5 Things to Remember If We Go on Lockdown Again

The possibility of a lockdown is real. With more than 20,000 new cases in just 3 days, the government will be forced to lockdown if this rising number does not drop significantly. 

So, is it time to panic and hoard once more?


Absolutely not. If there's one thing that we should have learned from last year is that there is no need to go panicking and hoarding. Instead, these are what we need to remember. 

1. Buy enough groceries for two weeks if you have space to store it. This lessens the need to go out weekly which also lessens the risk of being infected. Do not hoard and buy all the canned goods and what not because lockdown or not, supermarkets and public markets will remain open because it's part of the essentials. 

2. Buy first aid emergency medicines for common ailments such as cough, cold, flu, fever, small wounds, and the like. You should have these at home regardless of the current situation. 

3. Double-dose your vitamin intake if possible. Sleep at least 6 hours a day. Exercise. Drink a lot of water. Do what you can to take care of your body because it's one of the biggest tools you have to avoid getting infected. 

4. Sterilize, wash your hands, and use alcohol. When handling things coming from the outside, make sure to sterilize them first. Here are some of the items I have in my household that I use to sterilize everything from shoes to bags to phones. 

Bag / Package Sterilizer for Php2,198

Phone Sterilizer  for only Php429 

Mask / Face Shield Sterilizer for Php2,599

5. Take care of your mental health. Do something to relax. Spend time with family. Be productive. Choose to do something that you will be proud of. No matter what, stressing yourself won't help at all so choose to take care of your mental well-being.  

Stay at home unless you absolutely need to go out. If it can be delivered online, choose to have it delivered and wear a mask and face shield when receiving packages. Don't allow visitors for the time being. Don't visit someone else too. 

Now is not the time for milestone parties or events. It's better to miss a milestone and then make up for it in the future than attend a milestone and have it be your last. 

Times may be crazy again and it feels like we are back to square one but what we all need to remember is, we survived the first wave. We can and will survive once more.
