We can get into the habit of moving for 5-10 minutes every hour without forcing ourselves but without delay. Taking precautionary measures and walking in nature for 1 hour a day in safe places will be very good for us, and we will have created time for yourself during this walk, at this time we will be able to dream, listen to music we want and really make a trip to ourselves. Watching a movie as a family, commenting on the subject and characters, discussing the movie, or reading a joint book with the reading hour, and again thinking about it will also be good for us.

Everyone’s experience of illness will be different, so all you have to do now is to take precautions and keep your psychology intact. A cautious life; What do you think it adds to reading negative things, being afraid and being told about this unpleasant process, which is the common destiny of the whole world, apart from seeing restrictions as an opportunity to develop and change our habits and a process to gain a strong will?
