Help with anxiety and feeling scared

Most of us have never had to live during a global pandemic before. We have never experienced a lock down or how it feels to be isolated in our own homes. Many of us will find the experience very stressful and something we just don’t know how to cope with.

Hopefully some people are finding solace in what we actually can do.

We can exercise, which is known to be good for our mental wellbeing.

We are also allowed to communicate with our friends and family, albeit remotely. Picking up the phone, or trying out a video chat, is a good way to feel more connected.

And sometimes we are finding it is the little things, a new leaf shoot emerging, for example, that can make us smile.

We have collated a few useful links with different versions on how to cope with the mental stress of coronavirus, for different people in society. We hope it helps.
