A survey of 2,000 people from the U.S. over the age of 21, asked about the positives changes to come from the coronavirus pandemic. It was commissioned by Coravin and conducted by OnePoll. One big thing that came from this time was that people checked their priorities. Just over half, 55 percent, of respondents were even a bit embarrassed by some of the things they valued pre-quarantine.
70 percent found that the time gave them a chance to learn more about themselves. The reason they were able to do that is that respondents felt they gained the time and flexibility to delve into new hobbies and discover new passions. 35 percent said they want to continue those hobbies once quarantine is over.
- 27 percent of respondents found that they enjoyed this new flexibility and they are hoping to achieve a better work/life balance coming out of quarantine.
- 46 percent want to spend more quality time with friends and family.
- 38 percent plan to create more meaningful relationships with those around them.
A full Two-Thirds of respondents also felt this time has helped them become better people.
There are always positives to be found in a situation if you give yourself room to breathe and pray on it. But that doesn’t make it a good situation; the pandemic continues in the United States, with over 6 million total Coronavirus cases, and over 180,000 deaths.
