Today is day 23 (April 10, 2020) of being at home. These three days feel so bizarre and abnormal. I didn’t really do much. I started reading a book, and I played a few games on my phone.
^ I worked on my mandala for a couple of hours. This is the second mandala I have ever attempted. But, I did like the way it turned out. There are a lot of mistakes in this mandala as well, though. I did lose patience quite a few times and was often hasty. Maybe as I practice more of these, I’ll get better. I am sticking to the basic designs because I don’t know how to draw complicated ones, yet.
I’m still struggling with my sleep schedule, and I don’t know what to do about it.
But I’m thoroughly enjoying reading a book and not really doing much. I finally feel like the pressure is off. The need for trying to make every minute of the day count. I think I’ve finally made my peace with not being productive every minute of every day. I’m enjoying watching YouTube vlogs and listening to podcasts.
I’ve also realised that I can pass the time very easily. It’s just this feeling of not doing “productive things” that got to me.
What are you all doing?
How have you all been passing the time?
I hope all of you are safe and healthy in your house. I hope you’re all washing your hands regularly and are all practising social distancing.
I hope you’re all not wasting water because we don’t want this pandemic to lead to another worldwide natural disaster: water scarcity. I hope you’re all exercising at home.
And I hope you all are avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
I understand that it can get a little irritating.
It can feel like you’re stuck within four walls but try to focus on the positives and work on yourself and better yourself so we can all fight this together and resume our lives as soon as possible.
