Coronavirus: How To Live As Normal As Possible

This virus got us all. We also have to adjust to whatever crosses our path but also try to live as normal as we have to and as we always do.

  3. Fun moments with your family

Grocery shopping as normal

In the last few weeks, people are still hunting on items at the grocery store. They are still doing that after three weeks when the first case noticed. Everybody got panicked. How weird is that as we — Dutch people — are always that sober in everything we do.

People think nothing will be left for them as the virus spread worldwide too fast. But we have been ensured that we can grocery shopping as normal as possible. Just do your groceries as you do normally.

First of all, you don’t need all those (luxury) items at this time. In crisis time we all just need simple and basic things.

Working from home

As we have orders to stay at home, we also have to work from home as much as possible we can do.

Do what you normally do in your schedule

Keep your schedule as normal as possible. That is very important to keep your head up and it is important for your children too! They need structure.

Fun moments with your family

Also, don’t forget to do fun things with your children when you have the time because this time is right for bonding more with your family members. It is important for them to feel loved. Especially in these kinds of times. When you have a hard time, this could be when you forget to do fun things with your children. And, of course, with your spouse.


Always check the (latest) facts with your country.
