Making yourself feel good - to help what you are doing day to day  

There are things you can do to make yourself feel better. It is OK to laugh and enjoy yourself, even when things are difficult and different. 

You could try:

  • Getting in touch with someone who makes you smile and staying connected.
  • Doing something that helps you laugh and distracts you, and sharing ideas with others.  
  • Challenging yourself or finding something that absorbs you, this may be learning a new hobby or finishing something you have been meaning to get done around your home. 
  • Practicing positive thinking. Each day try to notice three things that have gone OK, big or small. You can do this as a family and keep a journal. Get some tips from the Action for Happiness website.
  • Helping others by volunteering from home - you can find opportunities on Volunteering Wales
