At the moment there are all sorts of news that are constantly filling our brains with negativity and the toughest part is, we can’t ignore them. In the months of March and April I was so much engrossed in the news of COVID-19 that sometimes it felt that everything is falling apart and this world is going to end.
Then I decided not to watch any news related to the pandemic, not to react with any memes or messages sent on any social platform, etc. This helped me a lot. I ignored any messages of COVID-19 that were sent on WhatsApp groups.
Being a microbiologist, I knew social distancing, using masks and gloves and maintaining personal hygiene is important. Eating healthy and boosting immunity is important as we don’t have the vaccine yet. So, I sticked to these religiously. Things started getting better. I felt reduction in my negative thoughts.
Positivity and negativity impacts our mind and body in different ways. Science also proves the impact of positive and negative thoughts on our body and mind.
In present scenario our mind constantly receives news related to COVID-19. Everyone talks about it. In the news, any digital platform and at homes we knowingly or unknowingly keep talking about the deadly virus. Our minds are overwhelmed with the negativity.
So we need to cleanse our body and mind and cultivate positive thoughts. We can’t certainly remove the negativity around but we can atleast stop those thoughts from reaching us.
We can do yoga, meditate, and pray. We can spread positive words and positive thoughts because as it seems now this is the way we will be living for at least an year. Thus, we need to stay positive and healthy.
Blogging is a great platform to spread positivity. Positive thoughts are always welcomed by people as they generate positivity around us. Positive thoughts generate positive energy and heals the body.
The mind is everything, what you think you become.Buddha
So, let’s spread positivity and heal ourselves. Let me know what you think about spreading positivity. How can we stay positive during this critical time?
