So ... many have been calling me and my folks to ask if I’m actually ok because many think that ‘self quarantine’ is done ‘only when one falls sick’. Im under quarantine by choice due to my recent travel from LA to India. That’s the rule just Incase you didn’t know. And Ofcourse the entire worlds literally come to a stand-still and my shoot is pushed indefinitely too. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Right now, nobody knows what’s next. Now what do we do with all this time in hand? •Stop Stressing & Propagating Fear/panic. •There is nothing you can do about it OTHER THAN... •Stay Home. Wash Hands(20 sec). Sanitize. •Take this time to bond with family or if your alone.. give ‘you’ some self-care, skin-care, just any CARE or get a mental/ spiritual cleanse or do the master cleanse 😜 like no one cares in the world. Pay attention to the fact that ‘you are not BUSY now’ which means ‘You are too free’. So don’t lose your mind & commonsense and get out to spend that ‘free-time’ being irresponsible and becoming a COVID carrier. Idle mind is a devils workshop. Stay safe, stay home, find some beautiful ways to use your time within your own space & this will help keep others safe too. Whatever it is that you choose to do, do It from within. And please don’t spend your entire day on your phone/whatsapp/fb. Organize your time well. Good luck and I hope we all make it through this just fine. #quarantine #selflove #followtherules #covid_19 #painting #diy #home #kochi #silence #meditation

Spending time with kids

After hours of work, most of the time we complaint about not getting time for our children. This is the time! Make sure you engage your kids with some activities and play along with them.
