Before the pandemic, my favorite activity was travel. I loved traveling, near and far. I made weekend trips to L.A., was on an airplane multiple times per month, and would hop on an international flight at any opportunity. But now, that’s all changed. It’s been years since I’ve spent so much time in one place. It’s been great. I’ve focused on refining my daily routine, learning, eating healthy, and exercising. Before COVID-19, so much of my life was optimized around being able to travel constantly. Now, I’m optimizing for happiness that doesn’t rely on the constant novelty of travel.
