Though the effects of this year will live on, as we move toward the dawn of 2021, we must keep positive thoughts for the upcoming year. So, does that mean in 2021 we are going to face more difficulties?
What has happened in 2020?
Before the first case of COVID-19 was identified in Wuhan, life was extremely busy. We were freely roaming from one place to another without worrying about anything. Our daily schedules were fixed and we were following a standard routine by maintaining a balance between work life and personal life. All of a sudden, life came to a halt where we were bound to stay indoors, use all possible hygiene methods, and do contactless activities. All sorts of traveling, eating out, and visiting places were shut completely as the virus was spreading at a very fast pace.
This led to locking ourselves in the home with the impose of lockdown in the city, state, and country. There were no communications with our next-door neighbor. Working from office converted to work from home, children started attending schools from home, home essentials were being delivered at doorstep and likewise many activities of our daily routine diverted their way. As a consequence, we all started feeling isolated, lonely and stressed.

However, in the near future, considering the current scenario, we all know that the circumstances may not improve as we hope them to improve.

In the upcoming year, how about starting fresh with positive vibes and without any stress of what is going to happen? I know it is not possible to do so but we can at least give it a try.
It is uncertain when life will become normal but even if it will become normal it will never be the same. The only way to keep ourselves healthy in the upcoming times is by having a positive attitude towards life and following all the safety guidelines.
