I don’t remember saying to myself back in March, “Here’s what I want to accomplish during the pandemic”, but I do remember having a few ideas of some things I was hoping to do.
And I’ve done just about none of them.
Mostly because I’m lazy.
But back in March when this whole thing really got serious, I decided I was going to do my best to spend as much money as I could at smaller, local businesses. Not that I didn’t already do that, but I was going to be more focused on that task.
Getting take-out, growlers-to-go, paying it forward at a number of places. The wife & I were lucky enough to both keep working throughout this whole thing, so I figured I should do my best to help, especially in the service industry.
I also tossed around the idea of learning a new skill, like playing guitar, or a new language, or meditation….but I didn’t do shit. Again, because I’m lazy.
According to a recent survey, here’s the top goals people set for themselves during the pandemic:
- Eat healthier & follow a diet.
- Work out or exercise more.
- Have a more positive attitude.
- Learn something new everyday.
- Talk to a friend or loved one each day.
- Read more.
- Practice meditation or mindfulness.
- Learn a new hobby.
There’s still time left to accomplish these goals, even after this whole pandemic is over. But for now, I’m happy to just veg-out on the couch & watch horror movies.
