About this video

Are we becoming a better society? My own experience with Covid made me ponder this deeply.

For the longest time, I was fortunate to avoid Covid during the pandemic, but when it finally caught up with me at the end, it was an eye-opening experience.

My head felt heavy, my throat was sore, and fatigue overwhelmed me. I tried every natural remedy in the book – steaming, gargling, turmeric and ginger shots – but nothing seemed to work. Eventually, I took the test and, sadly, it came back positive. I quarantined myself and took the time to rest for three full days.

This period of forced pause gave me an opportunity to re-evaluate my life and what truly matters. It made me realize how lucky I am to have the support of family and friends. The biggest awakening was when I decided to take a break from work for three days and focus on nurturing my body and well-being.

In those moments of rest and reflection, I learned to appreciate the value of self-care and the importance of balance in our lives. It took me five days to recover completely, but the lessons I gained during that time will stay with me forever.

Not everyone has been fortunate. Covid disrupted lives across the world, and the loss of near and dear ones is unfathomable. The pandemic was the biggest wake-up call of our lives.

Let's embrace this call to action and strive to become a better society, one that values health, empathy, and togetherness. As we move forward, let's cherish the small moments, take care of ourselves with Wholistic Wellbeing, and remember the lessons this pandemic taught us.
