The ongoing coronavirus situation has caused havoc across the globe. It has not only had an impact on the global economy and health infrastructure but has also had a huge effect on the mental health of everyone. In such a situation, it also becomes mandatory for people to take care of their mental well being. Many people have picked up their long lost hobbies and interests to keep themselves distracted in such trying times.
Google India has come up with a rather creative dos and don’ts list for its audience. Through their interesting list, the company urged people to follow the practices mentioned till the time everyone is vaccinated. They have shared colourful graphics to put across their point.
They have shared a carousel of photos on Instagram which are divided into two sections, i.e. dos and don’ts. In the Dos part of all the photos, the technology giant has urged people to practice basic things that are preventive against the novel coronavirus. This includes practices such as wearing a face mask, regularly washing hands, and maintaining social distancing.
The creativity of the post lies in the don’ts section, wherein Google has talked about the practices and activities that people can follow and do while being at home. In the photo where the brand has urged everyone to wear a mask, they have also asked to not mask feelings. In the subsequent line where social distancing is mentioned, the tech giant has put up an image that shows how one can remain connected to their social circle through video calling. In the snap where washing hands is promoted, the idea of getting hands dirty with hobbies is also put across.
