Things to be Thankful for in 2020

By Haniya Ghazi //

Friends and Family

It is important for us to be thankful for the people around us — especially during these trying times. Call your grandparents, tell your friends how much you appreciate them, FaceTime your parents and siblings if you are on campus. The people who love us the most are the ones who we should be extra thankful for this year. 

The Last Few Days of Warmth and Sunshine


November is one of the last months before winter is in full swing, so take advantage of it. Take a walk or go for a run outside and enjoy the fresh air and sun before it gets too cold to appreciate it. Especially with social distancing and COVID-19, finding activities indoors is difficult, so soak it all in while you can!

Extra Time for Yourself 

While COVID-19 has changed our lives drastically, one positive thing that has come out of it is that with many things being closed and remote schooling, we now have more time during the day to take a second for ourselves. That is something that, amidst the chaos, we can be thankful for. Use the time you would normally be going places to do something for yourself as a break. Read a book, watch TV, take a walk, work out, cook some yummy food, hang out with friends, and so much more. 

Being Healthy


During this pandemic, we should all be thankful if we are able to stay healthy and sickness-free. But we can only be thankful for that if we take the measures necessary to stay healthy. Take care of yourself and others; it is so important.
