But how do I know that I’m not coping??

  • If you have ongoing feelings of being scared, anxious and are having worrying thoughts and difficulty concentrating.
  • If you are not sleeping well or find yourself eating a lot more or a lot less.
  • If you are feeling tired, unhappy and have no energy or motivation.
  • If you are getting angry and short tempered more than usual.
  • If you have some physical reactions, such as frequent headaches, body pains, stomach problems or skin rashes.

Well, I have some of these problems ....now what?

  • Take care of your body – Try to eat healthy well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, meditate, mindfulness and get plenty of sleep
  • Make time to unwind - relax Try to do some other activities you enjoy
  • Connect with others – Share your concerns and how you are feeling with a friend or family member. Maintain healthy relationships, and build a strong support system.
  • Take breaks – Make time to relax and remind yourself that strong feelings will fade. Try taking in deep breaths. Try to do activities you usually enjoy.
  • Stay up to date - When you feel that you are missing information, you may become more stressed or nervous. Watch, listen to, or read the news for updates from officials. Be aware that there may be rumours during a crisis, especially on social media. Always check your sources and turn to reliable sources of information like your local government authorities.
  • Take breaks from the Media - watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media and hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting. Try to do enjoyable activities and return to normal life as much as possible and check for updates between breaks.
  • Seek help when needed
