Here's How to Make the Best of Your Time during Coronavirus Quarantine

Posted: March 18, 2020

With what seems like the whole world on lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar offers his wisdom on how to make the most of this time of social distancing and isolation. 

Now this is the time you are all locked up in your homes, in your rooms. 

1. Make use of this time to do meditation. Do not miss meditation. Every day twice or thrice, sit and meditate.

2. This is the time you can acquire more knowledge

3. This is the time you can acquire more skills. You can learn more languages, you can do yoga

You can do many things which you do in your recreation time. Nobody asks what I should do on my vacation! You will find something to do. Now this time, instead of going out for vacation, you sit and read books--there is so much knowledge in them. Watch television, where so much knowledge and wisdom is available. Listen to music. Learn music. You can do a million things...

There is no point in sitting and getting depressed, reading the same old news again and again and getting more worked up. No need. You can chat with people. There are so many people who are not happy and are upset. You can uplift them, their mood, by talking. Use social media. This is the time to use social media more. 

Why don’t you just slow down, calm down, and cool down for a few days. You have that ability, don’t forget that. You have the ability to just let go and that more!
