COVID-19 pandemic has hit us hard. We can’t deny the impact Corona pandemic laid on our life, especially income. As the problem is real and serious, we need to calm down and find out how we can recover from the negative effects of Corona.
It is easy to say that there is no need to panic. But, in reality it is a matter of concern and we need to think tactically and prepare ourselves strongly.
How You Can Overcome Impact of COVID On Income?
Provide Priority To Short-Term Goals
Normalcy hasn’t yet returned. If some amount is still left to invest, it is best to concentrate on near-term non-negotiable goals. After the return of normalcy, you can counterbalance for long-term goals. It is the right time to think and analyse your expenses.
Stop Wasting Food
We have already experienced staying confined in home for months. We also realized that we can survive by consuming home-cooked food. Undoubtedly, COVID-19 has laid bad influence on our income. So, stop wasting food you usually store in home. For instance, instead of throwing away the boxes of Oats or Quinoa, you must consume them before expiry. Again, purchase responsibly.
Accept What Many Come
Many people have lost their jobs during the recent lock down. Many boys and girls didn’t get salary, while some got nominal pay. People who have lost their jobs should accept a job that is coming. All businesses are not going to close down fully.
Moreover, many organizations are offering work from home facility to employees. Accept it. Again, if you have creative knowledge, start freelancing. It may not give you lucrative earning in the starting, but gradually you will earn well.
Focus On Other Countries’ Activities
We are constantly getting used to the ‘new normal’. We have no other choice. Social media provides us multitude of information. So, train your ears and eyes and concentrate on solutions other countries have found out to cope with COVID-19 impact.
Besides, you have to pay heed to the sayings of government and local authorities. Introduction of many apps has taken place giving opportunities to earn. Use them.
Care For Others
You may live in a locality where there are elderly people. Again, there can be families with zero earning member. Reach out to them and share a helping hand. Involve in voluntary activities like community kitchen.
Don’t Complain About Your Current Job
It is not the right time to worry about the loss you faced in your investment’s value. Economy of the entire world has been influenced by COVID-19 as the markets have crashed. Currently, income and the flow matter. If you have your job and its giving monthly salary, then you are quite fortunate.
Stop Non-Essential Purchase
You may be a shopaholic. Again, you may tend to buy things that you don’t really need. You have to stop this habit at least for sometimes. Corona Pandemic issue is not over yet. No one knows what’s in store. So, purchase only those things that you will surely use.
Start A Small Business
There are lots of families in India that have only one earning member. Again, many young adults stay alone or have no one to support. There can be countless issues. The main thing is income. Without a source of income, no one can live. If you have lost your job or your earning got badly hit by COVID, you can start a small business online or offline.
If you choose online mode, join reselling sites or apps. You need to invest only time. Again, you can start making quality videos for YouTube or social media sites which can include tutorials, reviews, gaming, education, cooking, etc.
Furthermore, you can earn by writing content and being a virtual assistant too.
Again, you can take help of local counselor and start your own small food shop, tea and snacks stall, stationery shop, etc. Remember, there is nothing called ‘low work’. Every work is good as far it includes ethics and conscience and is not harming anyone. Live with dignity instead of being in debt.
Rent Out Your Two Wheeler Or Four Wheeler
One option is to give your bike or car for rent. Many people search for bike or car rent for job, travelling, goods delivery, etc. This can be a good earning opportunity for you.
Another option is to join companies like Uber, Ola, etc. and earn. Bike riders can work as food or goods delivery workers by joining Swiggy, Zomato, Uber Eats, any renowned grocery company, etc. Also, you can work as a Rapido driver.
COVID-19 Pandemic Might Have Impact Your Income, But Not Your Strength!
Only worrying, panicking and sitting idle won’t fetch you any result. You have to get up and work. Do your exercise regularly, eat home cooked food, do not waste food, purchase only what you need, save as much as you can, do your own household chores, start online or offline work, and earn money. Most importantly, use face covering mask and hand sanitizer without fail. Maintain social distance.
Stay healthy and earn money. Remember, you are not alone in this situation.
