Covid-19 is here with us whether we acknowledge it or not. The stress it has brought on our lives cannot be overlooked. However, it also presents a few positive lifestyle changes which we hope can stay with us forever. Keep reading to find out a few activities that the pandemic presents and how it can change our lifestyle patterns going forward.
Hand washing. Nosemasks. Sanitizers. Quarantine. These are all responses to the pandemic and are activities that are gradually becoming a lifestyle for most people. Previously, people were not likely be observing strict hygienic lifestyles. However, people now see the need to protect themselves through staying away from filth and contaminations through hand washing and wearing of nose masks. These activities should become habitual even after the pandemic is gone.
Frequent testing of body temperature and hospital check ups are now in vogue. People are now left with no option than to check the progress of their health to be sure that they are not tested positive for the corona virus. Going forward, frequent visits to the health facilities for checkups must be a lifestyle.
We have seen an avalanche of donations in our various communities in the wake of the corona virus pandemic which is really admirable. A concern for the vulnerable and the under privileged is eventually becoming a normal thing to do in these times. Being philanthropic must therefore extend beyond the pandemic times. People must be more humane towards each other and be kind to others at all times.
Parents are spending more time with their children in these times. Families are bonding more and getting to know each other the more which is great. We hope that this will transcend beyond these difficult times and that families will see the need to be together often. Family bonding are a good way to develop self confidence among young people as they feel more loved and gain a sense of belonging.
