The coronavirus pandemic is a source of stress for millions of people across the globe, and many are unsure how to cope with the anxious feelings they’re experiencing as a result. Joey Hubbard, Thrive Global’s Chief Training Office, says one way to redirect and reframe negative thoughts is to practice positive affirmations. These are simple, declarative statements that help you verbalize new thoughts (while stating them in the present tense). These empowering mantras can have profound effects on your mind, and using them in moments of stress helps train your brain to temporarily overcome negative feelings.
