10 useful tips to live at peace amidst Coronavirus pandemic

Here are some useful tips to live at peace amidst this Coronavirus pandemic.

  1. Do not constantly check the news and keep an eye on the count of cases. It is important to stay up-to-date with latest guidelines but it also easy to get carried away with numbers and details. Also don’t read every single headlines as most of them are written with a captive or a fearful headlines to get your attention. Decide to check one or two trust worthy websites or channels at specific times of the day to get latest information.
  2. Before you go out, ask if it is really necessary and what pre-caution you can take to stay safe. Ensure you take a hand sanitiser or wipe before you go out.
  3. Avoid the temptation to panic-buy. When we buy more than what is needed it means someone else may not get what is needed.
  4. Replace the thought of “what will happen if I or my loved ones get affected” with “what can I do to help someone who is affected.” You don’t need to be physically there to help someone. But even a phone call or a text message will lift someone up who is going through a difficult time.
  5. If you talk to someone who is worried about this issue, encourage them and try to avoid topics that may aggravate their fear and worry. If possible, try not to talk about this situation and talk about something different and interesting.
  6. Hear at least 15 minutes of uplifting songs everyday that exalt Christ and His greatness. It is for a reason the singer wrote, “Turn your eyes upon Jesus Look full, in his wonderful face. And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of his glory and grace.”
  7. Hear an encouraging sermon from youtube or other trust worthy websites for 30 minutes every day and ponder on that. Read the bible and explore the scriptures from what you heard.
  8. If you are still worried, try praying! God answers prayer every time we pray.
  9. Spread some joy, humour, hope, faith and love to others. It can spread faster than Coronavirus! It is the best way to kill this virus. People need this more than hand sanitisers!
  10. Finally, always wash hands and take all pre-cautions to stay away from infections and also to stop passing infections.
