Take care of your body
Eat healthy, balanced meals; exercise regularly and get sleep

Connect with others
Utilize and maintain relationships and support systems

Take breaks
Make time to unwind; practice deep breathing and stretching

Stay informed
Missing or inaccurate information can contribute to heightened anxiety or nervousness; Watch/listen/read updates from trusted officials

Seek help
If distress is negatively impacting your daily life, utilize resources available
