With WFH being the new normal, I felt that Sundays have lost their charm and popularity. The only difference between Sunday and the other weekdays was the laptop – no emails, no tasks, and no meetings. Rest? the same Netflix, the same home-cooked food, and the same routine of staring at the four walls of the house! These feelings were constant throughout the lockdown and the only thing which kept changing was the dates.
With boredom hitting me hard, I started adapting my old habit of reading books to keep myself occupied. In one of the books, I read a quote and that made me think about the boredom differently! After digging my head, I realized, that it was my mindset, which was making me feel bored. Despite the restrictions, arent their endless possibilities to try something new? I am looking at the wall and thinking the wall is boring! cant I change the wall and make it interesting? what is stopping me?! when I have time and creativity, then what else is stopping me!?
That’s when, my inner voice made me realize, its the mindset. If I lock my mind to think about what cannot be done, I will end up being bored and worn out. Instead of focusing on what cannot be done, why not focus on what can be done and make the best use of the time!
I don’t know if WFH is going to be permanent or not, but the time that I have with me, the golden time of being at home, and saving so much of time and energy is not going to come back. Why not look at the endless possibilities instead of cribbing about staying at home! Think about it 🙂 #UnlockPositivity
