About a year ago, most of us were probably in a difficult financial condition with the lockdowns in effect, reduced income, and increased economic uncertainty. The conditions were frightening, and the pandemic has affected many negatively.
Many turned to online activities as the free time available had been increased. Some invested in crypto, others tried to profit from online activities, and many of us tried both.
I have had the advantage of trading and researching the crypto world since 2017, but also have to admit that I never expected adoption would reach such a massive scale so early.
I had sold most of my portfolio before the top and I didn’t believe that some coins (like Doge) which I was holding for years could reach this high.
Crypto helped us, but we may also feel trapped when we commit most of our time to it. The profit from trading is important, and it requires dedicating more hours to research. Many of us also became crypto writers, and this takes almost all the rest of our free time.
There are priorities we forget and we felt contempt to change for a long time, but it is better than late to change than never.
First, we have to take care of our health and body. Many have abandoned or reduced exercise a lot. It is difficult to lose the extra pounds gained. It needs dedication and exercise. Exercise requires a program, and certain hours, almost every day. Although it is a top priority and maybe hitting the gyms that now re-open would be a great idea.
Second comes our social skills. I see this on the streets and watch how people behave. Sometimes, I also catch myself overreacting. It doesn’t need to be like that. We should return to normal and the sooner we realize we need outdoor activities, the better we will deal with the abnormal changes that they forced us to live with.
We shouldn’t overlook our body or social life. We socialize online but have less time and fewer relationships. Maybe we are living together with a family, but spending all day with the same people will eventually become boring.
There are also reports of increased abuse inside families and increased psychological problems. One day at the beach, one day at the park, some other recreational activities can help, but it is required for everyone inside the family to take part willingly. It is often better to allow everyone some room and not make the life of other family members difficult.
Teenage kids will probably want time away from the family and hang out with friends. Nobody can force anyone to take part in family activities. It should always be voluntary, otherwise it will not help.
I am currently on a visit to my mother’s home (in an island location) and relax while sunbathing daily and eating homemade food. I will be back home by the end of the month and have planned radical changes in my lifestyle.
The pandemic made us lose so much time for our personal growth and while the lockdowns are now relaxing, we are still trapped in a terrible mindset.
We all suffered and agreed to lifestyle changes that were contradicting healthy living conditions. I think that we have time to revert these changes and become living life again, without restrictions.
I am healthy, but I have gained weight that seems to be too hard to lose after stopping some activities because of the lockdowns. I know, maybe it was an excuse, but frankly, I was enjoying the three or four months of intensively attending the gym each year.
My plan begins a week from now, when I will be back home, and start visiting the gym again. In case the government decides new lockdowns, I will still dedicate three hours daily to exercise and fitness.
Congratulations to everyone that still kept being fit when having to deal with everything. We shouldn’t have allowed to grow fat and lose our fitness, and from now on it will be a top priority.
We need to have some fun, and the pandemic also changed that. We will need to find like-minded people and go on vacations together. If we don’t find anyone, we can always go alone.
Most of the countries are in lockdowns, but I believe they will eventually start re-opening. I don’t know a lot about vaccine passports, and trust me I have many reservations about the vaccine, but I am not an expert on medicine to have an opinion on this subject. I have studied business administration and economics and can offer an educated opinion in these fields.

Focus on our priorities and the rest will come. Don’t allow yourself to relax too much and lose your focus. A healthy body and a healthy mind is the way to go. You don’t want to become a fitness monster either, just focus on having an athletic body. You don’t need to stop eating, just focus on eating healthy. Food is very important, and junk food like pizzas and McDonalds are fattening and unhealthy.
Workers that perform manual labor will already have a kind of fit body, but even they will need to have some exercise. Sports games like football or basketball are great as exercise too and will keep you fit. I suggest the gym though, it will help make a perfect body without the exhaustion of team sports.
There is profit in crypto, but there will also be profit tomorrow. Program your life and dedicate a few hours daily to exercise your body. Focus on connecting with some people that deserve your company and try to improve yourself instead of dragging others into your situation. You want to escape an unhealthy and secluded lifestyle and not find excuses.
Enough with excuses. It is time to act and it will take three to four months to reach a fitness level you will be proud of!
It is hard, but you know what? It is easier than writing, and we can still have both.
