We are all more anxious than normal and love is anxiety’s greatest antidote. Even if we need to keep our physical distance, we can meet each other’s gaze, smile and look after each other.

2. Be Active - Show your moves

Why not put some music on and dance to your favourite tunes? Moving your body is a great mood shifter. If you’re very brave, record it and share it on TikTok.

3. Take Notice - Feel your breath

Take a break from the news stories and social media coverage. Find a quiet place. Take some long, slow deep breathes. Feel your breath and notice the tension leave your body.

4. Keep Learning - Get colourful

If you are fed up with repeat episodes of Friends, then why not get out some paints and make a wonderful colourful mess. It doesn’t have to a masterpiece – and it’s great to do with kids.

5. Give - Act local
