Positivity is Key!

Positivity is Key!

Andrew Chalmers, Reporter

The COVID-19 outbreak is changing the way we live life and how we view the world. There is a lot of negativity right now but I think focusing on the positives will help us view this unnatural time in a different light.

First off, all of us get to spend some much needed time with our family and comfort them as well as ourselves. Our families know us as well as anybody and when we are stressed and don’t know what to do, our family are the people we turn to and right now is the easiest time we can do that. Our families are the people who will help all of us get through this bizarre time.

Secondly, we all have time to finally rest and take a breath from the nonstop grind life puts us through. Life puts us through so much stress that sometimes we need to take a breath and contemplate life for a second. Even being quarantined is not the ideal situation, this is one of the best opportunities we have to take a breath and reflect on life for a moment.

Finally, we get to appreciate the things we took for granted. I know a lot of us wanted a break from school but now we all want to go back and we took that for granted. All athletes are taking their sports for granted right now because now we cannot play the thing that makes us the happiest. After the quarantine is over, we will all finally appreciate everything we took for granted and I think it will be for the better.

If we think of the positives instead of the negatives during this time, we will all be happier and less stressed. I hope everyone stays safe and stays positive!
