Trying to stay positive, but the media doesn't help It’s all gonna be over soon!! I tried to maintain an optimistic approach, telling myself “It will blow over soon enough” which so far, isn’t working out great. Usually, when I feel a bit stressed, I go out with my friends to try and distract myself but being locked up in my room isn’t exactly doing me any favours. In this time of crisis the media plays such an important role in determining people's outlooks on what is going on. I think by changing these little things they put out, people will start having a different and more positive attitude towards what is yet to come. But in the mean time... I’ll just keep washing my hands and singing happy birthday.' - Fiza, 17 years-old However the pandemic is affecting you, we hope some of these stores will show that you're not suffering, struggling or even feeling anxious alone.
