In the wake of COVID-19, we are all going through a shift nowadays.Today, I aim to talk about the shifts and its effect on us.Let us start.
Firstly, is the shift from outdoor working to indoor working.It is a big shift for all especially who are in the 9 to 5 jobs.All you folks out there don’t worry.
All will be settled and you will soon devise a strategy to cope up with the indoor workings.
Secondly, is the shift in the lives of housewives.I would rather say not so much.Despite the extra hours of cleaning,still you get plenty of sleep to make up for the deprivation of accumulated sleep.
Frankly, I have never slept so much in my entire life than I do nowadays.
Thirdly, is the shift in our minds.We have started looking at life in a different way altogether.
Our focus on looking things in a particular way has changed.Nothing is immortal in this world.Make the best of it while you can.
Fourthly, businesses are taking a huge U -Turn.There was a time when doing small businesses were considered a shame and people invested in big businesses.
However, due to COVID 19, the businesses that are profiting the most are the groceries and the pharmaceuticals.
So, those of you thinking about investing in businesses ,you know what the best options are in these times.
Fifthly, is the change of lifestyle. Earlier,people’s choices in eating were not so healthy but now the main focus is on healthy eating and drinking to the best possible way.
We were aware of the organic foods and herbs and all but who knew, we would be doing the same we had been hearing for so long.Drinking warm water and boosting our immunity system.
Sixth, is the shift in our bodies.We are all fighters.We may or may not be diagnosed with COVID-19 but my gut feeling is that we are all infected.It is only our immune systems that is keeping us kicking.
So don’t panic.Be firm in your mind and stay positive.And do not see and listen to all that is going around regarding COVID-19.If we have made it this far, we will pull through it wholly.
Seventh,is the shift in our hearts.People have opened their hearts for everyone around especially the ones in need.
However,only if politicians in Pakistan who have filled their piggy banks with treasure can show a more open heart in this pandemic.
Eighth, is the shift in our mode of communication.We have become more connected with people around the globe especially the ones dear to us and even those who we know not.So social distancing has come as a blessing in disguise.
Connect more with people around and far apart and learn and open yourself.Let people be a part of your life and be a part of others life in the most positive way possible.
And Lastly, be Thankful for what you have and show that thankfulness in the things you do and lives you affect.
In the end I would like to reiterate that this will pass too like so many pandemics.But what we treasure today in the form of shift, acknowledgement and friendships will go a long way.
