Top ten positive outcomes from the pandemic

We’ve all received a few wake-up calls in the last few months, and being reminded of any mix of the points below has been one of the greatest benefits of this whole Covid experience.

Our NHS is amazing – The doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers, medics… all of them are true heroes.

Health matters – Not just because it helps us feel good at the time, but because being healthy helps us fight illness if it does strike.

There’s nothing like a good declutter – Lockdowns have given many of us a chance to clear out unnecessary clutter in our homes. And boy, has it felt good once it’s done.

We miss structure, purpose, and progress when they’re not around – We may all dream of holidays where we have nothing we have to do, but doesn’t the world seem like it grinds to a halt when structure, purpose and progress aren’t around?!

The four walls around us aren’t a hotel – They’re our home. How we choose to decorate, manage, and use that space can have a huge impact on how we enjoy our leisure time.

Value our wildlife – How we behave has a huge impact on the wildlife around us. Who didn’t manage to spot more animals during lockdown?

Exercise is great – And not just because it keeps us healthy, but because it can be safely sociable whilst we’re outside enjoying nature.

We CAN be grateful for what we have – When the shops are shut and you can’t go anywhere, suddenly the most insignificant things can make your day.

Pollution CAN be reduced – It was a fabulous eye-opener just how much pollution dropped whilst lockdown progressed, and this has hopefully inspired many businesses to investigate how they can keep the good work going.

Community is important – The acts of generosity and kindness that have been shown in support of neighbours and the greater community have been inspiring.
