The COVID-19 Epidemic has caused a lot of inconvenience among all sections of society. The work has been slow, education and jobs became virtual. This lockdown has been a disaster among most sections of society. But I have gained a lot of benefit from the lockdown. I along with a lot of students have got the opportunity of life. Opportunity to grow as an individual and a path towards self-development.
Our hectic life never got us any time to learn anything new and fun, we were busy running in the race of life. Instead of learning what we desire, we were forced to cram up things which were required at the time. I had to study all the computer-related subjects like Java, Python, Data Structures in my classes when I had a hidden desire to write, start, and learn to blog. Finally, I got to fulfill my desire. I know a lot of you are having the same feeling just like me. Finally, we were able to do something that the heart wants, and not something that was the need of time.
This is a golden period for self-development. Now, is the time to learn and develop yourself both mentally and physically. Anything could be done at this time. Take decisions for your life. Do you wish to have a new career, or always wished to change your work line? Start Planning- Now is the right time. Do you wish to learn a skill? Learn to play an instrument- Guitar seems cool. Achieve peace of mind by learning Yoga, and bring it into your regular schedule, even after the epidemic.
