Stay positive and keep smiling

Positive

We’re living through strange and unprecedented times. Many of us are worrying about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our loved ones, our own health, our employment and our finances. And with the lockdown in many parts of the world many of us can’t see family and friends for the foreseeable future. Not surprisingly, we might be feeling a bit blue…

What can we do to cheers up ourselves and others around you?

Here are a few ideas for staying positive during this unsettling time:

  1. Join the Teddy Bear Hunt in your neighbourhood. Prop a teddy bear from a window of your home (or car), visible from the road so little kids (and not-so-little adults)could play teddy bear spotting when they go for walks with their families around the neighbourhood
  2. ๐Ÿงธ
  3. Don’t have a teddy bear at home? Make rainbows or display any other colourful drawings and positive messages on your windows.
  4. ๐ŸŒˆ
  5. Tune your singing voice, polish your dancing moves and join the #QuarantineChallenge2K20 with your nearest and dearest.
  6. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŽ™๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ•บ
  7. Do a workout with your children, pets or flatmates.
  8. ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿป๏ธ
  9. Stay crafty and creative
  10. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

You are a Genius!

Genious
From QuotesWave

According to a 1968 study by George Land and Beth Jarman,ย published in their bookย Breakpoint andย Beyond, preschoolers are geniuses in divergent thinking.ย Land and Jarman administered a divergent thinking test to 1600 people; divergent thinking being the capacity for creativity, the ability to determine multiple solutions to a problem. This is the type of test administered by NASA to select innovative engineers and scientists. The results in the sample group were astounding โ€“ 98% of the participants scored at the genius level for divergent thinking. The sample group? Five-year-olds.

In this longitudinal study, only 32% of 10-year-olds, and 12% of 15-year-olds reached the same level of creative thinking. Of 280 000 adults tested, only 2% reached genius level. Robinson used an example of divergent thinking in his video provided below: that divergent thinkers would be able to come up with 200 uses for a paper clip, whereas most of us could only come up with 10-15. A divergent thinker would think outside the box. Does the paper clip have to be in the form we know it? If there are no limitations, why not a 200-foot paper clip made of foam?

We are all genius in our own unique way, no matter how deep our genius got buried over the years. Rediscover your genius and fill up your life with laughter and joy. You are amazing!
