Take care of yourself


• Rely on your personal strengths and have confidence in your abilities.

• Remind yourself of the winning strategies you used in the past to overcome difficulti­es. There is no one-size-fits-all solution! Each and every one of us must take steps to foster our own well-being.

Enjoy life’s little pleasures, such as listening to music, taking a warm bath, reading, exercising, etc.

If you live close to nature, make the most of it. Breathe deeply and slowly as you walk.

Learn to delegate, and allow others to help you.

Ask for help when you feel overwhelme­d.

• Lend a hand in your community in a way that respects your personal limits and public health directives. By helping others, you can improve their wellness and your own as well.

• Think about what has meaning and value for you. Reflect on the important things in your life that you can hold onto in hard times.

• Reduce the stressors in your life.

• While it is important to stay informed, limit the amount of time spent reading about COVID-19. Informatio­n overload can increase stress and anxiety, and even cause depression.
