An ample amount of time is available where in we can bring forward our hidden passions or talents (most of us are not even aware of); those things which we had been holding onto and always afraid of bringing in forward in our routine jobs.

Shifting from junk to healthy meals is the option left in the lock down. We tried, tried and tried. We succeeded in our attempts and discovered new taste buds within our homes.
5. Needed Essentials
Giving a break to luxurious items and living with the basic requirements has taught us that we had been living with too much of stuff we would be needing intermittently. So cutting out is difficult but not impossible. Let’s keep this trending and save our natural resources.

Humans staying at home has given a chance to nature to revive itself. Air quality has improved and fresh O2 level has increased. For the first time in history endangered species are seen in urban areas and the moment is created.
Real heroes like Sonu Sood has come forward and shown us the difference between reel life and real life heroes. We salute him! His work towards humanity and migrants is incredible. Offering them free transportation to reach their shelters is a benchmark. We need more heroes like him in society.

Working parents has commitments towards their work and personal lives and the pendulum keep them on their toes for maintaining balance especially for working mothers. Mandatory work from home is another opportunity one can erect bonding with kids and family.

10. Friend in need is a friend indeed
Last but not the least many connected unknowingly in the hard times. Many appeared as God’s angels by coming forward wishfully and did the needful apart from donations from celebrities and PM care fund.
