REMEMBER: NOBODY’S PERFECT!
There will be days when it feels that everything you do is wrong. Try to focus on the positive; remind yourself of what is going well. Take one day at a time, or even one hour at a time if you are having a bad day. Have things that help you reconnect with positive thoughts — a favourite song, movie, a chat with an old friend or a book you love. Get out for a walk, even in the garden. Practise mindfulness or yoga or dance... whatever works for you!
