The global coronavirus pandemic has challenged everyone’s lives, but also provides an unexpected opportunity for self-determination and advancement.

Optimism is key to living a happier life each and every day. The effects of the pandemic vary for everyone, but one consequence may have been to afford you more free time. If so, use it! This is an opportunity to mobilize your internal resources, reform your daily habits and schedule, and fully concentrate on planning a path to the future you want to pursue.
