Our lessons from lockdown have inspired woman and home readers to reveal what they've learned and we're sharing them with you because they could help us this time round...
What lessons we learned from lockdown is the gift that keeps on giving and when it comes to advice - you can never have too much, right?
Well, woman&home readers have shared on Facebook the things that's helped get them through months of uncertainty during the world health pandemic and they're pretty good tips.
So in a follow up to our special advice we've compiled your lessons learned in a bid to help us all through these tougher times ahead.
Lesson learned: Find alternative ways to spend your day
Celia, said, "I only watch the news once a day. I have enjoyed the radio much more, it has brightened up many a day when I've felt down. The phone calls and messages from friends and family and my radio have been my saviours."
Filling time with things that we don't normally get chance to do has been refreshing, and when you're forced to switch off the TV and put down your phone, it's surprising what enjoyment it can bring.
2. Lesson learned: Audio books are a great escapism
Meanwhile Audrey's lesson learned is to turn to literacy to escape. She said, "I love my Audio reading Wolf Hall. Brilliant. And our history so well read and makes you realise there has always been trouble in our lovely country. Life goes on for the lucky. Always look on the bright side of life."
3. Lesson learned: Cherish those you love
Being cut off from seeing friends and family through various restrictions has helped us all realise just how important people are. And while you might not see them in person, there are plenty of ways to let them know you're there.
And it's a lesson learned by Pauline. She shared, "Cherish your friends and family and keep in touch with them."
4. Lesson learned: Cut down on your news intake
Limiting exposure to the news is something which has helped many people - as watching something over and over again can only add to anxiety.
Mandi, advised, "Stop watching the news and it will be OK" to which Victoria agreed adding, "Mandi I agree I stop watching the news in first lock down."
Meanwhile, as many couples turned to each other to become makeshift hairdressers, with positive and disastrous results. And with lessons learned from the latter, there's no wonder hair salons have been inundated with appointments ahead of isolation 2.0.

5. Lesson learned: DIY haircuts... not for the feint-hearted or the non-skilled
Niamh admitted, "I've learned not to cut my partner's hair again." With trips to the barbers or hair salons as often as every three weeks, when they closed for months on end, people had two choices.
Either leave it to grow wild, or ask their partner or friend to help give them a guided trip - even if it was using YouTube tutorial.
But trusting your partner with the scissors or hair clippers pushed some people to the edge. While some might be thinking of a back up career in hairdressing, others have been banned from being let loose on their locks again.
And while everything will grow back - eventually - at least those who vow never to snip away can get away with a dodgy cut now the nights are drawing in darker earlier.
Just like isolation 2.0...every cloud has a silver lining right?
