5. Enjoy life’s little pleasures – like flowers and sunrises.

6. Be present in this moment.

7. Breathe, relax, and smile.

When you’re feeling overwhelmed, try to focus your mind on just one thing that will help you to hang on, and also reconnect you with your inner strength. The following questions might help with this:

1. Can you think of one occasion when you felt “it was too much”, and yet you found you coped, and you made it through the day? How did you manage to keep going at that time? How can you apply that to what’s happening right now?
