Time to talk

At difficult times our brains can feel full of worrying thoughts. “I’ll never get through this,” “what if I get ill?” “what if my family get ill?” These are all normal. Try writing your thoughts to clear your mind and talk to your family about them, they may be having the same thoughts as you, which is OK.


Colour breathing -sit or lie comfortably and close your eyes. Imagine a colour that feels good to you e.g. the blue of the sky or the warm yellow of the sun. As you breathe in, imagine this colour slowly spreading through your whole body. Notice how this makes you feel. Now, imagine the colour of your worry and as you breathe out, slowly let this colour leave your body.
