Well don’t get me wrong, Covid 19 is terrible and I have no doubts about it, but even the worst situation can bring some positive effects even if it is unintentional.
Air pollution has reduced drastically, and we are breathing purer air thanks to the number vehicles off the road and almost negligible air traffic.
City workers are enjoy the days of reduced stress due to time spent in commuting to work.
Organizations are discovering the joys of work from home – they are saving loads of money on electricity, housekeeping, cafeteria and travel.
People are buying less , consuming less and wasting less – put it down to non availability of supplies or lockdowns.
Hygiene is getting its rightful place in life. I am washing hands more often, cleaning the door knobs, handles taps and such more often. Good habits are worth cultivating. It is said that when you do something for 21 days it becomes a habit, hopefully the world will be a cleaner place after Covid 19.
Social distancing could give people more time to cultivate hobbies and interests. I saw my neighbor taking pictures of my garden today, I have never seen him on the terrace in the last five years I have lived in this house.
Parents are now doing hands on parenting without shipping of their kids to football, basketball, swimming , summer camps etc.
Pet are happier as they see their masters and mistresses at home all day, as they are working from home.
More people are cooking at home and discovering the joys of cooking due to fear of eating contaminated food.
This may also be a opportune time for couples to work on their relationships. It may also generally be a time for catching up with dear ones.
These are some positives, right?
Do you think Covid 19 has some positive effects?
