In a few months, the mayhem wrought by covid-19 has changed us in ways one can’t imagine. We thought that the lock down will end by a week or so, but here we are after five months scared to hug our family members.
As people group revive and individuals are all the more frequently out in the open, the expression “physical removing” (rather than social separating) is being utilized to invigorate the need to remain at any rate 6 feet from others, just as wearing face veils. “social separating” is a term that was utilized before in the pandemic as individuals remained at home to help forestall the spread of the infection. Presently as everything is reviving and individuals are in open all the more frequently, physical removing is utilized to pressure the significance of keeping up separation when in open territories.
Our heartbeat rises every time the guard scans our temper. During this period when we are held hostage by an invisible enemy, we get caught between fear and anxiety such as worry about getting the virus when you go to the grocery but one should know when to cope with them on our own and when to seek help. Such matters are adaptive when you can use your anxiety as a motivation to protect yourself and your family by following the guidelines recommended by the government. You can deal with this phase by keeping a meaningful routine to keep yourself preoccupied.
When humans went into lock down, we adapted to our forced new life in lock down quite quickly. Being a tech-savvy generation we shifted to digital offices(work from home), Zoom conferences, Classrooms- an Id password away, video calling our friends and family to stay connected. We learned to live our lives without maids, without restaurants, started cooking the restaurant’s food at home. We learned to manage in less ration and this is what pandemic taught us LESS IS MORE!
And while we stayed locked, Wild animals started wandering around the cities across the world and experts claimed that the ozone layer is also recovering itself. The smog in most of the cities lifted and (AQI) Air Quality index was in the green zone in most of the cities. It is giving us this very uncommon understanding into exactly the amount of a wreck we people are a creation of our wonderful planet.
The World Health Organisation chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “Covid-19 is reminding us of a simple but vital truth: we are one species, sharing one planet.” This short hiatus only serves to show us how poorly we have lived our lives so far and to give a brief taste of how it could have been having we lived life differently. We should stop being the foe of nature, and rather become its companion.
