Corona Virus - How to think Positively and why it is the only way forward

Hi Everyone,

Whilst we are all in a state of trying to avoid catching the obviously extremely contagious Corona virus’s important to remember that it is not the only thing that is contagious.

Did you know that positive and negative thinking are also contagious? This is an instinctive reaction. It happens at a subconscious level via words, thought, feelings and body language. Whenever you have a group of people, if one person has a strong feeling about something – unless there is a direct opponent – the rest of the group will also feel that way.

I have also experienced this on group shopping trips. Even when a shop is full of glorious items if one person is super enthused about something you will find most of the others on the trip will want to try on exactly the same thing. If they buy it, several others will too. If one person adamantly decides to come along and not spend on anything you can basically consider the tour to be a lost cause as all others will decide to do the same.

Now is the time to practise positive thinking. We will get over this Corona Virus pandemic. We will get our freedom back and there are a lot of things to look forward to. Spread your positive thoughts, make them contagious. Let the world get into recovery mode soon!

Times like these can make it difficult to practise positive thinking. But now more than ever it is the only way forward. If we start thinking positively  and expect positive results then they will happen!

Excuse the photo above – but I always think a little humour also goes a long way toward recovery – smile!

How to practise positive thinking – 5 easy steps:

1. Visualise

Use your imagination to visualise a favourable situation or outcome.

2. Use Positive Words

Whenever speaking to others have something positive to say. Use positive words, encourage others.

3. Smile more

It’s amazing how much easier it become to think positively when you smile.

4. Be conscious of your thoughts

Every time a negative thought pops into your mind be conscious of it and replace it with a positive thought.

5. Persevere and have faith

Regardless of your present circumstances, think positively, expect only favourable results and situations and you will find circumstances change accordingly. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but over time they will.


A good friend once said to me “there is always a way forward”. Now is the time to think of a good way forward for you.

Phew, now I managed to get that all written down, I’m going to sit back and relax – smile!


Coping with home time

If you are currently, like me, confined mostly to home, make the most of your time at home:

  • Use it as an opportunity to get to understand the rest of your family better.
  • Spend some fun consciously quality time together – i.e. set time aside to do fitness or play a game together.
  • Spread kindness and positive vibes to your family and friends. Even though you may not be able to physically meet, there are still loads of ways to keep communication channels open. I just heard about Zoom being used in New York for online dance party’s – they sound like so much fun.
  • Introduce a routine to your day to give you things to look forward to. Do something special in weekends so you can still tell them apart from a regular day. Even something small like introducing special longer meals during weekend can make a huge difference to your overall mood.
