Day 25 of lockdown is here and will soon be behind us like the rest of the days so far, but what have we learned while spending more time with ourselves and the ones we love at home?

Have we asked ourselves the question, “how can I grow from this experience?”. Maybe many of us have, while others are still getting there. Whether it’s a small realisation or a big one, the lockdown has provided us with the perfect opportunity to be with ourselves and our thoughts, and to learn from an experience few come across in their lifetime.

A man in the Western Cape decided to respond to his vegetables being stolen by planting more on his pavement for those in need. People across the world are learning to be their own hairdresser out of desperation and Google’s top search is how to make alcohol at home.

Whether lockdown has been easy or particularly difficult for you, it’s worth it all if you are able to grow even a little bit.

While you’re considering, take a look at some empty yet beautiful views from across the City on the 25th day of lockdown:
