Good Vibes Only
A global pandemic has helped us realise that self-care is as important for the mind, as it is for the body
Hena Desai

As millions of us are still confined to our houses in this pandemic-ridden, panic-stricken time, anxiety is soaring higher than ever, and naturally so. We’re doing everything we can in our power to stay motivated, stick to our usual schedules, and keep at it but there are days when everything gets a little too overwhelming. The lockdown may have imposed a ton of restrictions on us, but it has also made us realise the importance of slowing down, focussing on ourselves, and our mental health. So if you’ve caught yourself Googling ways to relax in the past couple of weeks, know that you’re not alone – there's been a 95% increase in the search for ‘self-care’ techniques, as people turn to breathing exercises, meditation and more to calm tf down. Needless to say, it goes beyond face masks and salt baths; we’re talking about care for the mind, something to deal with stress and anxiety in the most effortless manner. Take a look at these easy-to-follow alternate wellness therapies that take no more than 10 minutes to practise, and offer a bit of solitude and calm, even if it’s just for a moment.
