The pandemic forced all of us to make adaptations in our daily lives. We had to find new ways to work, exercise, educate our children, shop, socialize, and relieve stress. While adopting these changes hasn’t been easy, people have picked up some excellent habits as a result. Don’t let these positive behaviors disappear with the pandemic! Here are some great habits to hang onto even after the coronavirus is over.


Practice Self-Care at Home

The pandemic helped many of us realize that we don’t need to take a vacation or a trip to the spa for self-care. There are endless ways to practice self-care at home! Do yoga, cook a healthy meal, take a hot bath, try meditation, or create a calming evening routine. Cleansing your home of bad energy will also serve your self-care goals, especially if spending most of your time around the house these days. Redfin suggests transforming your home into a vibrant, rejuvenating space by cleaning, decluttering, and opening the windows to let fresh air flow through your space.

Make Time for Fun

Having fun is an essential element of any self-care routine. Although the pandemic stole many of our favorite pastimes, it opened the door to new types of fun. People picked up new hobbies, discovered new passions, and explored different types of entertainment.

For example, video games skyrocketed in popularity during COVID-19! Playing online video games is an excellent way to connect with friends and make new ones when you can’t go out and socialize in person. If you want to jump on the bandwagon, make sure your internet connection can handle online gaming. A fiber-optic connection from a provider like Verizon will minimize buffering and ensure your games run smoothly.

Spend More Time Outside

Looking to get out of the house? Head into the great outdoors! Nature offers excellent refuge from the stuffy interior of our homes during the pandemic. Plus, it’s easy to practice social distancing when we have plenty of space to spread out and steer clear of others. Spending time in natural environments is fantastic for our mental health, so try to maintain this habit going forward.

Pursue Your Passions

Making the switch to remote work—or losing work altogether—has prompted many people to pursue their passions and start home-based businesses. Starting your own business is an exciting way to earn a living and enjoy greater freedom in your professional life. If you’re preparing to launch a business right now, make sure you do it right! Forming an LLC can help you tackle your legal requirements and protect your personal assets from business debts or liabilities. Online formation services can help you cost-effectively navigate the steps involved in filing an LLC in your state.

Support Local Businesses

Remember to support other small businesses too! Many small businesses are still struggling to stay afloat in the wake of the lockdown, and your patronage can help them out. These small businesses provide jobs to your neighbors and keep money in your local economy. Whenever possible, buy your products from small businesses instead of big-box stores and major chains.

Wash Your Hands

It’s no secret that the pandemic has encouraged all of us to prioritize personal hygiene. In fact, 90% of Americans reported washing their hands more thoroughly after the outbreak. Frequent hand washing is a trend that can reduce rates of infection for numerous illnesses beyond COVID-19, including the common cold and the seasonal flu. Keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent illness and avoid spreading germs to others, so keep it up!

While no one can dispute the negative ramifications of the pandemic, this crisis has encouraged people around the world to pick up healthy habits and make positive lifestyle changes. Many of these trends have the potential to improve your health, happiness, and financial wellness into the future! So what positive changes have you noticed during the pandemic that you’d like to keep?

The World Needed A Break

Advertisements

Written last March 26, 2020

It’s like the world is ending
for the humans whose living
but the earth is mending
the toxicity the humans
keep creating.

The air is fresh to breathe
it’s sad that it come to this,
for the world to heal
we needed a disease.

Millions of lives are at stake,
it is a crisis for every state,
the world needed a break,
when will this evaporate?

PORTAL

Everybody’s out there doing something.
I’m in here staring at the screen laughing,
trying to forget the world’s problem
but I ended up sinking at the bottom.

I am here lying in bed wishing for a portal
to go back to when everything was normal.
Looking for an escape— take me away.
I would never look back and there I’ll stay.

5UPPORT JEEPNEY DRIVERS

Hello again everyone! I’m just here to promote and support my friend’s donation drive to help jeepney drivers in the Philippines who lost their source of livelihood due to the pandemic, now they are begging on the streets for some food to eat for them and their families.

During the quarantine for more than 3 months now they didn’t have any source of income, most of them rely on driving jeepneys to get on with their lives. This is not about working harder, this is about losing the only opportunity they have to earn and without the support of the gov’t.

So guys, if you could share this and even donate any amount please do. Thank you so much!

You can visit their facebook page for more info. https://m.facebook.com/5upport.5upport/

CAN I JUST RANT?

It has been a crazy weeks for us with this virus still out there, it is our true enemy but why does the government see the people as their enemy instead?

I used to hate talking about politics and I still do because I don’t know much about it. I hate arguing and I pretty much like to be ignorant with what’s happening to steer clear of negative vibes but right now it’s not just about politics, it’s also about being a humanitarian and turning a blind eye to what this fascist government is doing to our country and how they treat our fellow Filipinos just makes you like one of them.

Yes, given the fact that they still go outside amidst this pandemic and the government ordering the enhanced quarantine to somehow contain the virus from further spreading but the people barely make it through a day in their normal lives what more with this lockdown that their only form of providing for their family and for themselves is by working? And the government wants the people to listen when the message that they try to convey is anti-poor? How will you make the people listen if you try to communicate with them through fear and making them more hungrier than they were yesterday?

“Hunger unleashes that madman in us, it’s better to eat than be eaten.” – The Platform

To the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, I have not been a fan since your day 1 but I had hope for a change like you said. I tolerate your language because I guess that’s how you really are but in times like this a message of encouragement and hope is much needed from you rather than imposing threats and fear to your countrymen. People are finally waking up now Mr. President, we will no longer be quiet.

To the people defending this government including some of my friends and family, saying that what the president said was taken out of context, it’s not just about what he said because this wouldn’t even happen if the president was transparent with his concrete plan for this crisis (if there is such a plan). Where did the 200 Billion go? What did he do with his special power? What will happen to the Philippines? If you still don’t see why this is such a big issue, please open your heart and mind and see what this is doing to our less fortunate countrymen.
