With all that’s been happening with COVID-19, many people are wondering whether they should fundamentally change their lifestyle and do something completely different. After a year in solitude, the idea of just picking up where things left off in March 2020 seems stupid. 

But picking a brand new lifestyle to pursue isn’t for the faint hearted. It takes guts and also a determination to succeed. People do manage it, but it’s never easy. 

Before we get started, though, why are so many people wanting to switch up their lives? Well, partly, it has to do with solitude itself. 




Whenever anyone in the past wanted to experience a kind of spiritual awakening, they would always wander off into the woods for a few months to be by themselves. It wasn’t that they wanted to get away from anyone. It’s just that they understood that by being alone, they could better differentiate themselves from the rest of the world around them.

Starting last year, the government pretty much mandated forest retreats for the whole population, paying people to stay at home for pretty much the first time in history. But, at the same time, they inadvertently gave people the excuse of totally changing their lives. It wouldn’t be surprising if companies go on a hiring spree as things open back up again, thanks to all the people who don’t want to return to the office. 

So what radical lifestyle changes are people making? 

It’s Creating A New Breed Of Bikers

If you want to dust off your old motorcycle jacket and go out riding, now is the time to do it. These days, just about the only available activity is sitting on your motorcycle and rampaging through the countryside. And this fact isn’t lost on the biking community. So many groups and solo enthusiasts are touring the countryside, seeking out beauty spots, and using their bikes as an expression of their freedom. It’s what they need in lockdown.

It’s Making Some Of Us Healthier

Granted, most people’s health declined during the lockdown. But some took it as an opportunity to refocus on their bodies and dedicate more time to them. 

Many people today are so busy that they simply don’t have time to look after their health. They rush from one job to the next, never really investing in their wellbeing in any substantial way. But, again, now people have more time on their hands, that’s all changing, and we’re seeing some segments really change their habits. 

Please note, though, that overall, health isn’t improving. It’s getting worse. 

We’re Becoming More Spiritual

You wouldn’t think it, but the lockdown is also making a lot of people more spiritual. That’s because, as we discussed, it’s giving people more time to themselves, allowing them to explore things that they wouldn’t ordinarily have explored. 

It’s Making Us All Hikers

Lastly, the pandemic is turning us into a nation of hikers. Today, there isn’t a footpath or a bridleway in the land that isn’t thronging with keen walkers, looking to blow off steam and eliminate cabin fever.
