What will our memories of lockdown be?

Future memories of the pandemic

The current period will undoubtedly leave us with more than just one memory. However, not all of them will be as important as the fact that we have all lost our sense of differentiating the days of the week, as nothing is happening anymore, or the fact of having a close person infected or even dead because of the virus. So we would better wish no memories at all instead of any bad memories to begin with.

The new virus and its consequences to be remembered

Humans worldwide are trying to handle, as much as possible, the current pandemic.

When all is gone, we are going to look back and mostly remember how important we found technology to be: it enabled us to communicate and keep updated with all that was happening around us.

Oral History

Most of history is derived from government documents, transcripts, newspaper articles, and recently, from digital data. Oral history, a tradition from the old, pre-written cultures are often crucial in providing a holistic, rich, and complete picture of a historical event.

Oral histories (and even personal journals) sometimes answer questions that aren’t found in the official texts, about the inner motivations and discarded facts that may be important.

Bias In History

30 years from now, oral history collected through TV interviews and online resources will be incredibly valuable, but can also carry certain biases. Historians have to ensure that the interpretations are accurate and untainted.

Ineffective methods

Travel bans are proving to be too late. Since the virus can incubate for 14 days, carriers can spread it before they even know they have it.
Protective gear such as masks only works if they are used correctly.
It doesn't help to cover our hands if those hands are still touching infected surfaces before touching our eyes, nose, or mouth.

Preventing “community spread”

In 1918, health officials from Philadelphia ignored calls for social distancing and allowed a World War I victory parade to proceed. Within three days, people were sick. Within six weeks, 12,000 were dead.

The 1918 influenza had a fatality rate of about 2,5 percent, compared to the 3,4 percent of the new virus. The best way to prevent the virus from spreading is to keep people apart.

Phases of motivation

People cycle through periods of motivation, especially in the New Year. It’s best to harness these bursts of 'can-do energy' whenever they appear.

The action phase

The New Year's resolution or 'action phase' is when you're highly motivated for change. Use it to set things in motion and automate as much as you can. 

  • Put your bills on autopay
  • Start using a savings app
  • Cut out any subscriptions you don't really need.

The maintenance phase

If you don't have a plan when the New Year's glow has worn off in a few months, you will stop doing whatever you promised to do. 

To force yourself to stick to a budget:

  • Write down everything you spend.
  • Add it up at the end of every week.
  • Submit a report to help keep you accountable.
