Believe it or not, there is good news to come from Coronavirus..
Since early January, the spread of Coronavirus has seen global effects. COVID-19 has spread to over 150 countries and is now present on every continent except Antarctica. We don’t need to tell you about all the negative ways it has impacted the everyday Australian lifestyle. There’s enough of that talk already.
While we’re sensitive to the plight of our world, we can’t help but notice the good things that are happening around us every day. If you look for them, they’re actually everywhere.
Social isolation and other Government policies implemented to combat and slow COVID-19 have resulted in many of us taking a retrospective approach to everyday activities and family life.
Not only are adults learning to appreciate the little things in life again, we’re teaching our children too..
- Exercise – trampolines, bike rides, bushwalks and backyard cricket!
- Board games – be honest. How long is your monopoly game lasting without a tantrum?
- Home and garden projects – it’s a beautiful time of year to be outside and maybe even planting a vegie garden.
- Chalk drawings and messages of positivity on driveways and roads.
- Reading books – remember those?
- Bear hunts. Are you part of this movement? (check it out here)
Some industries have experienced an absolute boom.. happily some of these include smaller independents too.
- Cleaning services
- Delivery services
- Drive in movies
- Grocery stores
- Liquor stores
- Meal-prep delivery services
- Game makers and retailers
- Fitness equipment
- Exercise apps
- Landscaping and garden supply companies
- Logistics and distribution companies
What happens next?
That’s up to us. What happens next will depend on how the Covid-19 pandemic continues. In Australia we can be happy that the daily increase in confirmed COVID-19 cases has decreased significantly between the 25th March and yesterday. As a nation, we are working toward a best-case scenario where the virus will be contained in the near future and continues to slow. The lagging demand will likely bounce back relatively quickly, particularly with the help of tailored government measures as we are seeing daily.
Until then stay at home, stay busy and stay safe.
