Negative attitudes such as tiredness, fear, and stress that are transferred to the environment are as or more contagious than COVID-19. Tony Schwartz and Emily Pines
In addition, they ensure that human beings have 2 ways of facing the situations that arise: the infantile and the adult.
In this sense, what our adult profile uses to control our child side is emotional intelligence.

For these times of social isolation, it is important to have the ability to cope with the uncertainty of tomorrow.

We must be able to not lose control and properly manage our emotions.
This environment of negativity affects us all to a greater or lesser extent. So we talk about living a time of survival.
For the most part, human beings tend to act reactively, living day by day, without carrying out an analysis of pros and cons when making decisions.
Adequate survival in these times involves taking time for reflection and developing an optimistic point of view in each situation.

This will not be the exception.
Unexpected situations, which no expert has been able to predict, are opportunities to:
Remember that according to many experts: intelligence is the ability to adapt over time and survive. This implies anticipating crises, otherwise learning from them.
Immanuel Kant said well:

Given the international situation, and the great changes in the economy, in addition to the new types of work that are emerging, we live in a time of great uncertainty.
The future is uncertain and unpredictable. But if we can't be very objective, isn't it better to keep our minds positive?
We can affirm that today new levels of uncertainty are being reached worldwide.
