The current situation has rendered us from our freedom to get out of our houses. Some people stuck far from their homes and others were bound to remain in their houses. From 25th March the nationwide lockdown came into effect. Although the lockdown gave a chance for the family members to spend more time with each other, this had burdened the homemakers with more responsibilities and tasks. Handling young children is not an easy task and the fathers don’t help usually. Taking care of the elderly is also a hectic job. But now as the chances of lifting the lockdown are becoming high, life will return to the norms.
Life Post Lockdown.
Humans have adapted to survive and face any kind of predicament. Amidst the lockdown, people have known and realised the importance of life and freedom. People have come closer to each other, helped the needy and shown that kindness still exists in this world. Life will continue like before but people especially homemakers will embrace new qualities. I, as a housemaker, have summarised some of them as:
Utilising resources efficiently.
Restricting our outdoor activities, we were left with limited supplies. Also when we were given a chance to restock most people could not stock up all the required things . Housemakers came forward and used their wits to maintain the household. This quality will benefit every family.
Our respected Prime Minister has also told to become “Atma Nirbhar”. Though he had various motives for promoting this, we can do our part by gaining new skills. We can build a window garden or small nursery to sustain our family. Common vegetables like potato, tomatoes and onions can be easily grown at home. There are many videos on YouTube and Instagram which can help you learn some tricks.
Awareness of hygiene and cleanliness.
This pandemic has taught that the best way to contain and suppress and communicable disease is maintaining self-hygiene. In a family, a mother teaches their children these habits and make sure they follow them. After the quarantine, almost every individual will maintain proper hygiene and abstain from doing activities that can spread the disease.
Make your passion a profession.
Lockdown has lasted for more than two months of time. Many courses were made free online. People learnt new languages, courses and other arts. Homemakers have also learnt new talents. Whether it may be a new recipe, gardening, decorating or coming up with a budget for a family vacation after lockdown. All will be worthwhile. Life after quarantine won’t be easy as before. Learning new skills will help people to face the upcoming lifestyle.
Learn the cruciality of being close to the family
Many people who were cut off their family. People who were at their jobs, in colleges or at a vacation. People realised the importance of their family. How easy their life was when they had someone to take care of themselves. Lockdown made people aware of how important a role is of a homemaker. I hope people will respect us more and not take us for granted.
Maintaining a better health
As no junk food is available people will have to eat only home cook food. The food prepared at restaurants and cafes may taste delicious but home made food is more nutritious and is completely safe to eat. Homemade food boost immunity that also help in fight with Covid-19.
Homemakers will get some relief after the daily routine comes back into action. So we will get back the peace we had when they were alone at home, watching their favourite shows.
