How to Stay POSITIVE amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

How to Stay POSITIVE amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

1. Savor Small Moments

Even during lockdown you still have many small moments to savor. The smell of coffee, the feel of the warm shower on your back and so on. When you stop to take in these moments, rather than let them rush by on automatic pilot, you are giving your brain a chance to process the pleasure, which boosts your serotonin – the feel good neurotransmitter that helps elevate your mood and make you feel calm

2. Stay Active

Choose a physical activity that you enjoy and can do regularly. You may like walking and climbing the stairs. Others may choose running, exercising or yoga. Whatever you choose, commit to it at least three times a week.

3. Have a Sense of Gratitude

There are still things to be thankful for. For those who have food and shelter be thankful for that. Having a daily practice of writing down the 5 things that we are grateful for will build more positive and happy connections in the brain making it more likely to choose happiness.

4. Spur Positive Thinking Without Denying What you Fell

There’s a power to whatever you’re thinking. Positive thinking plants the seed for positive life experiences. We all have those instances when frustration and stress threaten to ruin our day and it’s up to us to correct and reclaim our mood and productivity. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple positive thought to act as that little reminder that everything will be OK.
