The world is shaken by the catastrophe that has jinxed the earth with a deadly virus called Covid 19 which has suddenly given a pause to the world with an unstipulated time limit. The abrupt stagnation that this pandemic has brought into the lives of each individual has led to uncertainty leaving people with no other choice but just to sit and wonder what happens next. Ignoring the bucket full of negative impacts, this world is still a better place to look at! here is how -  

As hope has become a lifestyle, optimism is the key for people to better embrace this normal life that was earlier taken for granted. Nature and earth are healing. Birds are chirping like never before, animals are living their lives of contentment, which earlier was like living in a compromise in a human build space, and now in their own spaces with lively spirits of nature which they always longed for. Psychological health is not only important for humans but equally noticeable in animals too. The environment is clean, with fewer pollution levels than ever before, dolphins and fishes swaying to the beats of joy in water bodies which were always crumbled in their essence because of pollution by humans.

People can and should psychologically try to be in a healthy state to enforce a positive aura and vibrations in the atmosphere and in a way can consider being stuck as reparation to the environment. The replacement of negative thoughts with positive by because the earlier due to a lot of congestion of traffic, pollution by factories, CFCs, etc. had impacted lives of flora and fauna in a huge amount every year, humans lost lives in accidents, rapes, murders, and other crimes. This has come to a halt and people have been given a self-introspective space and time in the form of lockdown when one can reflect upon the doings of oneself and others and come out to be someone who has a greater value of life, environment one is blessed with, the importance of family, relations, love, social circle, and monetary management.

This is also affecting the cognitive being of humans, as now the mindset is getting more inclined towards expenditure on health-related items; secure health insurance and life than on mere materialistic items, and excessive fast and entertainment dominant lifestyle.

This also implies the essence of a quote which people usually keep up to books only, that is you live only once, make sure it is to the fullest. In the rat race of making money, usually, people had left behind their relations, and time to think about what people want, feel, and what will make them the happiest. This is the break from the race and fast life, where people can realize the significance of what they were running for. The feelings of animosity, jealousy, betrayal, etc. have to be given a reality check too. And this is the way each one would realize that there’s nothing vital than the health of oneself and others important in their lives, and this is the time where one can realize that ‘health is wealth’.

The trend of saving money for the future, planning for the future, and losing the pace of time today will surely observe an insightful transformation in the mindset of people today. Future investment in gold and other precious metals, properties, and social pressure of big fat weddings is not needed, and this is being discerned today. Thinking of those families, parents who were reluctant to feel the joy of a baby girl in the family only because she has to be married one day with lots of money invested in the wedding rituals, no longer will this brunt be felt, thus shaping society better.

People used to feel like having a break from their busy work or study schedules, procrastinating work, and know that everything is halted, people realize the importance of being busy and how important working is and more than that maintaining a balance between work and leisure.

One needs to live in present and not the future, people to match the lifestyle in the competitive world, were in a habit to spend more than their earnings by deferring payments, taking loans with a surety to pay them in the future, these people are in debts today. This gives another lesson to imbibe which is to carefully manage one’s lifestyle in the accordance with what one earns to have a peaceful life. As real happiness doesn’t lie in materialistic fame and life but only in the peace and stability of mind. People will now know how to better take care of their mental health and be satisfied with what one has. There were times when people had stopped realizing the importance and savoring joy in what they have but were only busy chasing what they don’t. This is the time when people have started finding joy in those little things which were earlier bluntly ignored. People are learning to be happy without having junk food, but simply enjoying the beauty and love of homemade food’s fragrance. Having a reality check that we have not lost the normal life but we have lost an aspect of the life that was just surface-based, fake, and negative which we simply assumed to be important but in reality, it is vain.

This is the time which has impacted our psychological being hugely yet at the same time has made sure that we learn how to take care of our mental health in the best manner in the upcoming years which will surely be much beautiful, love-filled and principally peaceful than ever before. We have been awakened from the deep sleep of a mirage that was not making the quality of our mental health anyway better and now we are trying to live a real-life and build a better future and live more humanely. Being humans we had forgotten how to reflect humanity, which is now being restored in the divine or nature’s grueling way.

Thus it is strongly believed that our well-being is much more than we can see and feel, it is in our hands how to design this canvas of mind in its best framework even in the most baffling, exigent, and strenuous times like it is now.
