  • Treat yourself how you would treat your best friend – check in on yourself and ask yourself if you are ok
  • Discover JOMO (the Joy of Missing Out, opposite of FOMO, Fear of Missing Out), and give news and social media feed a break.
  • Acknowledge your successes, show yourself some gratitude We are always quick to do that for others, so why not take a few minutes and consider all you have achieved.
  • Hang out with your 'cheerleaders'. Spend time with the people who uplift and support you.
