For some reason, we never gave a lot of things too much thought before. For most of us, these things seemed like a very ordinary thing to do. Nothing special. Nothing spectacular.
However, because of the lockdowns caused by the global health crisis, we were suddenly taken back into the confines of our home catching us all by surprise.
We have listed below some of the seemingly mundane things men are now looking forward to doing once the lockdown has been lifted and the virus contained.
10 Things Most Men Look Forward to Once the Virus Has Been Contained
1. Eat out.
After weeks of eating home-cooked meals, even the ones doing all the cooking at home can’t wait to eat out and enjoy food served in restaurants and diners.
2. Enjoy a night out with loved ones.
Play ball. Watch a movie. Enjoy a few drinks with a Hallertau Blanc-flavored profile. Talk over a few cups of overpriced coffee in venti cups. Whatever activity it may be, men are raring to go out and have a good time with their loved ones.
3. See family and friends.
One of the things we really were deprived of was human contact. Once the virus has been contained and things start going back to the way they were, men are going to visit family and friends to reconnect and have genuine in-person conversations again.
4. Go driving aimlessly around the city.
For quite some time now the streets have been empty and devoid of transportation. With all the cars, trucks, and bikes parked in garages, a lot of men can’t wait to take their babies out for a spin and just drive aimlessly through the city streets.
5. Take long walks around the neighborhood without minding the time.
The safety protocols put in place by the government would make it illegal if you step out of your home unnecessarily and for long periods.Once the quarantines and isolations are done, numerous guys just want to take walks around their neighborhoods and city blocks to enjoy the fresh air and being outdoors once again without having to fear the authorities.
6. Run in the park.
When the gyms closed down, men were forced to come up with home workout routines to stay in shape. While working out at home is a great way to pass the time and stay healthy and fit, nothing beats enjoying a carefree outdoor run.
7. Take a road trip.
Even now, several men are already planning the trip of their lives after this pandemic has subsided. While there is no certainty about air travel in the coming months, an out-of-town road trip is a great substitute for it.
8. Get a much-needed professionally-done haircut.
Being holed up at home is one thing. Spending months with messy hair is another. Post-lockdown, expect to see countless men sporting mullets, thick locks, and unkempt hair making their way to the nearest barbershop for a long-overdue haircut.
9. Dress up really nicely.
After all this time being quarantined and isolated at home, men would like to feel like human beings once again and put some clothes on their backs and shoes on their feet. A lot of men are looking forward to the day when they can put on killer clothes and get their swagger on.
10. Appreciate the little things in life.
We have all been deprived of the things we usually take for granted for a few months. It’s time we learn to look at things from an entirely different point of view and start appreciating not just the big things but even the small things as well.
To quote Forrest Gump, ”Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” Truer words have never been spoken. We never know what the future has in store for us so let’s all learn to live a fuller life and appreciate even the smallest and simplest of things.
