  • Limit time spent on news watching/following (whether SA has 1 or 10 Covid-19 virus cases, nothing changes about what you need to do.
  • Remember that what you hear on the news depends on what they choose to focus on, & that they tend to use shock value, reporting on the extremes.
  • If you have a compromised immune system or a medical condition you’re worried about, speak to your doctor for more specific guidance.
  • Practice relaxation techniques to ease stress levels & help your immune system.
  • Try Mindfulness to stay in the present moment, rather than living in future ‘what ifs’.
  • Question your thoughts to see if they’re facts or fears, knowledge or assumption.
  • Remind yourself that uncertainty does not guarantee danger.
