In the current situation of pandemic there is chaos in the mind and lives of each one of us. We have somehow left all the problems of day to day lives on one side and have focused all our energy on thinking about coronavirus and the toll it is taking on people’s lives. Each day we get to hear how it is ruthlessly spreading across the globe restricting us to the four walls of our houses or to many of us the four walls of the rented accommodation away from our family. Irrespective of how much we try but we are fed with the related information from all the sides which is making us pessimistic about our existences. However, we need to take steps to curb this pessimism and nip it in its bid before it gets too strong and enormous to land us in depression before the things finally get better. Here are few tips that can be of great help to bring positivity during coronavirus :
1. Limit access to news
One of the behaviors that all of us are tentatively sharing these days is a curiosity to know more and more about the information related to COVID-19. We tend to have news channels running on television the entire day telling us about the spread of the virus and the death tools. If we still have some room left in our mind then the social networking sites do their jobs of spreading the negativity though in the form of new. Thus, one thing that you need to do is be aware but not linger on to these news the entire day.
Perks of limiting the news
By limiting your access to news channel, you can get more time to spend watching something that is light and full of positivity. This will bring a new hope and positivity.
2. Get hope by digging the past
It is not the first pandemic that the world is experiencing though it might be the first to a lot of us. It you dig into the past you will come across other severe pandemics that the world has endured. It is not just the pandemics but also you will get to know about other natural calamities that the world has faced but survived.
Perks of digging into the past
One benefit of going through the history is making a room for positivity in your mind and heart. Having read about all the unforeseen things that the globe has come across but survived you will get to know how strong nature itself is to endure it all and how it transfers the strength to mankind to deal with it. Yes, it gives you the hope of surviving it all, safe and sound.
3. Watch comedy
It is rightly said that making someone cry is easy but to make someone smile is a difficult task. However, there are a lot of people who are blessed with this art of making others smile. There are a lot of comedy programs and channels telecasted on television. Have access to these and enjoy comedy with your loved ones.
Perks of watching comedy
Comedy is known to lighten your mood as well as your thoughts. In this world that at this point of time is filled with all sorts of stress, anxiety and negativity, it is very important to make some room for positivity in your mind and health. It gives you a break from constantly thinking on negative lines. This is the break that you actually require the most this time.
4. Don’t crib about quarantine
Yes, we know that it is hard to digest quarantine days. However, quarantine days are not as bad as you consider them to be. Just like every coin has two sides, similarly quarantine days also have two sides. While on one side these are causing you trouble but on the lighter side these are giving you ample time to spend with your family and make good memories with them which is actually not possible if you keep living a busy life as you usually do.
