Here are a few tips and tricks by:

- The centres of disease control and prevention recommend you to avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. If someone is showing flue like or cold-like symptoms then try to stay 6ft away from him. Because as per the experts, the virus seems to be spread through droplets in the air from cough and sneeze. Use tissue while sneezing and coughing and then dispose of that tissue paper properly.
- Face masks: Unless you are already infected, facemasks won’t help you but if you are infected masks can prevent the spread of the virus. The most effective are N-95 which blocks 95% of very small particles.
- Practice social distancing and follow the lockdown properly. I know it’s very hard for us to stay at home but believe me it is the only way to kill this disease. If we can stay in our mother’s womb for 9 months, why can’t we stay at home for 21 days?
- We are currently living in a situation of extreme uncertainty, and if you are like me, you may have noticed yourself feeling extra anxious lately. Maybe you feel a constant ache it in your shoulders and neck. Maybe you are compulsively checking your phone, unable to tear your eyes away from Youtube, Instagram and Facebook, or maybe you’re extra irritable.

Science has shown that reading has some amazing health benefits, including helping with depression, cutting stress, and reducing the chances of developing Alzheimer’s later in life.
Most Important: Practice doing Pooja Aarti daily at your home, in the morning and evening and chant mantras and learn new mantras. Chanting mantras is one of the ancient spiritual practices of experiencing divine love and light. Chanting is a process of gathering the divine and spiritual energies that help in the transformation of different life issues thus benefiting each and every aspect of life. Physical body issues, mental blockage, energy blockages, emotional imbalances, trauma, spiritual blockages, challenges associated with relationships along with the negative emotions. All of these issues can be healed with Mantras. The ancients believed that chanting works through carrying one’s soul vibration and frequency with light, love, compassion and forgiveness. That is, mantras help to transform the vibration and frequency of your life to higher vibes and more loving dimension. Practice lighting lamp (Diya) in the evening: At dusk, lighting an oil lamp in the temple at home and near the tulsi plant creates a protective sheath of sattvik waves of the Deities around the house. This protects the people in the house from distressing vibrations generated from the activation of negative energies in the atmosphere. In the last, I would like to say :
