Coping with Coronavirus

Updated: Apr 15

This is such a difficult, strange and unusual time for all of us. All of the ways we normally keep ourselves feeling calm and happy are out of reach for the time being. For all of us there are challenges to overcome. Emotions are likely to be feeling very overwhelming, and none of us knows what will happen next. In these circumstances, it is so very normal for us all to be feeling much more anxious and stressed than usual. It is very easy to get caught up in an anxious worry spiral and find that it's hard to connect with our natural coping resources.

Below are a serious of tools, many of which say similar things but in different ways. You may find some of them useful.
