What Dr. Alice Fong can say in an interview
on How to Have a Positive Mindset
:

It’s important that we first establish what is meant by a positive mindset. A positive mindset is one that focuses on all things that are good. And when I say focus on all good things, it doesn’t mean avoiding negative things in life because truly, you can never tell when bad things might happen. 

A positive mindset means that even in the worst possible situation in life, you will still be able to see good things. It means making the most out of a bad situation and turning it into something positive.

On Technology & PTSD:

We live in a scary world and the 24/7 access to all of the scariness due to the technology era and social media is too much for anyone to handle. Most of us struggle to watch or read about real-life atrocities and may have some mild anxiety symptoms as a result. We may avoid the content entirely, experience intrusive and/or ruminating thoughts about the disaster, feel inclined to research it more, or talk about it excessively. When we witness or read about something incredibly disturbing, these are all commonplace and should fade in a matter of days.
