Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho shares that an easy way to combat feeling overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic is to choose optimism, which she shares starts with gratitude. She suggests saying out loud three small things that you’re grateful for today and spending a few minutes visualizing a more positive future.
