It takes little to keep ourselves full of hope and dispel negativity during this pandemic, says Acharya Vinod Kumar OJHA
We are living in a stress-driven era and with the ongoing novel Coronavirus pandemic, every other thing is surrounded by negativity. Whether it is a news channel or social media, there is not a single space that seems positive. In such a scenario, even the positive people turn pessimists and lose spirit. Though, these are tough times and getting depressed or tense is normal, but remember that if our spirits are high and strengthened, then we can face any unforeseen situation with elan. The best way to keep ourselves full of hope and ward off negativity during this time is to follow the steps below:
Repeat Positive Affirmations:
Affirmations are a few words or phrases that are repeated to fulfill a desire. It is said that our mind responds to signals and starts accepting what we think. This means that if we repeat or think about good things, then ultimately our intellect will respond to it.
One of the easiest and effective ways of warding off negative thoughts is to chant ‘Om’ whenever you feel anxious or stressed out. Just remember to look for a peaceful place and devote your entire focus to chanting.
Lemons for Positivity:
Though we can’t control what’s going on outside but can manage the things at our home. Lemons are the best solution to keep negativity at bay and these are easily available in everyone’s home. Just keep 2-3 lemons in a glass bottle filled with water in your bedroom or your living room to attract positivity. It is said that lemons and water absorb any negative vibe and helps in healing.
Salt for Strengthening:
Done with all the bad news? Relax and add salt to the water while cleaning. It is said that salt cleanses the negative aura and brings positivity, focus, and prosperity to the family.
Let the Music Play:
Music is a therapy and can help you in your direst need. Put your headphones on and just rejuvenate for some time.
Recite Hanuman Chalisa:
Reciting Hanuman Chalisa will calm your mind and gives your strength. It will help you in overcoming nightmares.
Light Some Sage:
Burning of sage can fill the atmosphere with alacrity and can give you some moments of peace. Burn sage while performing worship and let the fragrance changes the mood.
Shut the social media:
One of the main reasons for the restlessness and instability of emotions is social media. When you get away from negativity, it won’t haunt you. So, the best trick to stay strong and don’t lose your mind in these tough times is getting away from social media.
Follow these simple remedies and keep your spirits high. The time is crucial but together we have to fight this together.
