Family is not important thing, it is everything. We know that it is very difficult to adjust to new world of corona virus and mean while social distancing is difficult as well. But one must aware of that it is very precious and best time to spend with your family. Due to this effect of corona many were living in lock down thereby with out earning and many distractions because of work not going accordingly. We might be showing our anger and tiredness on family members. we will be loosing our patience for each and everything. What are our family members supposed to do?
Corona virus quarantine has pushed many of us to spend most of their time with family than ever before. Now we need to focus on how to do work from home, how to make parenting, what to eat and how we must behave in walking of same rooms whole day. This results in deteriorating of relationships which are stronger and stable.
We have to cope up with all challenges as you need to spend 24/7 in your house with family which is a new job.
Helpingwives.com has provided some approved tips for keeping your relations strong and healthy:
1. Make time for yourself:
Every individual must have their own alone time and it is very crucial. Take time just to be alone like just breathing, yoga, meditation,texting to a friend, take a nap or read trending news whatever it may be. The main important thing we need to focus is to take time to be with you, yourself and just you not anyone else.If you have your own alone time, your family members will have the same from you. You need to be apart from family to get recharge and for bonding relations. This may sometimes avoids big disputes and quarrels.
2. Stay in touch with outside world:
Unluckily at this time it is not possible to get out of house and see friends and relatives. The key point is social distancing to avoid spreading of corona and it works only when we stay at home. But thanks to technology, there are many ways to communicate each other. Communication is key factor in relationships all the time, but when you are quarantined together 24/7, communication is even more crucial.
3. Try a imaginary person to blame things on:
In a house of family definitely there are some irresponsible or lazy ones who leaves plates or toys everywhere, and also forgets about the things. Some may get irritation and annoyance of all the things they do. Instead of getting irritated and frustration on family members, make up an imaginary person and try to exhibit all your anger on that. So that we can save our relations and it will be funny too.
4. Use the most of time in a day:
Say, if you are a couple who lives together but ever sees each other due to conflicts and disputes, now it is the right time to heal and reconnect each other. You can make this quarantine more funny if you do all works together. Like helping in domestic work, gardening and talk openly with your family. Always try to see positivity in family members.

5. Spend much time with children:
Children are the best gifts to forget all your worries and stress. More over children dont have any worries. They are the happiest creatures on the earth. Try to spend more time on them. create a schedule for them. I think many quarrels and conflicts arise in family due to not taking care of children. Let us make our kids childhood more memorable and cherish their thoughts. Now a days kids are very smart, let them exhibit their smartness in creative way. Let us support them.
5. Thank everyone:
Try to thank everyone in the family for small things they done for you. Gratitude is more important because it allows us to focus on What people are doing right, instead of what they are doing wrong. Irritations, frustrations and angryness easily grow when we always find faults or failures in others, So always thank for small and silly things like,
- Thanks for the dish
- Say thanks for sharing TV with me
- Thanks for doing favor for me
Family = Father And Mother I Love You. Now it is time to love your family most. In this imperfect, uncertain and stressful world we must be cautious of our relations with children and family. For everything there will be time It is family time. Concentrate on making happy home rather than happy house. God has given such a gift to spend with family. so enjoy it.
