The New Normal

The New Normal

Posted by Jill Hawley on Oct 13th 2021

The phrase “the new normal” has been used with increasing frequency given the recent events regarding COVID-19. Most everyone has been affected by this in one way or another, including us at Snorkel-Mart. It would be easy to get bogged down in all the negativity that surrounds this, but we’re trying to look at things optimistically. While this is the new normal, it is only the new normal for now. We don’t know when this will end, but it certainly isn’t the end.

Some of us may feel trapped in our residences, feeling bored or listless, but as long as you have your imagination, you will be in good company! Perhaps try to visualize the vacation or trip you want to take when the worst has passed, to help give you hope for tomorrow. Can you feel the warm sand beneath your feet or the cool breeze over your sun-kissed skin? The taste of your favorite refreshing beverage and the smell of dinner on the grill? So many amazing, beautiful sights above the water, and entirely new worlds below!

What are some of your most notable memories of past trips? Were there any new things you got to experience? Do you have any recommendations or favorite movies, television shows, music, or other media that help you get into a sunny, tropical mood? Together, we can create our own chain of islands at home, until we can explore those abroad.

While things may feel grim and dark now, keep looking to the horizon. The sun will rise.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding our products don't hesitate to contact us. We are committed to helping our customers have a memorable, easy-going experience as they prepare and eventually enjoy their vacations.
