Much stress and emotional suffering comes from how we think. Many people suffer from “catastrophizing and awfulizing,” or the propensity to make things worse than they really are. Of course, you may be thinking that the current pandemic fits that scenario.

If you can incorporate even a few, I can guarantee you will feel calmer:
