Ten lessons I'm holding on to
By Elizabeth Mamacos - Parent24
Each day of lockdown we managed the children, worked through our task lists, rationed our groceries to avoid leaving home and kept in touch with family and friends via the web.
We taught the kids the correct hygiene protocols, took our daily exercise within the required hours and I learnt to sew masks.
But every day, at least once a day, I found myself exclaiming "I can't believe this is happening!"
Nonetheless, I also learnt a lot about my family and our daily lives, and I found that some of the adjustments we made were good for us.
These are ten of the lockdown lifestyle habits that we'll be keeping even when the Covid-19 pandemic is a distant memory.
