Hey, it's OK...

It’s OK to feel sad, anxious, worried or calm. All emotions are acceptable right now. Feel whatever you are feeling with no guilt or judgement.

Limit your news consumption

As tempting as it is to constantly refresh our newsfeed, try to look at the news once daily. If there is information you need to know, you will hear about it. 

Talk to someone

Have you spoken to anyone today? Text a friend or family member to check in on them and arrange a video chat. 

You're doing great

Remind yourself daily that you are doing great. By staying indoors, you are literally saving lives. You’re a regular superhero! 

See the Positives

Positives can be found in any situation. Use this time to start that hobby, press the reset button or make time for yourself. 

This too shall pass

This won’t last forever. We promise you it won’t. Take each day as it comes. And as each day that passes is another closer to normality. You can do this.
