Chris’s Answer

Jesse, all of our lives have changed in so many ways. I work in a job as a territory manager for a wireless carrier and my normal routine consisted of interacting with different people all day every day. Since the coronavirus I have been working from home for almost 6 weeks. I am generally an outgoing person who loves a good conversation and loves to impart my knowledge on others, either for personal or business. Being stuck at home with limited human contact, I have a wife and 3 kids, is very stressful. I have learned how to be a better parent and spouse, and I am able to but in a lot of volunteer time with my company.
I have also decided that I was not going to let this pandemic change who I was. I have become better at connecting with friend and am now less self centered. I decided that I was going to tackle a life long dream of playing an instrument and ordered a guitar and have been taking lessons on line for about 2 week. It gives me a chance at self reflections and some time alone in a busy house. I have also doing some small self meditation to help me clear my mind.
National incidents such as a pandemic, school shooting, hurricanes, tornadoes always makes me see the good in people and not matter how bad things are you will always find good people around doing the right thing.
This has changed us all in so many ways. When you wonder about it, take to friend and neighbors, find the good in people and continue to connect with them. If someone is negative keep them at a distance, good always wins.

Jesse, there have been so many changes for everyone. Before the pandemic I was an ER volunteer, working part time and planning to attend school. Now I am mostly home and my classes will be online. Although with difficult times there is strength that comes as well; I began a virtual food fund drive, helped check in with my neighbor/landlord for grocery shopping, and will even begin volunteering remotely to be a tutor for high school students in NYC. I've definitely been reading more, but have also kept active with my community and spreading news for others to stay home and keep safe. I hope that once we are out of this pandemic I can look back and see that I've done some helpful things while keeping mature and healthy to the best of my abilities. That being said, do what you love and take care of yourself and if you can find activities to help during the pandemic while staying safe and healthy do try to take part. Hopefully things will get better with time!

Stay safe and healthy!
Best of luck!

This is a different time for sure. While being quarantined, I still try and maintain some sort of schedule and be productive with my time. Now is the time to take advantage of all the things I have shared in the past that "I never had time to do" because being over-scheduled. I am definitely getting out of the house and enjoying walking, running, biking more. I have discovered parts of my neighborhood that I never know existed. I have also met new neighbors. I am definitely doing a lot more cooking which I enjoy, and spending quality time with my kids. I am also virtually volunteering which is this right now! I enjoy helping others and giving advice, recommendations, etc. It takes a village and we all need to work together to help, support and lift one another up. These are tough times but also ones we can overcome together.

Post quarantine, my hope is that this time off at home, will help me better define where and how I want to spend my time in the future. I have a mental vision board that I want to put on paper or a digital slide to stay true to that focus.

Please be safe, active and healthy (mentally and physically)!

I have been very fortunate as i have been able to conduct my normal job function working from home daily. It has definitely been different as I am used to interacting with people in person on a daily basis with my current job, but I have been utilizing online video meetings to continue to interact with my peers.

The weather is has been beautiful the past few days, so I try to take a break every afternoon and just go outside and enjoy the sunshine.

After I get finished working each day, I try to read a book to relax or find a new show to binge watch.

Stay safe!

Riley’s Answer

I don't think there is a person on this planet whos lifestyle has not been changed by the coronavirus. As for me, I feel like the pace of life has just really slowed down. Before, I had to wake up around 5 AM every day and go to classes or work, and I was not home until around 6 PM. Now, I wake up around 9 AM and drink coffee and relax until starting my workday at 11 AM. I do play more video games now that I have so much more free time, but I do try to do other things to improve myself, like working out and cooking new recipes. I think during quarantine the most important thing is to do what makes you happy because really all we need to do right now is get through this.

Aicha’s Answer

Hi Jesse!

I would say in terms of my classes being moved online that surprisingly has not affected me as much as you think it would. Most of my classes were already hybrid so it was not that big of a transition. The thing that I miss is just being able to go out with my friends to different places with no worries. I think this virus has affected me because even when it does decide to clear up how can I know for sure that it is gone? I think it may be something that I will be a little paranoid over.

My day mainly consists of doing my homework/ projects, exercising, taking care of my plant, face-timing friends, listening to music, and working on a puzzle that i got.

After this quarantine is over I want to get back into taking more acting classes and learn more about tactical training for film. I am an actress so I want to be able to just audition for stuff in order to work on my craft.

Interestingly, my work life has not changed much in that I go into my office daily and see patients. What has changed is that there are no visitors in the waiting room, and there are no family members wandering back to use the restrooms. Actually, this pandemic has given me the chance to realize how important a quiet, calm office for my patients. I am planning to continue to observe this more private environment.

So I think everyone's life has been significantly impacted due to the coronavirus and at this time I think it's important that you're doing everything you can to support those around you while staying healthy both physically and mentally. In my case I'm living with parents over the age of 60 so the most important thing is to be extremely cautious with trying not to leave the house and if I absolutely have to (grocery store) I make sure I carry alcohol, gloves, and masks and then I have a thorough cleaning routine when I come back home because we can't take any risks.
On a personal level I go for a run or a bike ride around my neighborhood at least every other day, being in contact with nature and remaining active keeps me positive and energized amidst these challenging uncertain times.
From a professional standpoint, I am a sales Account Executive and need to use every minute I have to learn about the solutions I sell which are constantly changing and improving, read about my customers and develop informative thoughts on what could support their business, and build relationships with my team internally even if its through webcam. In order to accomplish all of this, I create "To do lists" every day and prioritize accordingly.
The most important thing is that although I'm working from home, I have a routine for everything and take advantage of the "extra minutes" that I'm saving on a drive to work to learn new things or build new relationships that I normally wouldn't be able to. I enjoy staying productive and want to invest all this time at home wisely.
I hope this helps and I hope that most importantly you're taking care of your mind and body!

Krasti’s Answer

While I am no longer able to return to office since quarantine, I am lucky enough to still be able to continue to work at home. As a result, my pace of life has slowed down as I am no longer rushing to get ready to drive into the office. I have more time to myself which I am very grateful for. I've used the time to pick up hobbies that I normally would not do when I was busy. Even just cooking myself breakfast is nice, whereas before, I would just skip the meal altogether.

I've also had to find different ways to exercise since I was not able to go to the gym, so I've been playing tennis, riding a bike, walking around the neighborhood, etc. Doing activities like this may seem like small changes but they actually made me feel a lot more fulfilled rather than going to the gym just to check it off the list. I've definitely had more time to self reflect during this time and you start to appreciate nature and your health more.

Since I've been reading more books and learning a language during the quarantine, I am hoping to come out of the quarantine more educated and happy because I've learned new skills. Take advantage of your free time. :)

Adele’s Answer

Hi, I am a nurse who retired after40 years in hospital nursing and have been working as a school nurse sub and for a state based wellness program both of which are cancelled at present. So my days have seen a big change like everyone. I try to start each day thankful by prayers, running 5 miles and then a 3 mile run with my nephew who has been training and improving his times. While we run we talk about the good things that have come from this, more family times, seeing more people walking, less fast food available, children and parents reconnecting and what we can do to help. We always take an afternoon walk to break up the day. We have also started a food drive in the neighborhood and donate to local food pantry, we check on the older neighbors, we have put out signs with encouraging messages and we try to say hello to everyone we see at a social distance, donating snacks to the staff at the hospital where I worked and he sends cards. We also have a routine of texting friends just to say hello and how are you. It has been a big change but we can learn that all the material things we thought were important are not and we look forward to returning to work. As much as this is hard I hope I become a stronger person and well as our country. Take care

Meera’s Answer

Hello. I think the quarantine has helped me and my family slow down and take it day by day. Typically we are up and running out the door for school, work, after-school activities and before you know it the day is done and its bed time. Now we have more time to spend with each other - taking long walks, playing basketball, gardening, reading and my daughter learned how to ride a bike in a week, which would have never happened if we didn't have our evenings free. We are cooking at home more and getting our daughter involved. We are giving ourselves the time to "just be". Although my daughter misses the interactions with her friends, this has given her the time to figure out how to entertain herself either through reading/music/or playing in our backyard. Its hard for everyone but in the end I do think this has been a good "reset" for us.

Well, for me, the face-to-face interactions and meetings with colleagues and others are absent because of the confinement. We are continuing most of the work via conference calls, virtual meetings, email discussions, and many other forms of real/non-real-time wired/wireless communications. Many of the Laboratory activities, testing, and demonstrations need to be postponed. Some of the testing and evaluations are continuing using advanced generation wireless access devices and gears.

Yes, the commuting times have been reduced to zero, and no more waiting in cafeteria lines for lunch and snacks. May be there is more time available for self care now!

If one enjoys cooking, writing, yoga, reorganizing books and other material inside a room, now there is more available time for these relaxing activities.

Since this has been going on for more than a few weeks, this is becoming sort of normal now to many of us.

We are looking forward to opening of the Labs and work places. Until then, everyone please stay active, safe and healthy.
