There are many things we realize we can’t seem to live without during the pandemic. Like a Mobile Phone, a game console, a TV set… Things that keep us entertained or otherwise busy so we don’t have to be anxious all the time on when COVID-19 will see its death. During these trying times, certain objects have also become part of our daily life- mostly because of the new lifestyle that comes with the new normal. Here’s my top five list!
1. Air fryer
With all of us grappling with the New Normal, some of us are also grappling with the fact that we need to watch our weight more. This is where an air fryer come in handy. Of course, this doesn’t guarantee that we lose weight. It only helps trim the fat out of all the food we fry and get into our system.
2. Hair trimmer
Whether it’s for your hair, beard or pet fur, having a hair trimmer around is useful–as long as you know how to work it. At first, having one around was deemed a need because salons and barber shops had to close shop due to the pandemic. But now, having one around is also necessary because the cost of having a haircut has become more exorbitant more than ever. Take for instance my hairdresser who usually charges 200 per cut. Now, he charges 400 pesos.
3. Wi-Fi Extender
This actually works well for those who lounge or stay in a room where wi-fi hardly reaches them. This is a life-saver for people whose life depends on the internet- whether it’s for personal or social reasons or professional.
4. Air humidifier
This purchase is not anymore a luxury but a necessity for those who want a calming vibe inside their house (especially those stressed with the COVID-19 situation and those who fear the new strain). And with many affordable dehumidifiers around, having one around is now easy peasy.
5. Ring Light
Having a ring light is necessary for those who take selfies often or those who are into TikTok or Vlogging. It’s also a must for online sellers who depend on quality photos to be able to successfully sell they products online.
