It’s not a secret that these past eight months have been frustrating for many people during this pandemic. Here are ten things to look forward to after this pandemic is over.
1. Going to a restaurant
There have been many aspects of life that people have missed out on doing during this pandemic. One part that many people have missed during this pandemic is going to a restaurant in person. A lot of people miss having the ability to have a meal indoors without wearing a mask. Sitting down at a table, ordering food, experiencing the specific atmosphere, and enjoying great food and company is one of the many aspects of life that many people are looking forward to after the pandemic. Going to a restaurant is one of the many elements people took for granted before the pandemic and yearn to have back during the pandemic.
2. Going to a concert
There have been many aspects that have been taken away from people during this unfortunate and unexpected time. For many people, myself included, going to a concert and experiencing live music is an aspect of life that people is a great way to spend a day or an evening. There are only so many times you can listen and watch a band perform live online through zoom or other streaming devices. The significant aspect of going to a concert is people can share experiences and stories with other people who love music in person. Attending a show in person is one aspect that many people are looking forward to doing during life after the pandemic.
3. Spending time with family
One of the aspects of this pandemic that has negatively impacted many people is not seeing and visiting family members for eight to ten months. It has been rough navigating life during this pandemic, especially for the elderly, and it will be a sign of relief being able to get back to the way life once was before the pandemic turned our lives upside down. It will be a relief when people can spend time with family without worrying about pandemic protocols, social distancing guidelines, and wearing any masks. Spending time with family is a significant aspect that many people are looking forward to after the pandemic.
4. Going to the gym
One of the hardest-hit industries that have suffered during the pandemic is the gym and fitness industry. Gyms and wellness centers worldwide have shut down at one point in time during this pandemic. The way and ideology of people staying healthy and fit have changed during this pandemic while millions of people work out at home. There are many benefits from working from home, but there are a fair amount of cons. One aspect of going to the gym people love is focusing on working out without any distractions. There are a few limitations in working out from home, lack of equipment, distractions, and lack of space. It will be great to get back into the gym during life after the pandemic is over.
5. Going to a movie
After the pandemic, one aspect of life and activity that many people are eager to get back to is going to the movie theaters and catching a show. There are not many better ways to spend a night or an afternoon than hanging out with friends and going to see a movie in theaters. Going to a film, smelling the aroma of popcorn, sitting in a dark room, and seeing a feature film with friends or family is a simple joy in life taken away from people during this pandemic.
6. Traveling without restrictions
A major topic of concern and controversy during this pandemic has been people having the ability to travel out of their bubble. After the pandemic, one aspect of life that many people will look forward to doing is traveling anywhere without any worries or restrictions due to pandemic protocols. Having the freedom to travel to a destination out their county, state, or country is very coveted by many people because it is a way people can relax. Traveling is also an excellent way for people to unwind, experience new cultures, traditions, rituals, and bond closer together with family and friends.
7. Hanging out with friends in person
One aspect of life that many people around the world will cherish more in life after the pandemic is over is the activity of hanging out with friends. Whether it be for a couple of minutes or a couple of days, hanging out with friends is one activity that people take for granted. People don’t understand how such a simple activity can positively affect their lives. There are only so many Zoom, facetime meetings, and socially distanced conversations people will have with friends before they start to get restless and want to see their friends in person. Hanging out with friends in person without any restrictions is one aspect of life to look forward to in life after the pandemic.
8. Going to Theme and Amusement Parks
During the last eight to nine months, these uncertain times have been very tiring, tedious, and exhausting for many people. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken away many simple joys in life, like going to an amusement park. It will be lovely to go to an amusement park with family and friends and not have to worry about catching a deadly disease. Going to a theme park is an excellent way for a family to bond closer together. Theme and Amusement parks are a perfect tool for parents trying to raise young children. A theme park allows kids to go wild, be a kid, and all while giving parents the ability to unwind and get some fresh air and exercise chasing around their kids.
9. Going to bars
If you are of the age, then you know this pandemic has hit companies and establishments like bars, taprooms, and nightclubs the hardest. It has been physically impossible for bars, restaurants, and night-clubs to stay open and functional during this pandemic due to all the rules and regulations that come with running a business in the food industry while navigating a worldwide pandemic. It is going to be so lovely to have the ability to go to a bar, have a drink or two with some friends, and be able to not worry about trying to survive a pandemic. Many people are looking to going to bars and hanging out with friends during life after this pandemic.
10. Not wearing masks
One of the most discussed topics of concern people have been arguing about since the start of this pandemic has been the theory of wearing facemasks. It seems like everyone and their mother the last eight to nine months. One aspect of life that many people are looking forward to during life after the pandemic is not to wear a mask every time people go outside of their bubble. To be clear, people need to wear masks when they go outside. By wearing masks, we can stop the spread of COVID-19. If people wear a mask when they go out, socially distance from others, and follow protocol, eventually we will throw the face masks away and live life mask-free, like before the pandemic.
