The most important thing in ilness is never to lose heart (Nicolai Lenin)

It is known that a positive attitude, hope, and optimism are very important in getting better from an illness.  But, how do we keep the good cheer when we feel ill?  It is not easy. When the body is hurting and the inner sensation is of ill 


, the tendency is to get depressed, sad and desperate.  So you have to think as little as possible about the illness, distract yourself with other positive things.  For example, I like series and movies.  When I feel very sick, I put on something really entertaining and positive.
