The times we all are facing right now are perhaps the toughest that most of us have ever faced. The pandemic has created a situation of constant anxiety and negativity. Remaining positive and composed during such times is just as important as it is hard. Choose optimism over pessimism because hope is infinitely better to live with than negativity.
You cannot resolve all of the world's problems, but you can change your little part of it to be better for everyone you come in contact with. Listen to positive songs, watch family movies/animes, take walk, try to understand each person's points of view, calmly talk into matter unless it's out of line, do what makes you feel free.
Here are 12 ways you can follow to light up your world with positivity.

Remind yourself that you’ve decided to stay positive, calm, and happy come what may.
Always be grateful
Gratitude is the key to happiness, rather than focusing on the thing that you lack, try focusing on things that you already have. Because no matter how bad your life or day is going, that is a dream for someone else. Be grateful for little things like nature, people, and the opportunities you have. You can start writing journals to practice gratitude.

Bad sleep is one of the important reasons why people are getting negativity these days. Sleep can create positive and happy thoughts in your mind. So, to become a positive person every day 8 hours of deep sleep is very important.
If we don’t get enough sleep, negativity will take over our minds.
Express your feelings

Accept and find solutions
We all face different kinds of problems in our life, it is important for us to solve them, but if you are surrounded by plenty of problems, you freak out and get into negativity. In such a situation figure out what problem needs to be solved right now. make your preference then try to find the solution or ask for help.
