In this scenario, how could we ignore social media? You might have above 300 likes and 150 comments on that beer chugging video of yours, but your boss might not possibly be impressed with it. The kind of photos posted on your timeline describing your opinions could be taken seriously as a judgment of your character by the companies. Utilize this time to filter your social media.
You can also use these social media platforms to podcast your writings and creativity. This will help people to know you better and will surely create a positive impression. It will also help you to connect with more number of like-minded peoples.

Practice the meditation twice a day and experience the change in your life. You could try some books and videos devoted to inner conscience. Yoga practice will not only help you to cope up with this quarantine stress but making it a habit will improve your concentration power and even help you to tackle the stressful situations very calmly and patiently.
6. Connection and Gratification
Approximately 19-20 years of your life, so many people have come and went helping you to be the beautiful person you are now. Remember your tuition teacher of class 10th, your crime partner in school, your cousins with whom you have not made a conversation for a long period of time. So, why wait? This is the time to have a long conversation with them again. Connect with them over virtual coffee on video calls, share some slam books nowadays trending on social media, play some truth and dare games. In short, make some memories with them during this quarantine. You might even move to another city or country in the future, so spend this time with your family over a game of Ludo, cards. Show yourself some gratitude as well. Make this time one of the happiest periods of your life, capture these memories within your heart And yes!!
