Here are some ways to build a strong mental immune system:
Reach out – Don’t put relationships on the back burner. Instead, identify simple, realistic ways to reach out and actively build connection into your daily life so you don’t feel alone.
Stay optimistic – There’s no night that doesn’t end in a dawn! Spend a few minutes every day actively visualising positive outcomes.
Accept yourself – Identify your most positive qualities and expect that you can meet the goals you have set out for yourself.
