Survival is a series of small steps, try not to get overwhelmed!
Updated: Mar 30, 2020
As a mental and physical resilience specialist, Survival Wisdom is certainly experienced in dealing with crisis situations. However, the recent Coronavirus pandemic represents an unprecedented challenge, on a global scale, and has caused widespread disruption to our daily lives.
During this transition period, and to ensure that everyone is remembering to take care of their mental health, we have teamed up with Coast Communications – a leading communications agency based in the South West – to provide hints, tips and reassurance in this incredibly uncertain time.
Over the coming weeks we will provide regular posts that will include coping strategies, helpful links and general mindfulness tips which can be used to help in adapting to this period of change.
To kick us off, we want to ensure that the information you receive is credible, accurate and up to date. Social media is a powerful tool and can be a valuable source of news, humour and distraction. However, it can also aid the spread of misinformation and anxiety.
With that in mind, we recommend using the official Gov.ukand NHS.ukwebsites for the latest news and updates regarding Coronavirus and the Government’s self-isolation measures.
It is also important that you develop a long term strategy and routine that will help you to adapt to this new way of life. To help, we rely on a strategy called PLAN – Protection, Location, Acquisitionand Navigation
Over the coming weeks we will provide useful pieces of information that will help you build on each tenant of the PLAN strategy.
To start you off we have listed some tips below for the Protection element:
· Clean hands with soapy water
· Keep yourself fit, both physically and mentally
· Above all #stayathome and be kind to yourself and to others
