With the pandemic and the gloomy stories regarding the losses coming out, Manish says that it is obvious that people are going to get impacted. While some people might be able to deal with these negative triggers, some might not. Hence, he feels people should take up something nice like meditation or reading books, so that they can hone their skills while staying indoors. He even recalled how all the negativity around him had started to affect him too and stressed that being positive is the only way to stay fine.
As Manish mentioned, “Over the last two months, television and social media have been flooded with critical stories and pleads for help. While I have been working hard to help all those in need, the negative news around me took a slight toll on me. I am a very sensitive person, so it was hard for me not to be overwhelmed by all that was happening around and either could I avoid such news. In times like this meditation has really helped in keeping my mind calm. Trust me, it is the best therapy, whenever I hear any disheartening news, I just try to keep myself normal through meditation. Apart from this, I have also developed the habit of reading novels. We have to pass this crucial time by staying indoors, so it’s better to hone our skills and make this period fruitful.”
