We all passed through the stagnated period during the lockdown. Taking a break, allowed us to realise the importance of our daily activities which became drastically limited with the start of the pandemic. However, now we have a chance to incorporate new things into our life, adding value to our personal development.
Our surroundings have a massive impact on our wellbeing. In many cases, family members respected the social distancing guidelines and stayed separated from each other for a long period of time. Reconnecting with significant people in our life will re-establish a strong relationship with them. Also, it is important to step back into our social commitments and to keep an active status. New opportunities come with new people and we have to be open to new exciting experiences.
On post-lockdown, our refreshed mindset might allow us to select new hobbies suitable for our personality. The freedom of a morning run is highly advisable for those who are facing a busy lifestyle. It will recharge your energy and keep you up for the upcoming day. “According to many athletes, doing a physical activity produces a feeling of ecstasy, lightness, and power.” (domyos.co.uk) Also, sports can moderate the levels of depression. It is time to put on your favourite pair of sneakers and get active. Meditation, yoga, and pilates are other alternatives to explore. In case you are not ready for facing the crowded gym and fitness centres, many classes led by professional trainers are available online. Do not make compromises with your body!
Another hobby such as booking an online art class or starting a blog related to your interests is an amazing opportunity to amplify your skills. Makings Musings is offering online classes of painting techniques suitable for all family members. Listening to free podcasts available online on Youtube and Spotify can enrich your knowledge of different sectors. It is important to be open-minded and make a selection of activities that excites you.
Stepping back into a routine is a productive way to invest in your time. Be focused on your goals and visualise the way of achieving them. In 24 hours, we can make a wise selection of things to be done, according to our aims. Time for reading a good book and attending an online class for language learning might be a smart choice. No goal is achievable without planning. Make sure to push yourself to accomplish all the necessary duties scheduled for the day.
Another thing to do post lockdown is supporting independent businesses and fashion companies which were financially affected during this period of time. After reopening a big amount of stores, independent fashion brands need our support and expose their product to a wide audience. The majority of these companies offer a small production of amazing quality garments, taking part in the Slow Fashion community brands.
Finally, we are allowed to discover more around us. Give a try to new coffee shops, restaurants, art galleries, and museums that you have not been to before. Getting adventurous and exploring new places for visiting will bring new experiences and opportunities to meet people. Consequently, that will bring you joy and fulfill your needs of communication, neglected during lockdown.
