With the pandemic making its mark in our lives for quite some time now, once again people are becoming anxious and stressed. Most of us are worried about the uncertainty associated with it.
Be it students, schools, parents, everyone is feeling the heat even in this cold weather!
Don’t loose hope and try to make the best out of it by keeping busy with something constructive. Each day keep some time for different activities you enjoy. For example, painting, aerobics, writing, cooking, etc. Try to learn something new in your area of interest. If you like video games, go for some free gaming courses, read on the latest developments and maybe even try making your own game to keep your passion alive.
