Life Lessons Quarantine Taught Me

Remember that life’s greatest lessons are usually learned at the worst time and from the worst mistakes.

Over a period of time, quarantine has taught us lessons about life. It made us realize that life is too short to be taken it for granted and to live with regrets. We do not realize how blessed we are until everything is taken away from us.

The best lessons in life are learned during hard times.

Every little thing in life has changed dramatically in a short period of time. It is hard to let go of our normal habits and daily routines. We cannot just go outside and live our ordinary lives.

Being quarantined taught me a lot of things about myself and what I might want for my future. I hope that after this pandemic, we will become much better, stronger, and wiser.

It taught me to appreciate little things. Being able to look at things with positivity is a valuable life lesson. No matter how difficult our life is, always be thankful and grateful. We will find ourselves happier and contented. We must not live with guilt and hate. There is something positive in every situation. Remember always to keep spreading positivity.

It taught me to enjoy more of my own company. Being alone allowed us to take a chance to reflect on our lives. This quarantine motivated me to accelerate my thoughts and my feelings. It gave me the opportunity to rediscover and spend so much time with myself. At first, it really bothered me. Being alone can be exhausting and lonely. But as time goes, I learned to appreciate the perks of living solo.

It taught me the value of our workplace. Not all have the option and privilege of working from home. But it is possible. Those engaged in manual labour cannot work from home. I am blessed to have the option of working from home. Thank you, Boss.

It taught me that it is safer at home. By staying at home, we prevent the spread of the virus and reduce the risk of infection. Staying at home is not as bad and hard as you think it is. We should be eager to sacrifice a little bit for the common good. Find hobbies and try anything you have not tried before to kill the boredom. At first, you will find it boring, but overtime you will get used to it.

It taught me to go back to the kitchen. Cooking is a life skill that helps us understand how to eat healthy and budget money. Cooking is not that hard; rather, it is a fun way to enjoy something delicious afterwards.

It taught me how important it is to have an emergency fund. While we were still living our normal lives, we often forget about saving for an emergency fund. There is no better time to start than now while we still can.

What did you learn about life in these times? No matter what life throws at us, we have to keep going.
