The COVID-19 pandemic has turned life upside down for everyone. Many of the changes to daily life can be anxiety-inducing, but they’re not all terrible.

Skies are clearer and traffic is much lighter. 

What have you noticed about this time that you hope will last beyond the pandemic? Maybe you’re spending more time with family or you’ve started a new hobby you want to keep. What things, big or small, do you want to hold onto?
