     During this pandemic, many people are going through hard times and things are not like before. For many people, going through this hard time, it is a challenge to keep a good mindset. Keeping a good mindset may be a challenge to keep up with, but later, it may be very helpful in life.

     Due to COVID-19, many people have lost their jobs and many businesses have gone bankrupt. Kids also have become sad and bored because they are always stuck at home not able to go out and play with their friends. They can not seem to think optimistically and seem very down. Keeping a good mindset can help in many ways to have a healthy mind. One main way of having a good mindset is thinking positive thoughts and focusing on the good things. Thinking of the good that comes out of the bad can be a step to a good mindset. According to healthline finding the silver lining in bad experiences is good. “When you’re faced with one, focus on the good things no matter how small or seemingly insignificant they seem. If you look for it, you can always find the proverbial silver lining in every cloud — even if it’s not immediately obvious.” Identifying your negative points is also something that is an important step when it comes to keeping a good mindset. Finding your negative points can help you know what some things you need to change in order to fix your downsides. People can also talk to the people around them and ask for the help they need. 

      Keeping a positive mindset is important in many ways and is much healthier than a negative mindset. Even though this pandemic is a hard time for many people, keeping a positive mindset may help in many ways.
