Why does the Quarantine period make us feel like we’re losing time?

How we can get direction and RESTART!

There’s no point in feeling terrible as you revisit the productivity meter of the past 4–5 months. For some of you quarantine must've increased the already piling workload and for a few others work was moderate or close to none. Most of us must’ve finally found some precious ‘me’ time, watching movies and just Netflix-ing - partially justifying the time spent as phenomenal learnings - while the others spent time playing video games or just games in general.

Few of us learnt new skills and gained knowledge through MOOCs courses and picked up creative skills like cooking, painting, making music and the likes. So for all of you who I presume are scared of the rate at which time seems to be ticking away, let me ask you one question.

If you did all that you wanted to do, what exactly are you afraid of?

Why is there a feeling of emptiness? Why do we feel like we’re drifting in time? What are we losing sight of? In all this ruckus, we have started losing sight of the vision we set for ourselves for the next 3 years, for the following year or month. This pandemic has built an opaque wall blocking our vision!
