We are all living in a world of struggle and need. In a constant chase for hope and healing, the lives we lived before the pandemic seems like a distant dream. Work from home and online meeting have become the new norm. While everyone is looking for the a physical cure, many don’t even realize to give attention to our mental being. Studies have shown an increase in the number of mental health cases during the span of the Covid pandemic. So, in this article I want to talk about something that should have been addressed a long time ago- mental well being during the pandemic.

To cope up with this try facing towards the eastern direction while working a sit is known to have a more positive resonance.

Now, we all can agree that working from home has a lot of distraction. From kids running around to the kitchen blender being used and if you live alone, just the pull of our Netflix addiction can easily reduce our productivity. So to increase concentration keep a water source in the north east direction as it is the home of the element water and bring positivity and reduces the chance of loss of focus. If this is not possible you can also keep a glass of water near you while working to gain the same results. Finally, at the end of a long hard working day, one needs to make sure to have a relaxed mind and dispose off any stress before calling it a night. Sleeping with your head towards east or south east is said to be optimal as both these directions stands for a rested, relaxed and refreshed mind. To go an extra mile, you can also have a yellow colour dustbin where you work as it is the colour of disposal.
