If there's one thing I know for certain, it is that we have changed and we are still changing because of this pandemic as individuals, as families and as businesses.

We've all felt that shift and tried to make sense of so many things over the past few months and according to a survey Ulster Bank has just completed, 85pc of us have changed our priorities.

Most of us want to spend more time with our families, to exercise more, to stop spending money on things we don't need. And we are far more worried about our health and our families' health than the prospect of another recession.
