For the past few weeks, I've been talking to people about how the Coronavirus pandemic has affected their mental health. To begin with, I presumed a lot of people would relay negative experiences, perhaps an increase in bouts of anxiety and depression. And there definitely are a lot of negative experiences. But I'm also hearing a lot of positive stories. People are finding it easier to (re)focus their energy on projects they've left behind, pick up activities they've been interested in for years, or even reconnect with loved ones. So my question to this community is this: do you think there is a positive mental impact from Coronavirus? If so, in what way? And how has it positively impacted you?
