What is the best way to begin to go outside after having so long of being in the indoors, isolated from our normal lives, trapped with lockdown and isolation? Many of us go out in the fresh air with a new set of priorities. We will be more grateful of our health, family members and acquaintances, and less inclined to go back to long hours and traveling for miles. We might not be so focused on money and status. Leaving our homes will be more about reconnecting with our relationships by spending time with friends and family, taking in nature, and valuing clean air, less congestion, and a more relaxed speed of living. A survey for 2020, commissioned by the bottle water company Evian, found that 70 percent of Britons expressed a desire to live a more sustainable lifestyle as a consequence of lockdown. They were also more aware of their footprint on the environment. They wanted to avoid flying and cut down on their carbon footprint and produce less waste, spend more time working from home and be respectful in their behaviour. - Consequently, many people are likely to keep their lockdown finds baking, or spending longer outdoors, but buying their daily food online. Online shopping has been a convenient way of shopping for regular purchases. Some will have found excellent suppliers of goods and services and an efficient method to organize their time. - Outdoor walks and biking rides are becoming increasingly popular or shared by families, or enjoyed alone for a break. Local nature trails and beauty spots near their homes is an unanticipated treat, and many plan on maintaining their fitness with regular fitness in the outdoors and scheduled personal time.

From a perspective of work, it's time to strike the right balance between working and running a business online and the requirement for more intimate face-to-face interaction. Virtual meetings and social networking through zoom or skpe have their place, but are exhausting when done too frequently, have no eye contact or personal connection and require high levels of concentration in the event that a number of people participate. They obstruct spontaneity and limit the opportunity for individual relationships to be built. A home office from home can be beneficial for specific tasks, freeing people to work from home while allowing them to take care of other areas of their lives.

Home-based work for a few, if not all work-related requirements could well be the way forward. As people return to work after a furlough, there won't be enough time to work at full-time. A part-time arrangement might not be a good reason to travel to work, with all the security and social-distancing concerns. Some tasks might be cut back to a minimum and eliminated to a minimum. Many businesses have found that moving to the internet extremely profitable, some rely on personal engagement and presence; hospitality, salons, hairdressing, and concerts are some of the examples. And of those businesses who have successfully adjusted to the duration of the epidemic, such as online delivery or coaching services, they could be faced with the dilemma that, as demand shifts, they need to revise their staffing levels as well as supply chains. Staff who are furloughed could never return to where they left off according to various estimates, up to 10 million employees could lose their jobs post-corona.
