  • relax and involve yourself in activities you enjoy at home
  • connect with loved ones through phone calls, messages, Whatsapp, emails etc.
  • be kind to yourself
During a crisis, it’s normal to feel uneasy, stressed, fearful or worried. The problem is that our emotions can affect our mental and physical health.
