Who would have thought we would ever experience a global lock-down, be instructed to social distance, be given stay-at-home orders, and be constantly barraged by mainstream media that only wants to give the worst news possible? Life goes on, but not as we know it
The Covid-19 pandemic has transformed the ways we live, work, socialise, and move around the world. While we struggle to understand the ripple effects of the coronavirus pandemic the trends are centred around the change in lifestyles; for example the rethinking of ambitions, the end of the traditional eight-to-five workday, a re-evaluation of social circles and how businesses may start to look beyond profits. Covid-19 has kept most of the world in their homes. It has awakened in some of us to the first inkling of community in a long while. We feel the absence of touch even more acutely and are gravitating toward shared experiences.
