In this time of crisis, there are a lot of things going on. Surely, with your home quarantine experience, you have plenty of time realizing how your life has been. You are often thinking about stuff that somehow causes you to worry and fear. That’s okay. For sure, most people right now are probably thinking the same thing. And given this pandemic situation, I bet you already figure out some of these life lessons you learn too late.
There’s A Lot Of time – If you are often procrastinating and usually say that you have all-time in the world, you might want to reconsider. Just think about what is happening right now. The pandemic is causing a severe problem where it currently restricts you from doing a lot of things. Now that you only have limited time to be out there, perhaps you already realized that time is precious because there’s no way you can predict what might happen in the future. So when this is all over, try not to take time for granted.
You Can Change Easily – Well, at some point, you might say that there is no greater power than change. However, changing and adapting to things around you is not easy. It does not happen naturally, and you might have serious issues dealing with new things in your life. So you can’t wait around the corner and expect the world to adjust for you because it won’t provide you the life you imagined. The only way to progress in this situation is by taking the initiative. This whole situation is uncontrollable. Thus you need to commit 100% into the required life adjustment.
Complaining Won’t Solve Anything – Admittedly, you probably have wasted a lot of time complaining about your situation. But does it solve anything? Perhaps right now, you know that complaining will never solve your life issues. It doesn’t even contribute to motivating you to look at things differently. Every time you complain, you are only bearing yourself into the pit of negativity that soon piles up. And one day, you’ll self-destruct.
Regretting Missed Opportunities – Understandably, there are a lot of things you missed due to the pandemic situation. Perhaps you canceled some of the most important events on your schedule. But regretting it and finding things to blame for that isn’t doing you any favors. If you keep whining over the chances you didn’t take when life outside was still okay, you will never focus on the bigger picture, which is keeping your mental state intact.
Health Habits Are Life-Long Battle – Take a minute to think about your ideal self. Of course, at this pandemic time, you want to be as healthy as much as possible to avoid getting caught with the infection. But how much effort do you put in obtaining your health goal? Surely, you can find a lot of excuses not to eat healthy food, sleep in time, or exercise during this crisis. But if you understand the importance of staying healthy, you will first consider the lifestyle you have right now.
Expect The Unexpected – No one tells you how inevitable things are. There is no way you can predict something to happen. It is safe to assume that things will always go wrong. That is precisely the reason why this whole pandemic situation is taking longer than expected. Like you, people are trying to live and survive the situation because that is all they can do. Their abilities are limited to options that are only available in pieces. By now, perhaps you realize that nothing entirely beats preparation and planning.
