As like any sort of innovation will fetch change in society; so post Corona social life will definitely bring up changes in life-styles in the world. The world has been suffering from the Corona effect since last year. It’s not only us, our 2 or 3 generation olders probably didn’t face this adverse effect of Coronavirus in their whole life. Really we are going through such a dangerous surprising period. Aren’t we?
We are social beings. But due to the pandemic situation, social and physical distance maintenance, not going outside unless for serious reasons, always wearing masks, sanitizing hands or using hand wash, virtual contacts and so on has been entered and practiced in our daily dictionary. Really how fast our world has changed dramatically, But naturally, we believe that despite going through very bad patches, we will overcome the current obstacles and will be back to our normal life- New normal lifestyle.
Probably the world will recover from the current financial crisis within a few years and also our next generation will read about the covid-19 and its effects in global economy and life-stles in their textbooks, but we, who have gone through these adverse effects of CoronaVirus, the impact will last for lifelong indeed.
On the flip side, from this hard time, we can find out new thoughts, new meaning of life, and with this understanding we can definitely change our future lifestyle. It’s our surrounding environments and its balance and impact, which makes us exist in this world. So the corona effect makes us think and understand our existence in a new way. Isn’t it?
Due to our longer home stay compared to earlier life, the world environment has been getting less emissions of Carbon-di-oxide and other harmful gases which eventually lead to cover up the environmental loss. So it’s a huge relief for the environment too. This will certainly lead us to become more friendly in the post corona world. We will become more health conscious and also will become more hygenic (using sanitizers, hand washing etc), which is going to be a positive sign indeed.
Also Corona effect forces us to minimize our expenditure for meeting up the financial crisis, which we are going through. So after the corona effect, people will try to consume as less as they can according to their budgets, which simply can be another positive effect in their lives.
Due to lockdown we used to spend our most precious times with our family members, which also wasn’t possible due to materialistic lifestyles, which I personally think is the biggest achievement in this corona period. People will like to maintain that lifestyle in the post covid-19 world as well as they become used to this. This simply will fetch and strengthen the most valuable family-bonding which has become weaker before Covid- outbreak.
Another interesting thing is that, still now there has been gender discrimination going on in families where normally males don’t prefer to perform kitchen related and other household works. But during this lock-down this tendency has broken down and this gives an opportunity to perform these household works equally, and also their approach to women also is changed after performing these jobs. They understand that these jobs are equally important and stressful. So this attitude will persist in post-covid world.
Corona effect also enforced to relocate office jobs to home based jobs through the remote working procedures. This certainly can contribute hugely in job sectors. Also SOHO (Small office/Home Office) systems are getting more popular these covid days and this is going to remain popular in post corona life too.
We will certainly become more dependent on digital technologies and this demand will rise significantly in post covid days. The use of online education systems, remote working facilities, sensor based lift system, where no human touch required, electric authentication rather than using physical signatures, using contactless cards instead of swipe cards- these uses will be going to rise in the post covid world.
So whatever happens, we have to face these new-normal lifestyles and act accordingly to resolve our issues to exist in the new post covid world. I firmly believe we will succeed in our new lifestyles and are going to enjoy this as well.
