How to welcome recent government announcements? Feeling sad or disappointed, being angry or anxious, all of these emotions are valid and normal, says Professor Kim Lavoie, who also holds the Canada Research Chair in Behavioral Medicine. However, it is better to focus on the things you can control, as she explains.

Let us remain optimistic; we know it will get better. We have an experience that we did not have a year ago.

A quote from

Kim Lavoie, Canada Research Chair in Behavioral Medicine and Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Quebec in Montreal

If we take a negative and pessimistic attitude, [si nous nous focalisons] on things that we cannot do for the next few weeks, we are sure to feel depressed and hopeless, emphasizes Kim Lavoie.
