Hey everyone,

How are you doing in this period? I hope you are taking safety precautions and washing your hands very often. This period has been a trying time for everyone: whether you have been directly or indirectly affected. Well, I am here to spread a little bit of hope.

First, it is very easy to be bored when you are forced to stay at home (especially all you social butterflies). I think it is very important to fall into some kind of routine. It can be flexible. It could be having only one productive activity per day. I know that doesn’t sound right but focusing on one little thing every day even if it is just for an hour, can do so much to train your mind. It could be writing, reading, drawing, creating, all depending on your interests.

However, as much as we want to be productive during this period, don’t forget to rest. It feels like the whole world has slowed down and people are starting to realize that which really matters. Take time for yourself, cook something beautiful, eat well, sleep well, watch a Netflix show and don’t feel guilty for doing it. Right now, some people might be all about “Now is the time to start your business”. While that is correct in a way, don’t feel pressured. Relax and slow down too.

Observe the times. As I write to you, I guess you are most likely an undergrad or maybe you just recently joined the workforce. This COVID-19 period will undoubtedly change a lot of things as regards to business, the economy and the future of work. Study the times, things are changing and you don’t want to be caught unprepared when all this is over. Follow what is going on in your fields, what skills are going to be needed at the end of all this. The future has always been for those who are prepared for it. As you are watching Tik-Tok videos, also watch enlightening YouTube videos.

I don’t have to remind you to check up on people, boredom is already making y’all call your exes. But for real, you don’t have to be distant, the world is a global village.

And lastly, pray. Pray, pray, pray. Pray for understanding in a period where the whole world is confused. Pray that the Lord shows you how you can be a blessing to someone in this season. Pray so that you don’t lose faith. Draw closer to God and He will draw close to you.

And I hope that in spite of all these things, the peace that passes all understanding will be with you.
