Fun activities to help you sail through during the work from home season!
Work from home season has officially begun, thanks to COVID 19. Discipline is needed for work from home. Assigning a specific time and getting ready, dressed up et al helps some people fall into the work from home routine, while some others thrive in flexi working time. If implemented right, it can leave you with loads of time in hand! I put together a few creative and fun ideas to hopefully enjoy this time…
1.Try reorganizing your furniture… Fight Alert if your partner is involved!
2. Maybe reorganizing and downsizing your wardrobe!
3. You can deep clean your house or the kitchen or your room or even your car.
4. Ironing clothes is a Zen exercise and could be soothing and therapeutic if you know how to iron.
5. This time also calls for some partner workout sessions, such as yoga or meditation. What’s more, it is a 2 in 1 bonding exercise!
6. You can go through old family albums, baby pictures with your family. Recalling happy pictures is always a fun and joyful event.
7. You can try some DIY stuff, such as gardening, baking and art, or maybe make a scrap book or even a vision board with pictures. If you have children, the more the merrier! To sprinkle some more fun, you could add some board games, puzzle into the mix.
8. Go for online courses to enrich yourself on a topic of interest or just have fun. It could be anything, right from an art or cooking class to a serious economic course.
9. Though I have not tried, I have heard online video games within close friends’ groups are memorable and enjoyable
10. Reading is a long-forgotten habit for many. Try reading some books of interest. Start small and simple. One could even download any book they want from websites online these days!
I’d love to hear your suggestions and experiences! Also, stay safe and indoors everyone. We’re all in this together!

What is Your Story
Everyone has a story. We have all dealt with some form of self-doubt or an internal battle, while navigating our way through life. But each one of us is also a gracious example of a human being who has overcome several issues and is standing tall through it all. Over the years, coaching and interacting with many different kinds of people, I’ve realized that there is an underlying human spirit that has the courage to overcome the many inner demons that plague an individual, which is present in each one of us.
Nothing has given me more pleasure over the years than helping people become the best version of themselves, and I put all my heart and soul into every new person I coach. The icing on the cake being each coaching conversation helps me ground myself, reaffirm my learnings and opens my eyes into broadening my perspective.
Like all of us, I have a story too. I started out as a closed minded person believing in my way or the high way, and over the years life has showered me graciously with learning opportunities and I feel blessed to share my learnings with you all. I have realized that the human spirit surpasses the practical challenges of day to day life, and each one of us are equally intelligent and have a unique potential to offer something extraordinary to the world.
So let us build together a world where each person’s unique offering to this world is recognized, celebrated and heard. I would love to hear your stories in the comments below!

Ms. Geeta Ramakrishnan, ontological coach and Author: “This I assume must be a difficult decision for the PrimeMinister and I am in total agreement. COVID -19 pandemic is not to be taken lightly. Specially we have examples of countries like China, Italy and the US to learn from. This 21 day lockdown will hopefully break the exponential growth chain and help our health care resources and system to be better prepared and manage the virus outbreak much better. Yes, it will not be easy and can cause a lot of inconveniences and an economic turmoil which I can’t even fathom. I pray that all my fellow citizens respect their safety and that of all Indians and think this is a small price to pay for the sake of the safety of all our lives.”
