Try using the SETTLES approach to help settle your mind. The advice is:

Stay focused on the here and now and avoid thinking too far into the future and take each day one step at a time.

Engage and stay connected to friends, family and support networks. Working together with communities, united we can move through this.

Thoughts are thoughts, not necessarily facts. Be alert to negative thoughts and don’t give them power.

Treat people with kindness, support others through times of uncertainty.

Limit information and time on unhelpful media. Constant exposure to anxiety-fuelling stories drives panic and uncertainty.

Exercise is key, research shows that good physical health is critical for a healthy mind, focus on good sleep, eating well and working out.

Seek help, if you are concerned about yourself or others talk with your supportive friends, GP or EAP Assist.
