If you are wondering when will this end, you’re not alone. A lot of things have changed since the lockdown has been lifted — businesses and public areas start to open up again, and most people slowly go back to working in their offices. We gradually transition to the “New Normal,” yet going out still scares me because there are still a number of cases out there. Until a safe, effective vaccine is available, there will continue to be a risk of infection. What are your post-pandemic plans?
Even though the new normal sounds scary and jarring, our life should move forward. What should we do? We have to change our behavior to prevent the spread of the virus. Let’s continue practicing social distancing, wearing a face mask, hand washing, safe grocery shopping and food handling, and being mindful. Do not go out if it’s not necessary. Maybe these small efforts will result in a better situation for all of us. As with anything, a little goes a long way, right? When this is all over, Let’s all take part in restoring our community.
Earlier this year, I made plans on how I can make my year fruitful, but like most of you, those plans were set aside. So now, I decided to share with you what are my post-pandemic plans to help myself and the community bounce back.
Support Small and Local Businesses
Local Businesses need us now more than ever. We can show our care for the community we live in by supporting them. It’ll give the local economy a chance to thrive. It’s also my way of giving thanks because they go out every day and trying their best to make an honest living despite the global pandemic. Another way of showing my support is by promoting them on my social media platforms by posting and sharing about their products, promos, etc.
Produce Positive Content for my Readers
The news is making us feel anxious. In times like this, we need an antidote to keep our positive attitude and move forward with determination and hope. This is why I decided to write a positive content for you to feel inspired and motivated in my little way.
Explore more of the Philippines
There may be no better place to explore than my own country graced by dazzling beaches and historical sites. After this pandemic, I will support our local tourism by traveling to domestic places. It is safer and more affordable. I can’t wait to explore our local tourist destinations, eat local cuisines, support homegrown products, and help our economy move forward. I will take this opportunity to accomplish my local travel bucket list.
My Local Travel Bucket List
- Go back to San Juan Beach in La Union, learn how to surf, nd try all their famous local restaurants.
