Many people compare aspects of their situation of being more isolated and working from home with days every day, full with Zoom meetings, with the movie “Groundhog Day” where every new day is indistinguishable from the former and a slow feeling of despair is taking over, as being trapped in a time loop. However, it might be useful to remind ourselves of the latter half of the film where the main character uses this involuntary situation as an opportunity to learn new skills (speaking French, playing the piano) and help others. A lot of people are indeed taking this opportunity to pick up new cooking or gardening skills, to start that long-awaiting home improvement project, or discovering the beauty of walking in their immediate neighbourhood. To quote Vaile Wright, director of clinical research and quality at the American Psychological Association: “It is looking at it as a bit of a challenge but also an opportunity to savour this time and put it toward something that you always wanted to do.”
