Making The Most Of A Global Pandemic

2020 has been a tough year for everyone. With the sudden onset of the pandemic and the following lockdowns, everyone has struggled on some or the other level because of the social distancing norms. The pandemic has caused a lot of mental, financial and medical damages.

Businesses have lost revenue and had to downsize in order to stay afloat, employees working from home had to face mental health challenges due to isolation and the frontline workers have had to work tirelessly to serve the ailing people.

But it won’t be completely wrong to say that this has been a once in a lifetime opportunity to finally think about what we are doing in our lives. Here’s how you can make the most out of this time and do something productive:


Sell stuff online

Do you have any clothes that you bought but never ended up wearing more than once? Do you still have your old gadgets lying around the house? You can sell these online for some quick money.

Thrifting is an emerging trend on Instagram where people sell their pre-owned clothes for a reasonable price. All you need to do is clean up your closet, click pictures of stuff you don’t use anymore and upload them on Instagram.

The best part is that you can even sell your old smartphones, laptops and other devices for a suitable amount. For instance if you enter the keywords sell iPhone XS Max on your search engine, you will come across various websites where you can sell it at your desired price.

Learn new skills

We all have always wanted some extra free time for learning a new skill or even just read about the latest technological developments. This is the best time to invest in yourself and upskill yourself.

There are a myriad of eLearning courses available to learn a relevant skill that can help you advance in your career. This is one of the best ways to utilize this time and improve your resume.

There are many digital learning platforms offering free access to their services and are a one-stop shop for everyone from teachers to students, from working professionals to business owners.

Start freelancing

If you are one of those who have lost their jobs in this phase, you can make the best of this time by starting to freelance in an industry that is of your interest.

Maybe you always had a thing for writing creative blogs but got into a law career. This is the best time to do something you love and make money from it. You can pursue your hobby and turn them into an online business.

Start researching about the best platform to market your work. Even if you have a job, it is an excellent way to diversify your income. Since the situation doesn’t seem to be improving for the next few months, this is a good time to venture into something on a freelance basis.


Even though the pandemic has tested everyone’s patience, there are multiple ways you can ensure this time gets spent productively.
