Yes, these are dark times, so what can we do to make a change in our and others' lives? Read on...
To say that 2020 has been a transformational year thus far would be downplaying it. While one must always be ready for transformations, a sudden, forced, and an entire change in lifestyle could be difficult and unwelcoming. But right now, as we are in the midst of a lockdown, we can either sulk over what has happened or make proactive efforts to thrive and come out stronger from this phase.
Almost all of us in the world are at home waiting for a better tomorrow, so much so, that we have forgotten to live in the present, whatever it may be. As this is our new normal now, it is only logical to treat it as such. Even as the whole world suffers, it is important that we take care of ourselves and do whatever it takes to keep our sanity intact.
As per your zodiac sign, here are some of the things we can do to take care of ourselves during this difficult time.
Staying still does not come naturally to you, nor does being told what to do!

In short, motivate yourself!
Taurus loves the slow life and it suits you too. Therefore, try doing things that will make give your life meaning and also keep you busy.
