How to Keep a Positive Attitude While Injury Healing?
- When you fall, it's part of the basic human condition to get back up again, learn, and progress.

Setbacks make you smarter and more agile
This is going to sound crazy at first glance, but hear me out:
The best way to remain positive after a setback is to realize that you're actually much better off now than before the setback. Think about it this way, if you never had any setbacks in life how could you possibly learn anything? You would become stagnant and lost at some point in your life.
Onwards and upwards!
