10 Ways to Help Manage Your Life in the“New Normal”

A few days ago, the government announced that we will be moving to the so-called “new normal.” But, what is this “new normal”? Will we ever get back to pre-pandemic normal?The term “new normal” has been used in a variety of other contexts to imply that something which was previously abnormal has become commonplace.

Is it now the way of life across the globe? Or, will it have an end?

How are you adapting so far to this change? Despite the transition, the entire nation is still under quarantine and some curbs remain to prevent a second wave of infections. So, life will not be back to normal until the COVID-19 cases don’t decrease or as long as there is still no vaccine.

The changes in the economy, work, home, social life, business, and communication has caused drastic effects to our physical and mental well-being. People shifted from a corporate office to work from home setup; from being wanderlusts to home buddies; from having a social nightlife to binge-watching Netflix. For some, it is much harder as they have lost their means of living.

How can change be positive in this kind of situation? Can we choose to accept, adapt, and benefit from it? What can we do?

We can no longer change what is already here. The best way to deal is to embrace the change wholeheartedly as an inevitable part of life. Look for ways in this “new normal” to make your life more productive and fulfilling.

While this new normal has been a bit of a shock to the system, I’ve always tried to look at the bright side. Though all of us are in a different facets of life, I hope that we are all finding ways to cope.

Here are 10 ways to help you manage your life through these troubling times.
