Keep your mind focused on the present moment, and what you can currently control.

Distract yourself from worries by doing something else. Absorb yourself in a hobby, get some exercise, watch a film, or chat with friends.

Try not to overcheck the news, and only seek information from reliable sources.

Share your worries with friends and colleagues.

Talk about how you’re feeling and reach out if you need help.

Learn some relaxation techniques; try a yoga class or some mindfulness.

Be kind to yourself and other people; self-criticism reinforces anxiety, so don’t be too hard on yourself.
