Here are ten tips to help you cope in times of crisis:
1.Talk it out – a problem shared is a problem halved. Talk to a
friend, family member, your minister or a counsellor
2.Write it down – get your most intimate feelings off your chest.
3.Get physical – spring clean, go for a walk, hit or kick a ball.
4.Blow it away – take a big breath in. As you exhale, relax and
imagine your worries flowing away with your breath
5.Surprise yourself – be creative and do the opposite of what you’d
6.Get on with it – allow yourself only 30 minutes a day to worry.
7.Get it in perspective – how much will the issue matter in six
months’ time, two years’ time, or a decade from now?
8.See the positive – What good consequences could come from it?
9.Think it through – make a list of possible actions. Make a decision
and act on it.
10.Make an escape – get away for a few hours or days
See the funny side – never take yourself or life too seriously.
