How Has Life Under Lockdown Affected Your Outlook
2 months under Coronavirus House Arrest has has an effect on all of us. It has been as close to a Zombie Apocalypse as anyone has ever seen – or imagined. And while we are for the most part stuck at home, we have seen that it is nowhere as bad as it could be.
We have not been hauled away and forced into FEMA Camps.
We were not welded into our homes (as people were in Wuhan, China).
We have not been forcibly vaccinated at the point of a gun.
Global Markets crashed, Unemployment skyrocketed, businesses have closed – but the government has tried to bail people out
We have Food
We are making more meals at home – less take out food
There have been shortages – but most people have managed
We have Entertainment – TV, Cable, Netflix, Disney TV, Amazon Prime, YouTube
We can communicate (phone, Social Media – Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube)
Pollution has decreased. Air is cleaner. Water is cleaner
Nature has grown up around us
Families have become closer
Good things have come from this. Not all completely positive. But not all bad.
The game today, please list things you have encountered that are GOOD about the Coronavirus Lockdown. This is an exercise forcing yourself to see things as good.
Please leave comments about the good you have seen. We will look at other aspects later.
I agree, Andrew, there are many good things that I too have noticed. When I’m out walking enjoying the sun & fresh air there are many more families out doing the same teaching their children about the critters, etc. walking with their dogs & enjoying each other. It seems there is more time to relax & notice so much around us that many times goes unnoticed. It seems easier to really appreciate the simple things.
My parents and my dog and myself have been quarantined together and it has been really nice getting this family time.
I’ve baked so many lovely things … Bosnian pita, chocolate rolls with cream cheese frosting, bread, bread rolls, tiramisu layered cake, sugar cookies 🙂 it has been so fun.
