As long as there is no cure and no vaccine for this virus the way we live our everyday lives will keep changing. Everyone has lost the desire for physical contact and we all avoid touching and being touched, for a good reason. In the last couple of months, human contact has become one of the most feared human gestures as well as spending time with people in a small room. But we have been taking small steps towards normality. Trying to get back to our pre-pandemic lives such as planning a spontaneous trip or sitting down for dinner or going out for drinks. But while there is still a threat of the virus spreading our lives will continue to change. So, after COVID-19 passes what will our normal lives look like?
Working life After Coronavirus
We can all agree that people who struggle the most are working people. Ever since pandemic has started employees who had never thought that they will work from home have found themselves having to learn how to swim in those waters. So many people have lost their jobs and others have to work crazy shifts in order to save lives. Now that things are opening up people are having to go back to their offices and risk catching COVID-19 in order to provide for their families. Even though there are so many laws and precautions that we need to take and follow, there is no guarantee that you won’t get sick or spread it to anyone. Coronavirus has shined a light on how your employment statuses can change in a blink of an eye and just how hard we work to keep your families happy and safe.
We can only speculate how working life will change after coronavirus; it will be interesting to see what will happen. We might not have face to face meetings, offices might become larger or many companies will decide on letting people work from home. Until this is all over, we can’t predict how our work lives will change.
Social Interactions After Coronavirus
No matter how understanding and supportive of the lockdown you are or antisocial and prefer to be alone, being separated from your family and friends and not knowing when you will see them again is scary and hard. Even though we are somewhat allowed to see our friends and family we are still not allowed to kiss, hug or get closer than two meters. But we are creatures of habits so will we go back to our old tactile ways once there is no threat of getting sick. Our new best friends have become companies such as AMD MED that manufacture masks that will protect us from the virus. Another thing to think about is that we grow, learn and thrive as a direct result of us interacting with other people. In order to develop and work on our wellbeing, we need to have face-to-face social interactions. Our needs will not change no matter what. But this pandemic isn’t all just bad things. Because of COVID-19, we have seen that people can unite for the common good.
Travelling After Coronavirus
In the last couple of months, there have been places that allow travelling. Some will have laws such as quarantining for two weeks some don’t have any at all. As we live in an increasingly globalised society, being able to travel is the biggest change during this pandemic. But as people have been stopped from travelling around the world, staycations have been more and more popular. The question is will people still choose to visit all the local attractions and enjoy their states and countries or will travelling go back to normal once all the restrictions are lifted?
Unfortunately, no one can predict the future. In the end, now that we are experiencing something so scary and life-changing, maybe we will appreciate things that we normally take for granted.
