Not just happiness
Many people are exhausted by the time they face a minor problem in their lives. Don’t think happiness is the only life. It’s like saying you only eat stew at the feast. You may feel sad, angry, worried, and refreshed in life. Don’t think you can fix it quickly. If there are such problems, many people become anxious and lead to other mental difficulties. We should be able to embrace unhappy living conditions and emotions. It is our approach to things that needs to change.
Even if you’re at home in the lockdown, life needs to be organized. Maintain a healthy way of life and a proper diet. Try to learn something new that will be useful for the future.
