POLL: Did the pandemic have any positive effect on your daily habits?

It would be fair to say that the pandemic has definitely had a negative impact on our daily lives and society in general.

From economies almost being pushed to the brink of recession, to a deterioration in mental health amongst many people, resulting from a society that has drastically altered our lifestyles for the past year and a half since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.


Although death and despair have been the prominent themes of the Covid-19 situation, is it possible to seek some form of positivity from the pandemic? Did you partake in healthier habits as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic?

To some people, it can be as simple as just going out for walks/exercising more often, to others it could be learning a new skill or taking up a new hobby.

Maybe you started eating healthier and drinking more water, as recent figures from the Ishka Irish Spring Water survey revealed that Irish people drank more water during the pandemic.


Many people have also partaken in routines relating to personal hygiene, such as washing their hands in more frequent intervals.

As the majority of our typical social interaction was cut off during the pandemic, did you learn how to be more comfortable with being alone?

It’s completely understandable how some people cannot relate to the above points as the prologued situation continues to take its toll on our wellbeing.

That being said, if you experienced any outcome from the pandemic, negative or positive, please submit your answer below.
