Ways to remain positive and optimistic
amidst the current pandemic

We currently are living in very uncertain times and it can be all too tempting to let negative events impact the rest of our day. But if we don’t allow it to have such significance, we are more likely to have a more positive day regardless of the circumstances.

Lets now think about some ways to help keep us optimistic everyday:

What are we grateful for?
We can remain positive by employing gratitude to consider what we already have in front of us and remembering what we can achieve with what we have.
For example, when coping with a difficult situation such as pregnancy, you can remind yourself of the positive result. This will be coming out of the pregnancy with your adorable baby and enjoying taking care of your little bundle of joy!
Goal setting
Another way to remain optimistic is to set goals which are realistic and achievable.
This provides you with a focus and keeps your mind from becoming bogged down with little things, as you will naturally be able to visualise the bigger picture.

Remember, you have the choice at each and every moment to turn your thoughts around from negative to positive to help you power through your day!
