Make someone else happy: Share a silly forward on UR phone or call and make someone laugh, giggle or smile. This will also make you feel good about yourself and others.

Pursuit art or talent to divert UR mind and to enhance UR creativity: Doing so uses the right hemisphere of UR brain instead of just using the left hemisphere which is used only for logical and analytical thinking and execution.

Spend time with UR loved ones and friends: Though restricted by the pandemic, look for ways to stay connected with our loved ones by using technology to UR advantage. Video calling, phone calls and other social media platforms can help you bridge the communication gap during this crisis.
