While it’s essential to take care of your physical health by washing hands, practicing social distancing and staying at home, I think it’s equally important to take care of your mental health as well.

Through this the article, I would like to give you an alternative plan spending your time during the lockdown and tackling this productivity and positivity.

Well, to make this time productive we all can make 21 habits which we all should follow and be consistent with it.
