The factories have stopped manufacturing and those people who are involved in sales and marketing are currently working from home. The guidelines issued by Xiaomi will help a long way for the people who work from home to become effective and productive.
Start your day right
You should not skip your workout during the lockdown. You can perform few stretches including 15 minutes of Yoga. You can also do quick pushups every day to keep yourself engaged and energized.
You should confine yourself to a specific area in the house. You should keep the workstation clean from any disturbances. You should prevent other house members from invading your workspace including kids. However, you can’t prevent kids from entering the workspaces but you can keep them engaged with activities.
Regular work hours
Like in the office, you should maintain a strict schedule from 9 AM to 5 PM. You should boot your PC early and keep all the connections intact, which includes Broadband and mobile. You should work in the same way as you do inside your office cabin. If you are feeling bored, you can read books and magazines.
You should not work continuously before computer screen and should take breaks in between. You can take a walk around the house or get a cup of coffee. You can also watch your favorite TV series when you are free between your work schedule. You can read books and surf through your bookshelf for old magazines and notebooks. You will be able to find plenty of old books inside your shelves, which turn out to be great memories.
Even though you are working from home, you should establish connectivity with friends and colleagues. You can make use of video chat to stay in touch with your friends via Zoom, Skype or WhatsApp video calling functionalities.
Digital Detox: Unplugging for Better Well-being
In the fast-paced digital age, where smartphones and screens dominate our daily lives, taking a step back and embracing a digital detox has become more crucial than ever for our overall well-being. The constant barrage of notifications, emails, and social media updates can contribute to stress, anxiety, and a sense of being constantly “plugged in.” In this article, we will explore the concept of a digital detox and the positive impact it can have on your mental and physical health.
Understanding the Need for a Digital Detox
Our increasing reliance on digital devices has led to a phenomenon where we are constantly connected, making it challenging to escape the demands of work, social media, and the digital world in general. This constant connectivity can take a toll on our mental health, contributing to feelings of burnout, sleep disturbances, and decreased productivity.
A digital detox involves intentionally disconnecting from digital devices for a specified period. This break allows individuals to recalibrate, recharge, and focus on activities that promote well-being.
Benefits of a Digital Detox
Reduced Stress and Anxiety
Constant exposure to information and notifications can elevate stress levels. Taking a break from digital devices provides a mental reset, allowing you to unwind and relax.
Improved Sleep Quality
The blue light emitted by screens can disrupt sleep patterns. A digital detox, especially before bedtime, can improve the quality of your sleep, leading to better overall health.
Without the constant distractions from notifications and social media, individuals often find themselves more focused and productive during a digital detox. This break allows for a deeper immersion in tasks without interruptions.
While digital platforms connect us with people globally, they can also hinder face-to-face interactions. A digital detox encourages real-world connections, fostering stronger relationships with friends and family.
Constant comparison on social media can negatively impact self-esteem. A digital detox provides the opportunity for self-reflection and a break from the pressure of curated online personas.
Tips for a Successful Digital Detox
Set Clear Boundaries
Establish specific times or days for your digital detox. Communicate these boundaries to friends, family, and colleagues to manage expectations.
Find Offline Activities
Identify activities that bring you joy and fulfillment without the need for screens. This could include reading, hiking, painting, or spending quality time with loved ones.
Create a Tech-Free Zone
Designate specific areas in your home, such as the bedroom or dining area, as tech-free zones. This can help you disengage during crucial times like meals and bedtime.
Use Technology Mindfully
When you return to using digital devices, do so with intention. Practice mindful consumption by limiting the time spent on social media and being selective about the content you engage with.
In a world that’s always online, taking the time to unplug and detox from digital devices is a powerful act of self-care. By incorporating regular digital detoxes into our lives, we can cultivate a healthier relationship with technology, fostering improved mental and physical well-being. Remember, the key is not to eliminate technology entirely but to use it consciously and in a way that enhances, rather than detracts from, our overall quality of life.
Google delays approval of Kerala Savari app on technical grounds
Kerala Chief Minister has launched the much-awaited Kerala Savari cab service at a function held in Thiruvanathapuram. However, the Kerala Savari app is yet to arrive on Google Play Store and hence the commuters are waiting to ride on autos and cabs. According to reports, Google is delaying the verification due to technical problems with the app. The commuters are unable to book tickets because of the delay. The official claimed that Kerala Savari app will hit Play Store by August 17 afternoon followed by night. It’s well known that Kerala Government’s BevQ approval got delayed after the initial announcement.
Flagged off Kerala Savari, the 1st online taxi service under public initiative. Govt. approved fares and remuneration will ensure safe commute and fair wages. Public won’t be fleeced and drivers won’t be exploited. #KeralaModel shines yet again, this time through our Labour Dept. pic.twitter.com/2HNNTVf7w5

Kerala Savari is the first attempt by any state Government in India. The Government claims that drivers are police verified and has integrated several safety measures into the app. The officials revealed that Kerala Savari app provides not only an affordable riding experience but also excellent continued income for motor workers. The service offers improved features when compared with competing cab services such as Ola, Uber, and others. The booking can be canceled by both drivers and riders.
As of this writing, over 302 autos and 226 taxis have registered to become part of Kerala Savari. The attractive part of the Kerala Savari service is that 22 drivers are females. The service will become operational on a trial basis followed by a wider rollout in other cities.
The Kerala Savari app is yet to appear on the Google Play Store. We expect the app to get approval from Google today. The service will lose credibility if the app is delayed beyond that. We wonder why the authorities failed to get approval for the app prior to the official launch.
Malayali student killed in Kuwait over Fortnite game fiasco with his parents
A Malayali student Nihal Mathew (13) has been killed in Kuwait over a feud with his parents over a dangerous computer game named Fortnite. According to reports, the kid fell down from a high rise apartment complex and was found dead by people. His parents had warned him when Nihal was immersed in the game for a long time. His parents has roots in Kerala and are part of the Malayali NRI community. The incident occurred on Saturday and the game has been driving crazy among kids.
Nihal was deeply involved with the Fortnite game over the past several days. His parents were said to have warned him when he was deeply involved before the PC for a long time. With anger, Nihal left home but his parents could not find him. The incident was reported to Police and they conducted a detailed investigation. They found the body of the boy from the backside of the building. It was found that the boy fell down from the second floor of the building since his house was on the first floor.
Nihal was studying 9th Grade in Kuwait English school. His mother is a doctor with a popular hospital in Kuwait. He was survived by his elder brother Nikhil. The Fortnite game is believed to be equivalent to Blue Whale game. Launched in 2017, the game is said to be popular among kids. There are reports and complaints that kids often enter into depression mood after playing the game for a long time.
When kids often play games for a long time, parents should encourage them to do other talks that are simple. We now have plenty of activity games and parents should ask kids to learn them. Moreover, parents should encourage online learning among kids because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The parents should not show any anger towards kids. They can even encourage kids to learn the art of painting and software development.
