COVID-19: Facing what's next, together

Looking forward, keeping well

The last few months have been unprecedented...

Many countries around the world have responded in different ways to the spread of Covid-19. But we have all been affected in some way, from our day-to-day routines to our fundamental sense of financial security. We have all felt fear for the health of our friends and family and for some, the unimaginable grief of losing loved ones has put a huge strain on their wellbeing.

Even as some parts of our lives begin to take on a more familiar shape, you might feel vulnerable, unsure about the future and anxious about the adjustments you may need to continue to make for the foreseeable future. Changes to our lives, including the way we travel, work, shop, and interact with people may be with us for a while.

If life where you live has changed significantly as a result of Covid-19, you may also feel torn between a desire for life to return to ‘normal ’ and a recognition that your experiences over the last few months have been a chance to reflect on how you spend your time and energy. There might be a certain amount of pressure to get straight back to ‘business as usual ’, but perhaps you want that to look different now. And rushing back will bring a stress and pressure all of its own.

With so much change and uncertainty, taking care of your wellbeing has never been more important.
