A flash back to how we were in the first days of quarantine, we recall what we worried about, feared, and hoped. The question now is: what have we learned throughout this pandemic? Are we still the same?and how has COVID-19 changed our perspectives in life?
“INDEX Media”conducted a survey for its audience on what they learned in the last few months, and what are the new skills that they gained during this pandemic.42% of the surveyed people said they’ve learned cooking, while 12% were more engaged in sport activities and did Yoga. 10% said that they spent their time doing nothing, but sleeping.While 8% of respondents said they badly needed a haircut during quarantine so they ended up learning how to do it. Moreover, 7% of the respondents said they improved their search skills and how to get advanced tips with online lessons and activities, while 6% procrastinating on their daily tasks and they preferred to do nothing,and for others, the isolation led them to overthink everything.
Knitting became a trend at quarantine as 4% of the surveyed people said they learned the basics of knitting. 4% confirmed learning time management and unique ways to conquer their day, and for others, quarantine taught them to be patient and maintain their physical and emotional well-being.
The results above, show that the pandemic apparently changed people’s habits, interests and priorities and enabled them to learn new skills,which creates a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to target the new needs with new initiatives and business ideas, be it DIY products or small to medium startups.
