In this year of crisis, world saw and learned a lot. The year full of upheavals changed many things and gave us some life long lessons. Here are 20 lessons which 2020 taught us.
Health is wealth
Corona taught people the importance of a healthy body. It taught us not just physically but mental fitness too should be priority of the people. Those who considered exercise or yoga as a burden also made fitness a routine.
Savings are essential
The difficult economic phase once again conveyed the importance of saving to the people. Those who were already in the habit of saving, faced much less problems in this period. Those who did not have this habit definitely got a lesson.
Sharing is caring
The number of donations increased during the pandemic. The billionaires openly funded the research and treatment. This time of crisis was also the best period of mutual cooperation.
Like food like body and mind
Probably for the first time in the Corona, people paid so much attention to their food and drink habits. Immunity became a priority rather than taste in food. People preferred to eat fresh and healthy food at home.
There is no age to learn
Everyone definitely learned something this year. Children learned to study online, then teachers learned to teach online. Many people made digital payments for the first time.
Crisis also brings opportunities
Corona created a crisis for many industries, creating new opportunities for many other industries. Cinema halls closed, but OTT platforms were flooded. If the restaurants closed, then the food delivery apps started booming.
Heaven is at home
Millions of people returned to their homes in times of crisis. Some came back due fear of virus, some due to the unemployment. This displacement created a new debate as to why employment opportunities do not arise near home.
Family time is must
Perhaps the first time people spent so much time with their families during the lockdown. When people got a break from the aggressive race of earnings, it was found that time spent with family is the most precious.
Every problem has a solution
There was a problem for offices and playgrounds during the lockdown. Time taught that every crisis can be solved. Offices shifted to homes. The games also went online and so many other alternatives appeared during this time.
Superheroes do exist
In this time of crisis, people saw real superheroes. Be it doctors or health workers or policemen. The way these frontline people worked tirelessly was more than any superhero.
Follow along and get the solution soon
Earlier, the vaccine of any disease was not made so soon. The reason was – all the countries and institutes involved in research shared the information. Walking in crisis soon found a solution.
Religion is within
The doors of the religious places were closed in the lockdown, but people understood that God resides in the mind. People worshiped god at home during this time.
Beware of fake information
Whether Corona figures or the China border dispute, this year taught us that correct information is very important. We were troubled all year by viral lies on social media.
Every job is important
Previously, sweepers used to come and go in the neighbourhoods, no one knew them. Whereas now Corona explained the importance of cleaning, people admired these workers so much during this pandemic.
Many a little makes mickle
The economy collapsed in lockdown. GDP growth turned negative. But, once the business resumed, small steps taken accelerated the economic recovery. These small moves are helping in reviving the economy again.
Hygiene must be kept
In childhood, we learned that God lives in cleanliness. Corona showed us that hygiene is important for us. Cleanliness became our need in this difficult time and now it has become a habit.
Abstinence is the greatest strength
Corona increased people’s restraint and self discipline. Whether it is the restraint of social distancing or the mask. This became the biggest strength of the people in fighting the pandemic. The one who followed this restrain won.
Crisis does not discriminate
Coronavirus catapulted many heads of state from Britain to Prince Charles. Many big names contracted the virus during this period. The pandemic erased the distinction between rich and poor.
Mental strength can do magic

Any disease beats the mind before its body. Among those who defeated the corona, remained mentally strong. Mental strength made us fight with the repercussions of this pandemic.
Life is like a river; unstoppable
This is the biggest lesson of this time. Many difficulties come in life, but they go with course of time. Though everything is not going well, but life goes on. The sun of hope definitely rises after the dark night.
