Sometimes you yourself might not find way on how to be positive in lockdown and downfall in positivity might bring less productiveness in you. During such a situation, what becomes imperative is to set your goal list. It might be to love yourself, to start that book you kept unfinished or complete your assignments: but you need to set that goal list straight and look at it once every morning after waking up and on the night before sleeping.
This will encourage you to work for it and know where you are at that moment and where you have to be in the future.
