It’s not easy to stay positive when the vast majority of news coming out of the world is negative, scary, and warning of even grimmer times to come. Constantly reading the doom and gloom stories can quickly wear on your mental health, which doesn’t help when so many of us are cooped up at home all day. However, some are finding that there are silver linings to this difficult period, and one woman is encouraging people to share.

The 19th founder and CEO Emily Ramshaw found that she has more time to spend with her daughter now that she can’t travel. Not only that, she’s spending more time with her sister and Facetiming her parents daily, generally increasing her time with family, even if she be physically close to them.

Ramshaw is encouraging others to share the positive aspects of their own coronavirus lockdowns, and many others came forward to say that they’re spending more time with their families and especially their children. Others are simply enjoying a slowed-down life, finding more time to take walks, play with pets, and practice gratitude.

Some are thankful that people are discovering a newfound appreciation for teachers and childcare workers.
