Split up big tasks
If a task seems overwhelming and difficult to start, try breaking it down into easier chunks, and give yourself credit for completing them.
Allow yourself some positivity
Take time to think about the good things in your life. Each day, consider what went well and try to list 3 things you’re thankful for.
Challenge unhelpful thoughts
The way we think affects the way we feel. Watch our video to learn how to challenge unhelpful thoughts.
Be more active
Being active can help you to burn off nervous energy. It will not make your stress disappear, but it can make it less intense.
Talk to someone
Trusted friends, family and colleagues, or contacting a helpline, can help us when we are struggling. Watch our video for more ideas.
Planning out any upcoming stressful days or events – a to-do list, the journey you need to do, things you need to take – can really help.
