Here are the Top 5 Most Important Life Skills to Survive a Pandemic, according to PRNewsire.com, 

1.  An ability to stay focused.  It’s a lot harder when you’re working from home. Your not in your normal office environment and the kids are screaming and hanging from the ceiling fan. Keep your focus.

2.  The ability to let things go.  Don’t sweat the small stuff.  And if you have a bad day, try not to dwell on it. Look forward to a brighter tomorrow.

3.  Patience.  Get used to the idea that things might take longer than usual, or operate a little differently.  And it might be a while before we can get back to normal.

4.  Acceptance.  So you can face problems head-on instead of ignoring them or pretending they don’t exist.
