AFTERMATH OF QUARANTINE
You all must be aware of the terms(“COVID19″|”QUARANTINE”|”LOCKDOWN”).
I think it would be apt not to waste your precious time in explaining these terms to the renowned whatsapp graduates.
This blog contains a roadmap on how one can efficiently and productively utilize his\her precious time during this 21 day lockdown period which is likely to be extended for another month or so.
CRUNCH ON STUDENTS
Covid-19 aur popularly assumed as “China-virus” came in as a blessing in disguise for lakhs of student appearing for their board examinations.
It was welcomed with a mixed feeling of postponement and further delay in achieving the much awaited “aazadi” .
However,when we consider the broader image there are school closures of some kind in 22 countries on three continents with hundreds of millions of students around the world facing upheaval, including 13 countries that have shut schools nationwide. The United Nations has warned of the unparalleled scale and speed of the educational disruption being caused by coronavirus. While UNESCO confirms it has disrupted the education of at least 290.5 million students.
ONE THING WHICH WE KNOW FOR SURE IS THAT WE WILL KEEP MAKING “MAYMAYS”TILL OUR LAST BREATHYOUTH OF 21st CENTURY
THE 21/90 RULE: HOW TO TURN HABITS INTO LIFESTYLE
The 21/90 rule – implies that it takes 21 days to build or break a habit and 90 days to create a lifestyle .We are in a 21 day lockout system and it is the right time to apply it.
Don’t we all want to implement little things that will make us happier and more successful?
1]Identify the habit you want to make or break
Grab your journal or write down in the notes on your phone “In 21 days I am no longer going to be grabbing sweets before bed”.
2]Stick with it; it is just 21 days!
I never said it was going to be easy, if you have a bad habit you are trying to break you are going to be uncomfortable the first week when you tell yourself NO! But, stick with it! In the bigger picture, you can force yourself to do something for 21 days and see significant results or continue with your daily habit and never change a thing.
Fight through the discomfort, stay on track and be persistent. Look back at the reasons you need to do this and the big .WHY when you feel discouraged. You got this!
3]Check in on your results + make a motto
Nearing the end of the 21 days, I want you to take an honest look at the results you see so far. Don’t be hard on yourself if they are not super drastic, but take note of any changes in your journal. If you are trying to quit caffeine, maybe the first two weeks were challenging, and you felt quite gross and suffered a few nasty headaches, but now, nearing the end of the 21 days, you wake up feeling energized naturally, and you don’t crave that cup of joe.
Make yourself a motto that you can tell yourself when times get tough in the future. Because even when the 21 days are up you need to take the momentum and move it forward. You have nearly a month under your belt, why stop now?
(My motto is “Fitness is a lifestyle, not a diet, punishment or something to resent.“)
No more headings?! FREEDOM!!!!
