only go out when necessary. Make your environment a comfortable and peaceful space. Don’t let this hard time bring out the worst in you. You may not be able to touch people and hug them but you can video call them and reach out to them and tell them how much they mean to you. Again, we don’t know what is going to happen next but we have to be prepared.
I am sure you are all reading much news about the virus and the crazy number of deaths but try to be picky and gather the relevant facts and avoid ruminating on information that is out your control. Stress hurts the immune system too. Make sure you make healthy food and also focus on your mental health and choose uplifting content and don’t focus on uncertainties. Don’t forget to share virtual acts of kindness, face-time a friend, listen to music with a dear person through Skype or any means of online communication, text your loved ones and tell them how much you care about them and just comfort them. Your words can truly help.
