Follow the official advice. The government guidelines and your organisation’s advice (if applicable) should be your main source of information. Doing what you can to keep safe can help to give you a little peace of mind.

Limit your news intake. Taking in too much information could stress or scare you. Choose when you’ll read the news (twice a day perhaps) and stick to trusted sources.

Communicate! This is so important while we’re all working from home and in isolation. Figure out with your colleagues how you can best collaborate and support each other. It’ll be a case of trial and error, so don’t worry if you need to refine as you go along. Ask people the question: “What do you most need?” Try this with your teammates to find out how you can really help each other and how they can help you.

Try yoga, breathing and exercise each day. These can all help your mind and body. There are many online classes on YouTube that you can access for free as well as meditation apps and podcasts to download
