Positive lifestyle changes since Covid-19

Everyone’s lives are slowly going back to some normality. Mine included, I’ve been back at work, done more shopping and been to more places, but what does this mean for our lifestyle?

During the lockdown, many people have found better ways to enjoy and use their time. we’ve been exercising from home, taking long walks, enjoying family time, decorating, binge-watching Netflix and so much more. For some this may have been a silver lining, I think so too.

Here are some lifestyle changes I’ve experienced since and during the Covid-19 crisis. My hope is to inspire you to think about the positive changes in your life since lockdown and what it will mean in the future.

I’m exercising from home
There’s no reason you have to say goodbye to fitness while gyms are closed. At the beginning of lockdown I bought some resistance bands, they’ve been a god send! I thought i just had to do cardio to tone up but with the weight resistance bands I’ve toned up my legs and arms.

I’ve also discovered many PT’s (Personal Trainers) putting videos on social media of body workouts that you can easily do without weights. My time in the evenings is now spent exercising, I’m now motivated and getting endorphins flowing round my body.


My steps a day have tripled
Working a desk job, means I’m busy during the day, but on the weekends I’m getting out an about in my local area. I’m doing three times the amount of steps I used to, it’s brilliant!

The fresh air keeps me from feeling too cooped up at home, plus getting out in nature helps me to be happier and more positive! The pictures below are from walks I’ve been on – The Dream, Sutton Manor – Beeston Castle, Cheshire – Sherdley Park, St Helens.


Healthier Eating

The supermarkets are manic, but I love fruit and I’ve been eating more of it while I’ve been at home. By being at home it means there is more time to cook proper meals with proper food.

Strawberries, Blueberries and Pineapple are my favourites, and when I’ve been going shopping these are top of my list! Healthy eating is the way forward!



My friends and family are closer than ever

Everyone’s social life has taken a massive hit, but this doesn’t mean you can’t stay in touch with people. In the last month I have been seeing friends on socially distanced walks around the park. It’s been great, although we had been facetiming each other there’s nothing better than seeing them face to face.

During lockdown, my family and I have been doing weekly Saturday and Sunday dress up dinners. It’s been so fun and has definitely livened up the monotonous weekends where we don’t do a lot!

My wardrobe is finally getting organized
It’s hard to find the time to sort through your wardrobe, especially when working. But when we had a rainy day I did just that. I even sorted out lots of stuff in my room and had about 15 bags of rubbish for the tip. I even spent three hours queuing to get into the tip haha!

Lockdown was the perfect opportunity to clean out old items and start fresh with a more capsule wardrobe.



Having extra free time has meant that I’ve also been able to spend a bit more time on my blog. Before, I would procrastinate by going out shopping and sniffing all the fancy soaps in Lush or be I’d stuffing my face at Wagamamas!

I’ve been able to work on posts in the evenings as well as being able to spend my lunchtimes commenting and reading on other blogs too. In turn, my blog has grown massively and I couldn’t be happier.


So what lifestyle changes have come about since the drama of Covid-19?

Life is going to be very different from now on, but this doesn’t mean that what you’ve accomplished during lockdown has to disappear! We’re all bound to have a new appreciation for things now, EMBRACE IT!

  1. I love this post, I think we can all say that lockdown made us question our lives and how we can change certain ways. My changes have been more about how I look at things more positively and it made me realise the important things!

  2. I agree with you in the home fitness. I have been working out from home for years and would never go to a gym. You don’t need a lot of expensive equipment and there are a ton of online options for free (or very low cost).

  3. Aww glad this has been so productive for you! This process has been incredible for my bog! But I’m sort of weirdly on my own in London and can’t wait to see my family again!

  4. It’s been a strangely positive time, despite the darkness of it all. I’ve done tons of exercise, blogging, ate better and am now decorating the house. It’s really made me think about the future and slowing down, workwise.

  6. I definitely think lockdown has brought a lot of positive changes to my life too. For me I’ve really started to think about what I spend money on. Not being able to shop as easily has made me realise that I don’t need half the stuff I used to spend money on. I’m loving having so much more money in the bank. I’m going to keep this mindset in post-lockdown world too.

  7. Those are great! I have blogged more consistently, but I don’t do so well exercising at home. There seem to be so many different things to choose from I just haven’t found one to click yet. I’m glad you’re making better choices for yourself!

  8. Quarantine has definitely given me more free time to do everything I’ve been putting off, including starting my blog. It was really unexpected, but I think it was also some time we all needed to realize what’s really important. Love your post💕

  10. There have been some silver linings to lockdown for sure! I’m more of an introvert anyways and don’t really mind it haha, just wish I could see my family. I love having more time for blogging, exercise, and self care when I’m not having to commute to the office!

  11. I love how you talk about the positive side of Covid-19, and there will be so many people that will have gained positive habits due to this lockdown!! I am the same as you in that my friends and family are closer than ever, and I now appreciate a lot more how valuable there are!

    Feel free to read some of my blog posts as well 🙂

  12. It is lovely to be able to return to oneself and engage in pursuits that sometimes do not get the time, space and attention to invest within when we are immersed in the race of life. It is great too, to be so optimistic and expansion oriented with your mindset. Wonderful post, inspires huge! Thanks2U🤘🏽
