It was the summer of 2020 and I was enjoying my holidays with my family. This was when covid cases in India started spiking and the lockdown was implemented for the first time. I took no notice of it and the lockdown felt nothing more than an extended summer vacation. Only after six months, I realized the changes taking place in my everyday life.
It was a whole new scenario, a situation I had never imagined. From my classes to exams, it was all done online. It forced me to use those digital gadgets that I wasn’t used to. I started using social media every day, texting my friends, gazing videos, and so on. That’s when I started to worry about a lot of stuff.
The isolation brought on by lockdown and strict social distancing made me feel lonely. It was a strange feeling because, although I appreciated spending time with my parents and siblings, I missed my friends and school much. I found a lot of trouble learning online and I was a bit helpless with my studies.
On top of that, the uncertainty prevailing on my examinations made conditions further worse. On the other hand, the number of covid related deaths was alarmingly increasing, which made me anxious to the core. Though I had a lot of leisure time, I felt tired and troubled. My daily schedule was also not as systematic as it used to be before the lockdown.
I know, I was struggling. But I didn’t give into it. My parents were extremely supportive during these difficult times. They made me follow a consistent routine, balancing my studies and other activities. I started taking responsibilities at home, trying new skills and hobbies like baking, organizing my room, gardening, etc.
Also, daily exercises helped me a lot. Even our school encouraged us positively to take part in these activities on the occasion of International Yoga Day, National Sports Day, etc. by arranging some helpful Webinars. I began practicing yoga and meditations and some home exercises. It gave me the peace of mind I wanted.
It’s more than a year now and a lot has changed. Everything seems to turn normal. Our schools are reopened and I am glad to see my friends after such a long time. And of course, this covid period is going to be a lifetime memory.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
