HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:

In this unprecedented period of global uncertainty, we felt it was necessary to put together a coronavirus anxiety workbook to provide our community with much needed support.

The first thing to note right now is that it’s completely normal to be experiencing a wide range of emotions. Accepting your feelings is an important first step to building resilience. The simple act of naming your emotions has been found to benefit wellbeing. So, take a moment now to tune into your body and notice how you’re feeling. You may be feeling:

  • Anxious
  • Stressed
  • Worried
  • Fearful
  • Low
  • Lonely
  • Overwhelmed
  • Helpless
  • Frustrated
  • Guilty
  • Angry

Remember: It’s okay to feel discomfort. Accepting distress is often the quickest way to feel immediately calmer.

Note: This toolkit may be used to support youth worker wellbeing. Although not specifically designed for youth, practitioners may find this toolkit useful in working with young people. The toolkit is also available in Spanish, German, Dutch, and Turkish.
