Due to the pandemic situation, Covid-19 has changed our lifestyles in various aspects, and forced us to avoid busy and bustling life. Isn’t it? It’s going to be a debatable issue, whether there will be changes when the effect of the Covid-19 will end permanently. But from my point of view, our thinking along with habits will be changed in a certain amount, which eventually will bring up some revolutionary steps towards life. You may ask me-how? Lets depict that in my way.
More Realistic- One thing for sure, Covid-19 effect has made us become more realistic. Due to the virus outbreak, so many people had lost their jobs, and had gone through very hard times, and many of those still are going through till now. Can you imagine the feeling of the job holder, who lost his or her job within a day or weeks? Some of the job losers are the only earning members of the family. These situations became worse in western developed countries, which potentially results in the collapse in the economy of the whole world. As per ILO report, the world has lost around 400 million full time jobs. So this certainly makes people become more realistic in every aspect of life. When Covid-19 outbreak will finish, the people will take more realistic steps towards life than previous times. I firmly believe, they will think at least twice before taking any decisions, which will reflect in their life-styles as well. So people will become more adjustable with the new normal lifestyle compared to pre-covid-19 life styles.
More hygienic and health conscious- This is another change that’s mostly expected to happen in post-covid-19 world. As due to the pandemic situation and its prevention purpose, we are becoming used to wearing masks and using sanitizers frequently. This healthy habit is going to rule the next few decades for sure. This positive approach will certainly make us less prone to diseases, which in fact make us live a healthy and safe life. People will become more health conscious resulting in substantial decrease in death rates.
More close to family- Certainly Covid-19 outbreak has shown us- the beauty of life- the family bonding. Before Covid-19 situation, we became too materialistic; no time for family, only for job and other surroundings, which deprived us from one of the most precious things of life- quality family moments. The ongoing job-crisis already creates and will continue to create more self-employed or entrepreneurs or freelancers who can work from home or can divert home to office indeed making the family to come closer than earlier times. From my point-of-view, this will continue after Covid-19 outbreak as well.
Dependency on Online/Remote work- The pandemic environment of Corona Virus has diminished lots of office oriented works. For example, office located clerk positions have become obsolete now-a-days in this pandemic environment. This place has been taken by the online freelancers, who can work remotely from their home, making the running business to flow smoothly. As companies are becoming accustomed to these scenarios, so after Covid-19 finishes, this trend will definitely continue. So office related jobs are going to be less, and remote work opportunities will continue to rise in the post Covid-19 world. Also the demand for more technical jobs will rise in order to cope up the situation.
So whatever the post covid-19 life would be, it would surely make us to believe in ourselves and will lead us to live a better and stronger world, as we will succeed to survive after one of the most dangerous virus outbreak in the world. Isn’t it? So stay positive and safe to battle this outbreak.
