This time, if used well, may be the impetus for developing a variety of self-improvement changes, including enhanced wellbeing. Hopefully, they will have improved our relationships and will have helped us all to achieve a more satisfactory work-life balance. But what happens when normal service resumes and suddenly there’s no time for all of the things that were making such a difference?
Identify which of your new pastimes mean the most to you and to turn those into rituals that you can fit into your everyday. Those that are enjoyable but realistically too time-consuming for regular schedules can be turned into traditions or once-a-month activities so that they remain in some shape or form.
On the other side, I imagine that, for most, mealtimes will undoubtedly return to their far less adventurous, pre-COVID-19 state; we may not manage daily 5k runs; and gardens will grow wild once more. but those lessons learned, habits formed and memories shared will nonetheless be life-changing.
