5 Things Tuesday — 5 Life lessons you have learned during the lockdown.

Something totally unexpected happened at the end of February 2020. A global pandemic was declared by the WHO and most places went into unprecedented lockdowns.

The pandemic still is here. Maybe for another year or two, who can say for sure.

I have learned a few things since February’20

Share;

After the toilet paper shortage, OTC painkillers were scarce too. People bought all the hand sanitizer from stores and even on Amazon, one couldn’t find any. The most important lesson I learned was to share. Get only what you need and leave the rest for others.

• Be kind;

Pandemic is tough on everyone. Be kind when you see people struggling with their lives. Be more understanding and forgiving. When everyone is suffering, a little kindness goes a long way.

Learn to entertain yourself;

When one is in a lockdown, there aren’t many people you can visit, movies you can watch in theater, or go shopping to the mall. I have found the ability to entertain myself was a lifesaver. Reading, blogging, making lego creations and going for long walks were the ways I kept myself busy.

Be organized and disciplined;

I learned that following a routine and sticking to it was the best way to have a stress free day. When I woke up every morning, I knew what was my schedule for the day and I always had something planned that would make me wake up with hope everyday.

Look after your health and appearance;

It was the perfect time to get back to healthy eating and to try to shed the extra weight. Walking daily, eating according to my plan helped me lose 10 pounds. I also got some kits and products online for self grooming and it was another way to spend my time productively and pleasantly.

These are some of the very important lessons I learned during the pandemic lockdown.

  1. Indeed. Those are great learnings. I especially resonate with the self-created structure, and making sure to look after oneself. Can be easy sometimes to slip into laziness, yet, getting up getting dressed, etc., creates a more balanced and positive attitude. Great post, my friend.
