What will the new normal be?
Now we have had a pandemic the question I have to ask what will the new normal be? My normal for the last year has been anything that is confined in my flat. I have not seen much of the outside world. When this pandemic is over everything is going to change and I think it is going to change quickly.
I do not want to see the world getting into a scary place where everyone is wearing face masks after the pandemic. Will kids be more scared to interact together? Will adults refrain from physical contact?
What I would like to see personally would-be offices be less focused on location of work. I think it is hilarious that in 2020 we were still being forced to work in a building when we do not have to.
I would like to see more kindness in the world and that the kindness that we have seen over the last year continues.
I know for me, my new normal will include going outside at least once a day even walking up and down my street a couple of times. I will locate somewhere that I can work at least once a day to get out of my flat once a week.
Let’s make sure that the new normal is not a scarier place than we are currently in.
Stay safe and well out there.
