COVID-19 and the pandemic have affected many of us in unprecedented and unforeseen ways. Many pandemic lessons have been learned. The pandemic lockdown has caused people to be more isolated. It has created increases in mental health problems like anxiety and depression. It has also forced many to improvise on how to do work and family during this time.

The Lesson of Resiliency
One of the things that we can learn from the pandemic is that people are resilient. We have the ability to overcome challenging and unexpected situations. When we find ourselves in need of help, we can find a therapist for help. Additionally, there are other resources to support our resiliency. Most notable are the online support opportunities like Talkspace or other online helpline or services. The important thing to remember is that you are resilient and there are resources if you need help.
The Lesson of Creativity
Another important pandemic lesson is the lesson of innovation. The pandemic has taught us we need to be creative in finding solutions to problems. For example, restaurants have created outside eating areas during the quarantine. Churches have also creatively adapted. Many churches are doing outdoor worship services, services in cars, and indoor services without music and social distanced. In short, many in many industries have had to employ creativity to carry out their work.
The Lesson of Productivity
Closely related to creativity is the pandemic lesson of productivity. Many people have had their jobs and livelihoods affected by the pandemic.
