Work from home: How does this impact the workforce amid COVID-19


The past six to seven months have been quite stressful due to the on-going Coronavirus pandemic. Many lives were lost, many suffered a lot of pain, and many overcame this horrible disease. The whole world has suffered a lot, and entire economies have been shattered to bits. Due to this problem, many 9-5 jobs have been lost. As a result, many individuals started facing a very hard time earning their daily bread and butter. Now, people throughout the world are slowly trying to get their jobs back in order, but will it be the same, or will it wreak more havoc?

Will this situation last forever?

No one knows. That is the only safe assumption one can genuinely make during such times. This virus has undoubtedly caused us all a lot of stress. However, it’s our responsibility to ensure that the virus remains contained. Statisticians predict a second wave yet to come, and who knows how many more lives will be lost. The current numbers suggest that the situation is easing up, yet more and more deaths are still being reported daily. At this stage, it would be best to stay at home and stay safe.

Is work from home actually working?

There is no doubt that working from home has its perks, but for how long can people tolerate such conditions? It’s simply not an easy task to be sitting home all day working in front of a laptop. It’s a serious situation and has caused many people anxiety issues. Nevertheless, one can’t complain during these situations as there’s not much to do about it. The pandemic has restricted us from carrying out our daily activities. But this doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t stay active and happy. Therefore, here are a bunch of activities you should consider doing to stay active and happy if you’re still working from home.

 1. Cycling:

cycling is considered to be a great activity when it comes to working from home. Technically, you’ll be cycling outside, but you can still enjoy this activity by maintaining social distancing rules and regulations.

2. Meditate:

Meditating is an excellent way to relax your mind and body. Working from home is stressful enough; therefore, mediating after a stressful day is a great way to ease yourself.

3. Keep in touch with friends and family:

If you’re living abroad and away from your friends and family, you should try to talk to your relatives on a daily basis. It’s healthy to keep in touch and maintain these relationships during such conditions.

 Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Illegal Activities

COVID-19 has undoubtedly had an impact on world economies and jobs. However, during the last six months, people have also been getting themselves into trouble by engaging in illegal activities. That could likely be due to the fact that proper check and balance was not taken into account. After the tragic murder of recently deceased ‘George Floyd,’ many protestors throughout the United States committed a ton of felonies that caused severe damage. Apart from the mayhem caused during that time, the younger population was also influenced by such activities, which led them to commit several other felonies. Here are a few illegal activities society engaged in during this time.

1. Under-age drinking:

Under-age drinking has generally been a problem long before COVID-19 began. However, in the last couple of months, there has been a surge in the sales of alcohol due to the use of a scannable fake id by individuals. As they are hard to be identified by officials, there’s been a rise in usage. Many legal aged individuals are also using fake Ids to stock up extra alcohol in many countries.

2. Clubbing parties:

Going to clubbing parties is typically considered to be illegal under the age of 18. Amid this pandemic, many youngsters started using illegal means like fake IDs and other methods to gain access to these clubs.

3. Theft:

During the George Floyd movement, theft became quite common for some time. Many riots took place, which led to people stealing from stores and appliance shops. Such riots paved the way for many youngsters and, as a result, greatly influenced them as well.

Final Verdict

Conclusively speaking, it doesn’t seem as if the coronavirus pandemic is going to dry down any time soon. It’s an unpredictable situation; therefore, the only thing left is for us to be calm and patient until the current situation eases. Working amid these conditions is pretty hard, but still, it doesn’t give anyone the right to act illegally, especially in a way that might hurt someone.
