What's interesting about this global coronavirus pandemic is that we've all come to think a little differently about our world, the way we inhabit it, and how we interact with the people around us. COVID-19 has been life-changing and not easy, but let's take a look at how it has changed us for the better.
We've Been Forced to Slow Down
As we've spent time in quarantine, a miraculous thing has happened. We've all come to understand the pace with which we were living our lives before the coronavirus, and now many have come to appreciate the benefit of slowing down. It was typical to be on the go constantly, but with nowhere to go and nobody to see, you can give yourself more space to reflect and relax and allow less pressure to control how you live your life.
Ethical Action Has Become More Important
There is nothing quite like a global health crisis to really put things into perspective. One area in which we have changed perspectives is how we connect with our communities. Now more than ever, people are becoming more involved in political, ethical, and racial activism with the goal of making this world a better place for everybody. People are realizing that everyone is connected and that standing up for others and our environment will make a lasting difference for current and future generations.
Self-Care Has Become More Important
There was already a wellness push before the coronavirus pandemic. In quarantine times, more people are taking the opportunity to eat better, exercise more, and take part in activities that bring joy, like online psychic readings.
Loved Ones Are a Priority
Part of never slowing down pre-coronavirus was, unfortunately, also not taking the time to foster the important relationships in your life. When you go through something like a quarantine and can't spend time with those you care about — your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors — the relationships you have with them somehow get even stronger. There is the opportunity now to miss each other and realize just how much you relied on each other during more "normal" times. Now is the right time to make sure you check in and prioritize your relationships in the future.
We Address Our Consumerism
You may have previously found yourself spending money frivolously, mostly in the name of instant gratification, but after COVID-19, this will likely change. Spending less during this time translates to being more conscious of your money-spending habits, and many people are now supporting small businesses that have been impacted by the pandemic. You may also focus more on the intangible now.
While there have definitely been some drawbacks to the COVID-19 pandemic, looking on the bright side and changing the way you interact with the world is one area where you can be happy about and proud of.
