Health and Wellbeing
It's okay not to be okay.
Searching for your next challenge can be stressful if you're not experiencing the success that you had hoped for. This may lead to you feeling anxious or depressed. You might be concerned about finances, health and family members. It is OK to feel like this. These are normal reactions to uncertainty. It’s OK to ask for help.
Look after yourself
Covid-19 has impacted on many of the normal coping strategies we use to deal with stress, and on the everyday activity that underpins our emotional wellbeing. During this time, we may need to be more creative and thoughtful about how we look after ourselves.
