Tips for Well-being
Staying well - both physically and mentally - during the pandemic when things are turning difficult, is utterly crucial for all of us. No matter if it's about yourself or your friends, managing stress and keeping the positivity in mind means a lot. Never underestimate the power of your empathy, comfort and support to a friend who may be undergoing distress.
Check out the Coolminds website for tips on well-being: reducing anxiety, managing loneliness, and at-home exercises that help you feel better. If you know someone who's been suffering and you're unsure what to do, there are also ways for you to help a struggling friend. Or you may take a look at the Peer Support booklet for more details.
Stay healthy mentally and physically and we’ll make it through together!
