Keeping positive It is easy to focus on the negatives of the situation right now. Sometimes it may seem that all we hear and see on social media and in the news is about the virus. It can be easy to miss the positives, as our mind naturally looks out for information that fits with how we are currently feeling, so we notice it more. It can be easy to get into the habit of spreading how we feel onto other people too. There are still positive and happy things happening in the world, even during the pandemic. Such as the way many people are coming together and being kind to one another. Focusing on finding them can really help. One great way of keeping you and your family thinking about balanced information is by looking at ‘The Happy News’ newspaper by Emily Coxhead.
