I always used to ignore/hate household activities like cleaning my car or helping my wife in daily chores but lockdown somehow forced a portion of these activities on me. And surprisingly, I started feeling that routine activities like cleaning the utensils somehow helped in quieting my ego and reducing the noises inside. In a way, all this helped me in creating a space for reflection and introspection. After a couple of weeks, I started enjoying these activities and now after 6 months, I have come to the realization that this has helped me in building my character. There is no doubt that competence building activities help us in moving forward in our professional life but other routine and household activities also help us in building our character and help us in moving forward in this journey called Life. This lockdown has made me realize that the quieter we are from inside, the more present we are outside.
