Happy Vibes Spreading: My 8th letter to my Grandchildren documenting lessons from COVID-19 times

My dearest grandchild, 

Memories are treasures we can pass on to our progeny through mediums like these letters beta for you to have first-hand access to our times and right now we are weaving many such though difficult, yet unique memories. Having hit hard by the COVID19,  today is our 22nd day being stranded away from home locked indoors, the biggest challenge at hand is to keep ourselves motivated and happy against all odds and I guess it is the same for all 1.38 billion people in India. 

By nature, man is a social creature who loves meeting people and moving around. That is what keeps us rejoiced but when both of them are denied our mental equilibrium goes for a toss. So what all are we doing to keep the balance as much as possible?

I am the kind of person who loves spreading happy vibes wherever I can. It comes naturally to me and now I am making a conscious effort to further improve upon it. Spreading happiness around by in general staying cheerful, cracking jokes, giving genuine compliments and occasional hugs are some simple ways to enhance our precious bond with your loved ones. I call it happy vibes motivation. When everyone in the family is happy is smiling, we ensure happy hormones secrete in their bodies and ensure their good physical and mental health.

A little extra effort and care mean a lot in this traumatic time. I am also taking out one hour every day to touch base with at least two friends or family members and spreading the happy vibes to them, cheering them to battle the vicious circumstances like a pro. We can either crib about the situation and panic or rise from the ashes and tame the times to the best of our abilities with a smile. This is yet another lesson these times have taught us. 

You know we attract the kind of energy that we currently possess further. Bear this in mind at all times my child. Fight the situation head-on and work on solutions. Hold on to the ray of hope and don’t give up and the sun shall soon shine brighter in your life. Positivity and staying happy has a lot of impact on our lives. We are currently tuning in to a lot of comedy shows and movies too in leisure and giggle together and in our me-time, we mostly read books. For my me time, I mostly read e-books on my kindle and I am glad that’s the only delivery Amazon has not stopped, and meditate with positive affirmations to channelize my inner strength in the right direction.

It is a pleasure seeing how people have devoted their lockdown times on nurturing their hobbies like painting, cooking, etc and my timelines are flooded with them. That’s definitely yet another way of spreading happy vibes. 

I really wish our brothers and sisters from the poor strata who are daily wagers have got the necessary help too and are keeping their sanity alive. I keep them in my prayers forever. I hope more relief reaches them as I am not sure if the national lockdown shall end on 14th April as decided or not as the number of cases are growing drastically. Staying positive and happily motivated is all we can do, my dear, and trust me when I say this, each one of us is giving his best shot. 

Sending your way a lot of happy vibes
Your Granny
