While engaging yourself in several activities, don’t forget to give time to your family.

In today’s runaway life, we are unable to give proper time to our loved ones. So we have to spend this time ‘HUMARA TIME’ with them.

We can do lots of things together like watch movies, play indoor games (Antakshari, treasure hunt, puzzles, etc.) or discuss future plans, interests and other issues.

This will strengthen family bonding and you will also get some life lessons from elders.

If someone in your family or friend circle is in the medical or police department, then you should support and cheer up them to reduce their stress.

You cannot understand how much stress they could be feeling due to this overburden of work.

Even after doing all these things, if you still feel that your stress and anxiety is increasing too much and you need someone’s help, download OpenWings app here.

You can contact us any time and we are always ready to help you.
