A new lifestyle for the Lebanese?

05/28/2020

Lebanon has been facing major economic crisis before the massive hit of the coronavirus. However, with COVID-19 appearing, it has undoubtedly shaken the Lebanese economy even further. The lockdown has resulted in a breakpoint for many. That being said, there is no guarantee that Lebanon will go back to normal post corona and that is because despite the new measures that the virus has implemented, the Lebanese lira is sadly down falling. Therefore, the Lebanese people will have to adapt to not only a new normal involving social distancing after the virus vanishes, but also a new normal after the lira crashes, emerging a lifestyle slightly different than what the majority of the Lebanese people have been accustomed to.

Luckily, there are new existent ways that the Lebanese can adapt to amid the economic crisis that can still guarantee a fun time, at a low cost. Here are a few proposed examples:

  1. Lebanon’s agriculture land is typically devoted to agriculture. Therefore, more reliance on internal production and agriculture should take place. It is time that we support local businesses and local products!
  2. The food industry in Lebanon is definitely amazing and what better way to socialize than to head to your favorite restaurant. As this does not have to change, less visits to restaurants can take place and perhaps enjoy picnic visits from time to time instead. Less costly and as fun!
  3. It is time that the Lebanese adapt to the culture of riding a bicycle when it is absolutely unnecessary to drive. No cost, environmentally friendly, and even faster (no body misses the traffic).  
  4. Did you know Lebanon actually has many free beaches? Avoid trips to exceedingly expensive beaches in Lebanon and discover new free of charge beaches that are just as beautiful!
