Employee welfare during lockdown

Employee welfare at Tattva

Wellness starts at home… and we have complete faith in it. While we were finding new ways to connect with our audience and keep our promise of wellness sacred, we also watched out for our employees. Sitting at home for the past couple of months has drained everyone’s zeal to work. Managing the household chores while on a conference call is really a task. To avoid brain fog Tattva is developing various activities to engage with its employees.

To start with, we first circulated a questionnaire asking them what it that they are missing the most is. It was unusual to see that all of them were missing coming to office but also heartwarming to see them missing the office. It is not an everyday sight, you see! And when we compiled the answers, it was their evening tea-time that was most cherished. So we came up with an interactive engagement session ‘Snack time with Tattva’. We pick a day, and everyone is asked to grab a cup of coffee/tea and any munchies. We gather and ‘hangout’. 🙂

Conference call at virtual office

A bunch of activities we did to break the monotony.

Tattva titles

As Tattva turned 7 in March 2020, we were excited to celebrate this milestone. We didn’t let the tumultuous times like these snatch away our fun. The voting for titles that was a part of the celebration was then conducted online through a poll. This was a fun activity and surely did its part when it came to bonding with the team. The titles were unconventionally named like, ‘Early bird of Tattva’, ‘Chill-pill of the company’ and so on.

Tambola time at Tattva

When the activity was initiated, everyone was clueless what is in store for them. The activity began with a questionnaire where questions related to 10th standard marks, 12th standard marks, number of dishes experimented in lockdown, birth date, favourite number, etc were asked. The answers to all the questions are numbers between 1 to 90. On the day of the activity everyone was given their ticket for Tambola. And as the answers were announced, numbers on tickets were strike out.

Never have I ever

You all remember playing this game with a glass in your hand and sitting with a group of friends. This time there was no glass and only virtual group, but still a lot of fun. Everyone was asked to take a break from their work and analyze their lockdown life. The current situation has made everyone do something that they wouldn’t have done it otherwise, like cooking or washing dishes. Or pursue a hobby.

Tattva workforce sending out message

Several other activities were conducted for Tattva’s spa associates. Having on their feet always, sudden lockdown hit quite hard to our therapists and managers. To keep them motivated and positive fitness activities were conducted. Initiatives like cooking competition, recording message for the guests, and for each other, sharing their fitness routine were also edged.

Apart from the fun part and creating a space for everyone to stay safe, mentally and emotionally, we at Tattva are very much inclined towards personal hygiene. Frequent communications have been circulated regarding the importance of hygiene of themselves and their surroundings, practices everyone should adapt and constantly assuring them that they are still a part of the organization.

Working from home sooner or later turns into working at home and makes a person lazy and non-productive.  With our initiatives we tend to maintain the positivity in the minds of all our associates. Internet has made it even easier to create a perfect virtual workspace at home while having the right balance between our work and personal life.

The Science of Pure Air

As the lockdown have started to relieve in certain parts of the country, the air quality is bound to reduce with increased pollution. It comes as no surprise that air quality index in metro cities was only bearable, if not at its best. Emissions of harmful pollutants will only worsen the urban air. Ultimately leading to breathing issues to the city people or causing discomfort.

While we speak about planet fitness, it is equally important to pay attention to the deteriorating air quality index. The environmental pollution leads to health issues that can’t be overlooked. We can look out for best air purifier for our homes, but what’s better than going all natural! Here are some tips to keep air at your home clean and germ free.

Essential oils

While we have always thought of essential oils for a rejuvenating massage, it has other benefits too. . It is no surprise that people often search for essential oils for skin or hair, knowing little how useful it is to clean the air around. Previously we have spoken about how essential oils put your senses to calm. Remember stepping in a Tattva Spa? How all the aroma packed in air immediately rushed to your brain, putting your mind at rest. That’s one of the qualities of an essential oil. Wondering how to use this product to clean your air? Firstly, make sure to use high quality pure essential oils for maximum benefit.

What essential oils should you use to improve air quality at home?It is very important to know what kind of essential oils for diffuser are best to improve air quality. While some oils like lavender, thyme, tea tree are best for the purpose, others may release volatile organic compounds when diffused, causing trouble to the asthmatic patients.

How do these help?

Tattva Spa is a pioneer when it comes to good quality essential oils. With the oil palette of five essential oils we tend to serve our guests with the most relaxing massages in a pure environment. As a part of our Vimukti oil’s combination, Lavender & Thyme are well known for its curing properties. Lavender is a natural soother and its antimicrobial properties have proven to fight the airborne environmental irritants within a span of 30-60 minutes. Thyme, on the other hand purifies the air allergens in normal environment that we often don’t feel.

Indoor plants

How can we not mention indoor plants when talking about natural air purifier. Poor indoor air quality can have quite a few effects on your health like sore throat, congestion, sinus irritation, itchy skin and watery eyes. Not only our body but our mind also gets negatively impacted. With limited access to healthy walks in park and fresh air, indoor plants for bedroom or other parts of home are the best air purifier. And we, at Tattva Spa, have full hands down to that option.

What indoor plants are best for improving air quality?

Placing houseplants at different spots in your home is a real thing. You might not witness a sudden change in air quality but gradually you’ll start feeling that the air is as good as the natural air one might get in the habitat. There are multiplicities of indoor plants that act as the air cleaning plants like – English Ivy, Bamboo Palm, Peace Lily, Aloe Vera, Rubber Plant, and the list is too long. You can begin by adopting the most popular houseplants – Snake Plant and Weeping Fig.

How do these help?

There have been many studies to prove how some plants have the ability to clean the air inside our homes. They can survive with minimal sunlight and just the appropriate water. We all are aware how plants are extremely adept in absorbing gases through their leaves. The studies by researchers claim gas absorbing capacity of some plants includes not only carbon dioxide but also volatile organic compounds. This makes them qualify to be a natural air purifier.

While you clean the indoor air at your home, these elements would surely add to your décor as well.

 

 

Is your skin healthy?

‘How you feel is what you reflect.’ We have heard this statement many times. But never paid attention to the insight it gives us. It is difficult to stay positive in these times where you are restricted to go out, and are always surrounded by negative news. This can be seen on your face.

When we say ‘Follow these easy steps for bright skin’ we do not mean a fairer skin. The colour is not important, health is. The major component of a healthy skin is the natural glow you radiate from within.

There are many habits that affect our skin over the time; we often don’t realize how our urban lifestyle is stealing the charm from your skin:

  • Dehydration– we take our body’s hydrating capacity for granted. Intake of fewer liquids, especially in India’s summer season actively encourages the body to several problems, one of them being unhealthy skin.
  • Poor diet– with our uncertain lifestyle, our body tries to adapt to the changes but it has its own limitations.
  • Sleep deprivation– Late night binging on Netflix and negative thoughts are taking over our sleep cycle, resulting in dark circles, not-so-fresh skin and open pores
  • Stress – We understand that uncertainty of our jobs, and most importantly our lives is constantly ticking in our minds, giving stress to our mind, affecting our body, and reflecting in our skin.
  • Environment – This factor is certainly not something you can take control of, but you can practice a DIY routine to avoid a larger effect on your skin. In a dry weather like summers our skin loses its charm by extracting natural moisture of the skin.

How to cure dull skin?

Dull skin is mainly the lack of radiance or an uneven tone. You might feel your skin is way too tight sometimes or have open pores. This is all due to your negligence towards it. A couple of small changes in your routine habits can make a big difference to your skin. Let’s get you your luminous glow back by following below steps:

  • Drink lots of liquids, preferably water, one glass every hour.
  • Be mindful of what you’re eating. Add more vegetables to your meal to increase the intake of skin loving nutrients and antioxidants.
  • Binge on fruits that are naturally rich in nutrients instead of cookies and cupcakes. For a healthy start to your day explore smoothies with seasoned fruits.
  • Get your beauty sleep in place. We understand how stress has taken over your mind and sleep. Best way to relax your mind before you go to sleep is practice Yoga Nidra. You can view Tattva Spa’s guide to a healthy sleep and waking up fresh.
  • Know what’s best for your skin. Use rose water or face wash to regularly wash your face. Remember not to overuse these products. You can also go all-natural by applying aloe-vera, raw potato, raw tomato and other organic elements.

Better Sleep = Strong Immunity

Sleep, playing one of the major traits for our immunity, is still overlooked as a luxury by some. The times of social distancing, school interruptions, quarantines, work-from-home has led to anxiety disturbing sleep cycles for a vast majority of us. It has not been a secret that many corporates and organizations are filtering their staff and as they do, the thought of job security and finance management sidles onto our mind affecting the overall wellbeing.

The theme for this year’s World Sleep Day (it was celebrated on March 18) underlines the need of the hour “

  • Body fatigue
  • No mindfulness in diet plan
  • Feel tired and sleepy during day
  • Increased moments of day dreaming
  • Irritated behaviour towards everyone
  • Unhappy soul

All the above symptoms are result of lack of quality sleep.

Tattva Spa is the best spa in India offering wellness therapies across its 62 spas. Our services are well researched and our massages help boost immunity in addition to relaxing your tired body. Here’s how:

  • Kneading and pressing back muscles relaxes your spinal cord which is tensed through the daily chores.
  • The very famous ‘gliding rubs to the legs’ focuses on the areas of tight muscle fibers.
  • Massaging both sides of spine and hips reduces the firmness from body, allowing it to flex.
  • Kneading the oblique muscles to help bend the trunk of the body.

With the unfortunate closure of our spas we are not available in person to help you relax. But through our wellness webinar series AnyBody Can Massage, Episode 4 and Episode 5 our experts talk about how anxiety and world of technology have taken over our sweet dreams. With few acupressure points in our thumb and wrist, we might not make you feel sleepy, but this will certainly help in relaxing your mind of any stress. However, these are not the only techniques that will help you.

We often miss the prime suspect of any irregularities in our body – breathing. Yes, a little discomfort in breathing makes your mind restless and has other major effects on your body. Balancing the energy points through breathing and concentration took us through a journey of meditation while we tried to remove the blockages from our energy points through focused breathing. Yoga Nidra combined with this breathing technique – nothing can be a better solution to your stressed mind and disturbed sleep.

What is Yoga Nidra? How does it help in better sleep?

Often termed as ‘yogic sleep’, it is a state of consciousness where your body and mind are at rest and very relaxed. Through Yoga Nidra you get more aware about your inner self by providing a space to explore your long-held emotions and releasing all the negative energies.

Did you miss the sessions? Watch it on our YouTube channel as our experts take you through the Yoga Nidra experience and help you discover the energy points in your body.

Good night, sleep well!

Stressed before going to bed? As much as we enjoyed work-from-home in the early stage, now the concept is growing exponentially, and everlasting. The covid-19 lifestyle has not only affected our diet or exercise routine, but has a vigilant effect on our sleep cycle as well.

Bedroom is your place of retreat from all the problems and world troubles. You engage all your efforts in decorating your bedroom space, so you can come back to a place that comforts you. With the lockdown, our bedroom has become not only a place to sleep but also, work and eat. This is not healthy! It is important that we don’t let these thoughts disrupt our sleep sanctuary.

Here are few tips that might be helpful to structure your sleep graph and flatten that curve:

Daytime tips

  • Avoid intake of caffeine or alcohol, especially later in the day. This will just create a disparity in your sleep cycle.
  • Watch out for an intense workout later in the evening. Develop a routine for your lifestyle to set your body in rhythm. Don’t skip meals; eat in time, even on weekends get up at your usual time.
  • Taking naps in middle of the day keeps you awake till late in the night. Simply because you’ve already slept for hours before.

Night tips

  • Take the first yawnin the later evening as an alarm. That’s your body telling you that it’s tired and needs some rest.
  • Your bedroom shall only serve as a place to sleep. Avoid using phone or watching screensbefore you sleep. Dim the light, set the temperature, read something good before you put yourself to bed.
  • Watching your phone time-to-time will only distract you from sleeping. Clear your headbefore your sleep.
  • Before going to sleep wash your feet with warm water. Warm water on feetdoes more wonders than the hot milk in your stomach.
  • It’s never too late to realize if you’re not able to sleep. Whenever you are into that sought, get up and accomplish a light task like reading a book, meditation or yoga.

Remember how your senses come to calm at our spa?  The job was partially done by the aroma of essential oils. Our sense of smell is unswervingly connected to our brain, administering emotions.

Essential oils and aromatic wax candles can be helpful for disrupted sleep and improve sleep quality.

Take cue from Remedies to Roll Night Time by Neal’s Yard Remedies and Calm Mogra Soy Wax Candle by Omved for natural and organic products.

  • Spray some essential oil in the air before going to sleep or near your pillow.
  • Mix few drops in your evening bath.
  • You can also apply it directly on your skin, giving a quick massage to your arms and legs.
  • Light the candles and fill the air with aroma.

Let’s prepare for the sleep while Tattva wishes you a good night.

 

Get ‘Back’ in Action

The relentless, never-ending home chores have taken a toll on our back. With the increasing activities of the household, the stress is also increasing, eventually traveling to our backs. “How to relieve back pain” was the most asked question in Tattva’s reach out to our audience on “What do they want to learn in massage and acupressure techniques?”

When we researched, we found that about 80% of middle-aged experience lower back pains and we immediately set ourselves on a mission to try to solve this for the world – remotely, through our wellness webinar series AnyBody Can Massage.

Now, this pain is not the only cause of jhadoo-pochhaa effect. There are many reasons behind it that we often overlook:

  • Not many of us have a reliable work station setup at home. We are either turning our bedroom space into the work space or the living area our work stop. This results in an inappropriate sitting posture and finally giving stress to our back muscles.
  • Even if our back manages to bear the stress we are giving it through bad sitting posture, the constant movement of work-from-home to work-at-home is not giving us an optimum time to give it a rest.
  • In the wake of staying fit and healthy, we are trying to keep up with our workout routine, and sometimes, we stretch our muscles. Eventually stressing our back muscles.
  • Pregnancy puts a way lot weight on your back.

While there are many tips and exercise you’ll find on the internet to deal with your pains instantly, Tattva Spa is here to guide you on the paracetamol points that our body has, for self-healing.

There are several points on our fingers and our hands and feet that manipulate the pains in our body. Through acupressure we can work on those points and get our body in right shape, health wise. In our previous webinar we have spoken and demonstrated the points that are best answer for “How to curb the pains in upper and lower back”. Couldn’t catch up on the webinar? View the summary and detailed videos on our YouTube channel.

Before you practice these points you must know that these are surely some magic points, but magic takes its own time to work.

 

Lack of sleep, or shall we say quality sleep, directly affects our body and mind. This could be one big reason for your body to not to be able to recharge itself. In our upcoming webinar AnyBody Can Massage, Episode #4 : Yoga Nidra for Immunity, our experts will talk about how we can relax our mind to put it to sleep.

 

Wellness for your home – Beyond jhadoo pochha

While we all focus on our personal hygiene (and quite excessively in these times), we miss out on the real culprit and source of viral and bacterial infections – our homes!

We know you ensure regular cleaning and sanitizing of the home, but you might be amazed at what all you have been missing. As always, it’s all about the detailing.

Here is our list of specific areas in the home environment that we know you might be missing out on completely sanitizing:

Utensils

Washing the dishes is one the cleaning jobs that people are not very keen on taking up, especially when you have to wash those stubborn oil stained kadhais. With the magic of baking soda your job is half done and its bliss. Here’s how:

  • Take 3 portions of baking soda and 1 portion water.
  • Make a paste.
  • Use a kitchen sponge to wash your stainless steel utensils with it.
  • You’ll be amazed to see how great it works on the utensils, leaving an incomparable shine.

If you get ample sun-light in your kitchen, allow the utensils to dry in the sunlight well before stuffing them back into drawers and racks. Any moisture that enters your drawers and storage areas makes that area fertile for virus and bacteria to thrive. Avoid it!

Kitchen sink

We often enter the kitchen with a thought “everything but kitchen sink”. With the leftovers in your plate or the cooking utensils the sink gets clogged, making the spoons and forks float. This is not a very good sight, we agree! Drainex is always out of stock right! We’ve got you covered. Follow the below recipe to unclog sink drains and free flowing:

  • Baking soda with vinegar can be a real trick. Just know the right way of using it.
  • The fizz reaction that the combination has, helps in cleaning the clogged sinks.
  • Pour 2 table spoons baking soda in the sink, followed by 4 table spoons of white vinegar.
  • Cover the drain and let the combo perform its trick for 30 minutes.

Pour some hot water to clean the remains.

Fridge hygiene

Technology, if not managed (we mean cleaned), can be the biggest harbinger of adversities! No, we aren’t exaggerating. Think for yourself, how often do you clean your fridge shelves, the side door or the fruit basket or the freezer cabinet, the ice trays? Being an essential part of our kitchen and our food, it is very important keep it germ free. For fridge cleaning we will not provide a cleanser recipe, but a small tip. We usually take out the shelves, clean them with soap and place it back in the fridge. While you do so, take a sprinkler and pour a solution of vinegar and water. Spray the solution on the inside of fridge doors and inner walls.

 Note: To further deodorize the fridge before you restock your food, place a hot cup of black coffee in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

Curtains

Yes, that large piece of designer curtain that is your window’s friend to keep away strong light, heat and cold. Curtains are often forgotten in regular cleaning and that’s also partly because it is cumbersome to remove, wash / dry-clean and then put back on and also dealing with the naked feeling when the curtains are absent. Curtains absorb dust and mold and if left un-attended for long, can also become homes of tiny lizards. Yes, we do intend to scare you.

  • We recommend using light sheers or cotton based curtains instead of the heavy ones unless blocking light is a key need for the room. Lighter cloth is easier and cheaper to manage.
  • Keep two sets for each window and keep rotating – It’s a good change of scene for the room too
  • If you have heavy curtains, you could do the dry-cleaning twice a year – we recommend October and April as the months to undertake this. In between, take out that vacuum cleaner and get it swooshing the curtains
  • Use some fabric spray occasionally for mild disinfection and to get rid of odors if any

Plants

As much as we love green around us we often do not meet the care and concern they demand. Grooming and moving is an essential part of their lifestyle. For house plants, it is suggested that they are arranged in different pots every six months. And while you do that, here are some tips you should consider:

  • Water your plant lightly before repotting.
  • Get rid of the rotten and dead leaves and roots.
  • Gently move the plant from bottom to loosen the living roots – use these to prepare compost.
  • Whenever performing this activity, make sure you repot in a slightly bigger pot.

Taking care of plants in it is a relaxing activity. Do it often if you like.

Mosquitoes

With the weather changing its colors from winters to spring and eventually summers, brings along the mosquito menace. For people who own plants at home, mosquitoes are the frequent guest. While some of you would prefer using a repellant, we strongly suggest you to try a homemade remedy. Charcoal based mosquito repellants have a very strong smoke & odor that is not healthy for people with breathing issues. However, dried Neem leaves, camphor and boiled garlic are a few very strong enemies of mosquitoes. You could burn small quantities of either of these natural mosquito repellants in early evening time in open areas for best repellant effect.

Un-tech & Untangle – Your Spa fix in Lockdown

Technology is an enabler in our daily lives. While the latest gadgets and devices are making our lives more organized, making the world a smaller place and helping us solve more problems, faster, they are also causing high amount of strain onto our physical and psychological selves.

Our mental health is getting acutely affected with close exposure the “Instagram” version of people’s lives. That feeling of ‘inadequacy’ or desire to lead a more ‘fun life’ can cause unprecedented strain on our emotional capabilities.

On an average, we are probably spending 11 hours of a day staring at some kind of screen, be it laptop, TV or your cell phone. We usually begin our day with one screen and end while watching another. Our travel time is also our screen time (of course we are referring to the pre-lockdown times). Our human bodies were not designed for handling such large screen times. It will probably take our bodies another 100,000 years to adapt to the change that has impacted our bodies swiftly over the last decade or so.

In pre-covid times, we would have advised you to visit our spas to take a break from technology and find some rejuvenating me-time with a massage or a spa facial. Our guests have been asking us “Where can I get a massage in lockdown”? Tattva Spa centres are currently closed and we are doing the next best thing. We are sharing with you some simple hacks of acupressure and massage techniques that you could do yourself at home. Tattva’s wellness webinar series – AnyBody Can Massage is already helping a lot of our regular guests with well-researched and effective DIY acupressure techniques. Our second episode, Un-Tech & Un-tangle focused on dealing with puffy or dry eyes, headaches, tired ears, aching wrists etc. Basically, we addressed all the issues arising from over-exposure to technology. Our DIY AnyBody Can Massage videos are also live on out YouTube Channel.

 

Stay tuned for more exciting, informative and educative self-care, wellness webinar episode of AnyBody Can Massage, every Saturday at 11 AM. Upcoming episode #3 is “Back” in Action where we will be sharing simple hacks to relieve the aching backs to get your up and running. Join us via Zoom or simply join us on Facebook Live. See you there?

 

Be Safe & Be well.

Eat your water in summers – stay hydrated!

Water

Up to 60% of human adult body is water; hence it demands more hydration in this season. As we approach the grishm hritu or the summer season, our body demands more water. Experts suggest that our diet should have 50% – 60% of water content to meet the needs of our body. Our body uses water to maintain its bodily functions and maintain the body temperature. It loses water through breathing, sweating, digestion and other physical activities. It’s important to rehydrate by drinking fluids regularly.

Lack of water affects one’s health; skin being no exception. Dehydration leads to dry skin, making the fine lines visible, dullness to the skin and deteriorating skin texture. Having said this, drinking excess water may also cause harm to our brain cells. Our kidneys get rid of the excess water every hour. Our lifestyle is such that we might skip regular intake of water in a day. Not to worry, because we’ve got you some tips for eating your water. To make sure your body is hydrated, include the below in your food habits.

Low fat yogurt

Ice creams and frozen yogurt have been summer favorites for everyone. Apart from being a rich source of calcium, proteins and vitamins, yogurt contains more water and is a fuller to stomach. It may come as a surprise to you that it has more than 80% water content. Additionally, it also has probiotics that enhances the gut and leaves your skin glowy.

Salad delight

As cliché as it might sound but salads are a very good source of vitamins and iron. With more than 95% water content veggies like cucumber, radish, and tomatoes make the best choice to be added in your salad plate. A small bowl of salad with fresh vegetables is full of nutritional benefits for your hair, skin and nails.

Fruit popsicles

 

Including fresh juicy fruits in your diet has always been a good idea. The context of these fruits for summers may not be as fresh as they are. The water content in fruits – watermelon, mango, strawberry and musk melon is as high as the calcium and vitamins in them. With no added sugar these can be healthily consumed through a salad or popsicles.

Excess water intake may affect our brain cells and lead to swelling, while lesser intake of water is also harmful. Here are few tips to drink water wisely.

  • The age old recipe of lime water, or popularly known as nimboo pani,is a very healthy drink to boost your body’s immunity in summers and keep it hydrated for long hours. Please be ensured that more than two glasses a day can be overwhelming for your stomach.
  • Lack of water in your body might give you troubled stomach. Beneficial for digestion and rich in vitamin C jaljeera is a perfect remedy in such situations. Add mint leaves to for that extra zing and some extra nutrients in your drink.
  • Buttermilk or the famous Punjab drink lassi is another very good source of hydration. You can even replace a meal with thick sweetened, foam lassi with the biggest glass in home.
  • Not everyone is fond of the sweetened buttermilk, hence, the masala chaach. As the name suggests it is spicy in taste. You can add more carbohydrates, iron and vitamins by adding few curry leaves. You might not see the benefits of this drink immediately but curry leaves help your heart function better and enliven your skin and hair with vitality.
  • Avoid alcohol based drinks. Yes, that’s right! They dehydrate your body, especially brown liquors that have high percentages of alcohol. But, if you must, then opt for Gin & tonic or Vodka & tonic or fruit juiced based liquors like chilled beer (in a limited quantity of course).

Web an ambience of happiness in this lockdown period

Humans and humanity have blended from the past few days to raise the war against COVID-19 . While all the government & medical authorities are taking necessary actions, with the lockdown extending for a few more days has given everyone stress. What are we going to do at home for so many days? How are we going to keep ourselves busy? Well, we suggest that you take a different approach to it. Why not make the best moments in this time that you can cherish later.

Happiness is the cure of every disease and on the other hand panicking creates the sensor of sadness from jubilant vibes. Merely a smile is enough to turn your road of thorns into the carpet of roses. Therefore, it is very important for all of us to web an ambience of happiness in this lockdown period and to impart rejuvenating aura into our nerves so that we can disseminate it in our surroundings. Wondering how? Happiness is an inevitable season.

You were always looking for a break to have a conversation with yourself, weren’t you? This is your time. Revisit your inner self and find the lost you.

  • Unbox the happiness by picking up your pen and writing your heart out. Give wings to your thoughts and pen down the creative clouds surrounding you – through doodling, sketching a comic strip, or through words.
  • Hold your brush and mix your thoughts with colours on canvas. There is nothing more animating than putting your imagination on a piece of paper, so let the artistic juices flow.

  • Release your dance costume from the prison and unshackle your chains by letting your soul dance happily. Practice an old routine or plan an online zumba session with your friends and family.

  • Experiment with the versatile ingredients of your kitchen while you can. Get the masterchef in you into action while there is so much you can cook with the basic ingredients.

  • Bring your instrument from the storeroom and unfurl melody in the air. It’s been a while since you sat with your friends and enjoyed the evening. Well, no one said anything about virtual distancing. Connect with your friends over video call or go live. Let your talent take a spree while you’re on a break.

  • Spend some time with your plants. There is more to gardening than just watering the plants, like getting to know what kinds of plants you own and what other plants can you get for your mini-nursery for the coming season. Did you know there are some plants that can grow even through stems? Grab the opportunity and your gardening gloves and get started!

  • Pamper your skin and add shine to it with homemade remedies. While you’re missing your salon appointments, we suggest you try some home remedies.

Our busy lifestyle has always been a hurdle for spending quality time with our family, and even after living under a single roof, our conversation gaps have increased manifold. This lockdown period is the best opportunity to spend time with your loved ones. Keep your phones aside and sit with your family.

 

Stay home, stay safe and enjoy your quarantine!
