How To Stay Positive During The Times Of Coronavirus: A Simple Five-Step Process To Create Happiness Regardless Of The Circumstances.
We live in difficult times. The coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) has been labeled a pandemic by the World Health Organization. I live in Northern Italy and as you probably already know, here in the Italian Peninsula the situation is difficult to say at least. The whole country has been put under a dramatic total lockdown due to a large number of infected patients. About 60 million people (me included) were placed under quarantine. I cannot even go for a walk around the block. And don’t get me wrong, I completely understand the seriousness of the situation and I respect the government’s decision but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s really hard to accept that. And I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I am extremely grateful for the crazy world of social media because without it I wouldn’t have any contact with my family and friends. So I guess, for me right now the advantages of the online world win over the drawbacks. I currently feel like I am living in an action movie and I am sure I’m not the only one thinking it. I just hope that this pandemic will end soon and we will be able to get back to normality. I pray for this. I pray for everyone affected by COVID-19. This is a serious situation and we should not underestimate or ignore its gravity. Many people still live in denial constantly repeating that it’s not a bid deal. It is a BIG DEAL. We already know that this coronavirus pandemic will change the world, society, and economy. And the best we can do is to educate ourselves on what is taking place so we can better deal with the situation. We need to stay calm and focused during this crisis. We must support each other more than ever. We need to keep a positive mental attitude to be able to get through these trying times. Because I do believe that we can and we WILL become stronger after this pandemic. We will get through this together! And you know what? I also think that instead of just sitting and waiting for this pandemic to end we should put that time to good use and try to make the most of this strange, scary and extremely unpredictable situation.

Hate is almost impossible to avoid and the more you excel in life the more you will get of it. So in some sense, hate is a pretty reliable indicator of success. But to have a better understanding of what that means we need to take a closer look at this phenomenon. So let’s get into this!

This idea of being permanently happy can only be applied to the present moment and things you do in order to achieve your goals. Because happiness is all about intentional actions you take here and now, not about what you think or feel. Happiness is not a feeling but a state of being you consciously enter through the actions you decide to take.
We create our storytelling that directly affects our state of mind and personal well-being. Which basically means that stories and narratives we make up to describe what we perceive through our five senses can trigger pleasant emotions like joy or happiness or unpleasant emotions like anger, fear or sadness. As pleasant emotions tend to do no harm even if they have nothing to do with the real situation (the present moment) the trouble starts when your dramatic storytelling causes negative emotions that create suffering that wasn’t even there at the beginning. Sounds crazy right?

When we want to take a decision we usually rely on our critical and logical thinking completely forgetting about our sixth sense – our intuition. Some call it “gut feeling” or “gut instinct”, I like to call it my the sound of my inner voice. Our intuition is a precognitive knowledge that helps us make decisions, avoid danger and live in a more authentic way. In other words, “gut instinct” is our best life guidance. Of course the best way to make a conscious decision is to combine gut instinct with critical and logical thinking. So be mindful, listen to your gut and use your logical reasoning and you should be fine.
