What Do You Miss the Most While Sheltering in Place?
61% of people say that even if the stay at home order was lifted in mid-April, they would still try to stay home as much as possible.
There's no doubt, the coronavirus has changed the way we live overnight. According to the same survey referenced above from HuffPost/YouGov, 19% of people say they would go right back to the way they were living before the outbreak even though they're staying home now. So it got me to thinking... what do I miss the most about my old life before COVID-19?
That's easy! I miss going to church on Sundays. Sure, I still get the good word by streaming my church's services, but it's just not the same. I also miss volunteering at GREAT, where I'm in training to become a certified therapeutic riding instructor. I also miss riding horses with my friends and the fellowship I get to experience with other horse lovers by going to horse shows and events. I miss hanging out with my family and friends or going shopping or whatever it is I feel like doing at the time. Heck, I miss being able to hug a friend I haven't seen in a long time. What can I say? I'm a hugger!
I know everyone's lifestyle prior to the coronavirus pandemic was largely dependant on their situation in life, whether or not they have kids, their hobbies, etc... But I'm curious, what do you miss the most while sheltering in place? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below!
