Don’t Lose the Beneficial Changes You’ve Made in the Last 2 Years

When I look back, I’m amazed at all the changes that took place during the past couple of years. Almost overnight, people changed how they worked, ate, related to each other, and lived. Covid and our reaction to it changed everything.

This year, many of us have started venturing out and reconnecting with the world. And as we do, we’re bringing along the lessons we’ve learned over the past couple of years. We’ve made adaptions to our routines, work and how we did it, and many family activities.

We will never go back to the way things were before, but I know some of us are slipping back into old routines and habits, almost like they never left.

The last couple of years offered some lessons we can try to hold on to because they actually enabled us to live a better life. Many of those changes are very personal, but if we really take a wide view and truly look at some of the shifts we made, by choice or not, there is some value we should seriously consider incorporating into our lives on a more permanent basis.

I’m sure there are some changes that immediately come to mind, but there may be others that we have to really look to find, Whether they are large or small doesn’t matter, but we do need to actively choose to make those changes a part of our lives.

Wouldn’t it be a waste of so much effort to lose the kinds of changes we’ve made to our benefit? Isn’t it worth holding on to what’s working now for us that we never imagined before? If so, take a little time to think about what you’ve changed in your life that you want to keep and try to hold on to it as you take on the next stage of your life’s journey.
