    The 2019 corona virus disease pandemic (COVID-19) can be stressful for people.

Public health measures, such as social distancing, can make people feel isolated and lonely, and may increase stress and anxiety.

Dealing with stress or stress management in a healthy way will strengthen you and strengthen your loved ones and your community.

    Quarantined life has become our new way of life. So, work from home. We all think it's great to be at home and not rush to the office every morning. But in fact, you know that this is a completely new challenge.

    Due to blockage, works at home problems are currently diverse.

    •Firstly, you are not allowed to go out. Being locked up in the four walls of your house all day can be frustrating. Man is a social animal, and no human interaction or entertainment, and work outside the typical office environment, can undoubtedly affect us all.

    •Two, only stores that sell essentials can be opened. Thus, to focus on what is not enough for the whole family is quite natural. And if you have children, you can worry about stocking up on their food and other needs due to limited availability.

    •Three schools are closed. You should take care of your children and try to entertain them while you work.

    •Fourth, there are many household chores such as cooking, washing, and dishes. And if you are away from home, it will only increase the stress that you may experience.

    Do you understand that this chaos can harm your mental health? And if you do not relax your mind, how can you completely give your professional and personal life?

    Since we also work at home we know what you're going through. So, here are ten proven ideas to relieve stress and make your work more productive in Quarantined (pun intended)!

    We follow them and reap the benefits and hope that you too.

    1.Reflecting: The importance of good mental health is undeniable. So, what could be better than meditation to control your mental balance? Isolate yourself in a quiet place at home; make sure the place is quiet and not too bright. Meditate for at least five to ten minutes a day and you will feel more relaxed than ever.

    2.Solving puzzles: We know what you are thinking: “Won't it bore me?” No Research says puzzle solving relaxes brain cells, in turn relieving stress. Isn't that amazing? So, solve a simple puzzle, sudoku or crossword puzzle at the end of the day to avoid stress.

    3.Read a book: Reading a book is a good brain exercise and one of the best stress management techniques. Good reading not only calms your mind, but also improves your imagination and creativity. But by saying this, we also urge you to take physical copies of books, rather than reading electronic books; reading on your phone, tablet or laptop can strain your eyes.

    4.Write: Start your own blog or magazine. It could be about the corona virus or about something that you love. It may even be what you hate. But if this does not work for you, there is an easier option - to express your thoughts in a diary at the end of the day. Studies say expressive writing is an effective stress management tool.

    5.Organize: Do you have a disordered shelf or disorganized wardrobe at home? Or even folders on your laptop? Start organizing them gradually. Do not overload yourself, trying to arrange everything at once. Organizing things helps you feel better and helps you cope with stress and anxiety.

    6.Take a break: This is not a no brainer. Short breaks between works not only refresh your brain, but also increase your productivity. Therefore, take a break of 5-10 minutes every 90 minutes, even if it requires you to increase working time.

    7.Try gardening: Gardening may seem like a lot of work, but it is not. Take 15 minutes of your day to plant seedlings, pick weeds, or water plants. I speak from personal experience. A few minutes of gardening after a stressful task works wonders - it relaxes your mind and how! And best of all, it helps you sleep better. Isn't that all we need after a busy day? In addition to the above, think positively, try not to use the phone a lot, and treat yourself to personal care products.

    8. Learn something new: Have you long dreamed of learning to play the guitar or start learning English? Now is the time to start. On the Internet there are many paid and free courses for obtaining any knowledge. You can start by looking for lessons on YouTube. This is a great stress management technique during lockdown

    9. Do something yourself: Handmade is a fascinating and useful activity. You can make an interesting piece of furniture, soap or some kind of craft. Surely, you have a lot of unrealized talents.

    10.Cook together: Children with great pleasure will take part in the preparation of food. Especially if it will be homemade cookies, dumplings or desserts. From the age of three, they will be able to knead, roll and mix various ingredients. With pleasure they will use cookie cutters or handles for handcrafting.

    So these were the Top 10 Stress Management techniques which you can perform during lockdown to help you get rid of these excessive stress that has occurred due to Corona Virus Pandemic.

    Good Luck and All the best!!
