The last couple of months were some of the strangest and toughest times for everybody. We have seen such massive restrictions on travel and social life after the coronavirus. Physical business meetings, sports events, conferences, were down.
People all over the world are being asked to stay home and maintain distance to reduce the risk of infection. We all have been following the rules and regulations generated by the government as COVID-19 brought a wave of negative outcomes, death and terrible illness. But as they say, no matter what life throws at us, we need to learn to deal with it gracefully—see the good in every bad. Well, the pandemic situation sure has taught us some very important lessons for life.

- Learn to Live within You

1. Stay in Touch with Family
Life has changed so much for most of us in this modern world. Advancement of technologies, changing cultural norms, change in priorities and fueled up with new connections on the internet. It took apart many of us from our family and friends with whom we grew up.
We forget the value of family, we forget how important it is. No one takes a stand for you when you are in trouble, but your family. This lockdown has taught us the importance of family, we have spent much more time with our family and enjoy every moment of life and sharing our joys and sorrows with them gives great satisfaction and results.
2. Gratitude to Doctors
In the last couple of months, we have seen massive restrictions all over the world. The whole world is facing a severe pandemic situation. This coronavirus took the life of many people. The most fitted example for this is ITALY.
Italy has one of the finest medical services in the world, yet they failed to save the lives of their citizens. Still they never back down and treat every corona victim and secure their life. The only hope for people is doctors and truly they are like god to us. They endure late-night shifts, long hours, and stand on their feet all day, but they do it just for us. Many of them get infected with the virus while treating, still, they are treating patients and saving lives. We should be thankful to them and show some gratitude to them.
3. Be Indebted and Appreciate Nature
Nature is the most beautiful thing ever created in this world. But, we never appreciated it, we never thought about it, we never understood what it gave us. We have disconnected ourselves from the natural world that it is easy and often convenient to forget that nature remains as giving as ever, even when it is vanishing bit by bit. But this pandemic of coronavirus teaches us how important nature is to us. In this lockdown, it started healing itself from the damage we gave it. We started getting fresh air, rivers and lakes started getting even cleaner, lesser pollution. The natural world provides less tangible but just as important, gifts in terms of beauty, art and spirituality. We should be thankful for it and appreciate what it provides.
4. Strengthen Your Immune System
Our immune system does a remarkable job to protect us from illness and fights with the foreign cells. In this epidemic situation due to Coronavirus all over the world, we need to keep our immune system strong enough. As no vaccine for COVID-19 has been introduced we have to take a balanced and proper diet to boost our immune system. This COVID-19 teaches us a life lesson that no matter what happens in life. We don’t know what and when we have to face in the future which affects our health. We need to get our immune system boosted so that we can fight against any disease, any pandemic.
5. Society has a Heart
This pandemic situation shows us that humanity is still alive in the heart of society. In this situation, we saw that people help others without worrying yourself by providing food, shelter, medicine and other essential things of livelihood. Many organisations come forward to provide personal protective equipment, meals from their factory, providing shelter for isolation and donating a part of their income or savings for the welfare of weaker section of society. Government take some steps to help the society by providing food, cash, medical facility and some other facilities. But in this difficult time, there is the big role of our medical faculty who serve their services to the society with enthusiasm without worrying their life.
6. Be Conversant with Cooking
Everyone is fond of eating but not everyone knows how to cook. Eating is good when you are getting delicious food on your table. But, when it comes to the point when you have to prepare food for you own many of us step back. In these pandemic times, many of us stayed away from family even in the lockdown when there was no chance to go back home. Many of us were struggling for food but in the meantime, many of you learned how to cook how to feed yourself. In my opinion, everyone should know how to cook. It will help you to survive when you are alone. Even cooking is incredibly rewarding, you enjoy the food even more when you have prepared it and you take care of proper hygiene as well.
7. Learn to Live within You
When we talk about parties, travelling, interacting, we talk about extroverts. These people cannot stay alone. This is the best medicine for depression but sometimes situations get too complicated that we have to stay alone, we cannot go out, we cannot travel, we cannot interact more and more. COVID-19 is the best to fit in this situation. This coronavirus teaches us how to enjoy when you are alone, our mind and body is our home. We have to learn how to love it and how to live within it.
8. Stay Hygienic and Clean
In a clean and well-maintained environment that is cleaned regularly. The risk of transmission of pathogens can be minimized considerably. The personal benefit of good hygiene is having better health. Keeping your body clean helps prevent illness and infections from bacteria or viruses. The most important and simple way to keep germs from spreading is washing your hands regularly. This Epidemic of coronavirus teaches us a great lesson for being clean and hygiene whether there is a virus or not we should keep ourself and our surroundings clean.
9. Be Ready to Sacrifice
There is no doubt that it has been difficult staying home and living life smoothly like before. Many people suffer a lot like; people caught in their homes, can’t get essential things on time, getting worried about their financial status and aims. So by this, some people might even feel that ruptures their human individual rights. However, when it comes to the greater good, one should always be willing to sacrifice a little bit of that freedom with great pride. A balance between individual rights and public safety is an ever-changing thing. So everyone should be ready to trade a little bit of your freedom for the greater good of the public whenever it needs.
10. Everyone could work Remotely
We have learned in this pandemic situation that jobs are possible to do from home. Coronavirus has spread this much that it gives the restriction to avoid offices and work from home but also we learned that work can be done remotely. This leads to less wastage of time and more work is done. We can reduce our office or family conflicts by giving time to both. It increases the working relationship as well without lowering quality and productivity. There should be a system where everyone could work from home and promote work-life balance
Through this coronavirus epidemic, we have faced a certain number of problems in our life but also learned some great life lessons. Through this, we conclude that the virus doesn’t have any nationality; it can spread anywhere it’s upon us how careful we can be. By helping others in different ways prove that it is not about me or you, it’s about us. We learned that, yes we can change the climate by not ignoring its beauty in fact help the environment by reducing the pollution. The most important thing we learned is health is way more important than wealth. I am sure you have also learned some lessons from this, if you want to share some with us then feel free to tell us by connecting over Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Till then, have a joyful and healthy lifestyle!
