INDIAN RICH TRADITIONAL APPROACH TOWARDS WELL-BEING IN CONTEXT OF NEW NORMAL
Dr. Kishore Mukhopadhyay
Lockdowns have been imposed around the world to contain the spread of the corona virus pandemic. However, excessively stringent measures might be a threat to people’s mental health. This study examines the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown on psychological well-being and its relationship to habit and routine modifications. The emergence of COVID -19 pandemic has severely impacted individuals from all walks of life. The rapid spread of the disease to nearly all parts of the country has posed enormous health, economic, environmental and social challenges to the entire human population. In the absence of any effective drugs and vaccines for treatment, social distancing and other preventive measures are the only alternatives. Lockdown is among one of the options suggested by World Health Organisation (WHO) to reduce spread of the virus. India was quick to close its international borders and enforce the world’s largest COVID lockdown on March 22, 2020. In this new normal situation when people are almost inside their room and spending time with great worry and stress, our rich traditional concept of yoga is the only weapon to fight against the unwanted virus as well as to built our health and well being in the positive direction.
