As offices reopen and as kids go back to school, we’re kinda going to miss the special moments we had together at home
Despite what was going on around the world, we found a way to band together from our homes, and create truly unique memories. From video calls to dating at home, we definitely made the most of the situation we were put in.
That’s why Coca-Cola wants to remind us to appreciate our loved ones, because things just taste so much better when we’re together!
Here are five things we’re going to miss about staying home:
1. Spending so much quality time with family and loved ones, with no distractions from the outside
This is especially true for families with younger kids. With schools closed, parents had to take on so much more. And while it was tough, it was really quite special. We’ll miss having our days filled with hugs, kisses, and laughter from the little ones.
Meanwhile, couples got to spend more time with each other than before, from elaborate date nights at home to just kicking back with a glass of Coca-Cola at the end of the day. Adult kids living at home also really learned to appreciate everything their parents do for them, like homecooked food every night <3
2. We spent SO. MUCH. TIME. in the kitchen, whipping up our cravings from scratch
Not only did we save money from eating out all the time, we actually picked up a new skill! There’s something extra satisfying about chowing down on your favourite meal that you recreated at home. Every meal felt a little more special, and tasted a little more delicious
3. Waking up late and working in our jammies all day
No early alarms, no endless snooze buttons, no dressing up, no rush hour traffic… bliss! While working from home had its challenges, it was a welcome change. And it turns out, not impossible to do. With more time to sleep, we felt more awake and productive throughout the day.
4. We finally had some time to ourselves
From binging on Netflix, snacks, and Coca-Cola, to indulging in home spa treatments, boy, did we spoil ourselves rotten! Let’s face it, we deserved sleeping in till the afternoons on weekends, lathering our faces with facial masks, and figuring out how to give each other haircuts.
The last few months were like hitting the ‘reset’ button on life; we took things slowly and we’re finally not suffering from FOMO (because no one’s doing anything, anyway, so what’s there to miss out on?)
We’ve realised that it’s okay to not “do” anything sometimes when we’re overwhelmed, and its okay to take a breather every once in a while.
5. We realised what’s really important to us
Maybe you missed being around other people, connecting, making new friends or meeting old ones. Perhaps you longed for the great outdoors, going on hikes, walking along sandy beaches, or just going for a walk in the park. Or, maybe, you just enjoyed your own solitude.
As much as it was nice to be disconnected from the world for a while, we began to realise how wonderful the smaller things in life made you feel.
All in all, staying at home gave us more perspective on the things that really matter, and we learned so much throughout the whole process, be it about ourselves or the people around us.
Coca-Cola wants to bring you and your loved ones closer, and to help you cherish the special moments with one another
Coca-Cola has always been part of our special moments, be it celebrations or simple everyday moments. We order it at restaurants, sip on it as we munch popcorn at the cinema, and always make sure to stock up on big bottles of it for house parties and potlucks. Now that we’re adapting to the new normal, it continues to be part of the wonderful moments and memories we have together at home.
Watch the video below to see how:
There’s nothing like a refreshing sip of Coca-Cola to accompany hearty family dinners, at-home movie date nights, or to just take a break from work. If there’s one thing that the MCO has taught is, it’s to appreciate those who matter most. No matter what we’re doing, it’s always better together.
Coca-Cola wants to remind us all to live in the moment with the people you love because things just taste better when you’re together.
