navigating uncertain times, including covid19

the wisdom of lived experience 

What I realised was important to me during COVID:


Connection, stability and predictability!


Tips, tricks and strategies that help me navigate uncertain times, including COVID:


Maintaining a routine as much as possible! Getting up & almost pretending that it was a normal day. 

Avoiding alcohol. 

Developing a family “gap plan” to help and support each other.


Words that describe my experiences before, during and after COVID:


          Before: Stable | Controllable | OK

                    During: Triggering | Set back | Isolating

                              After: More hard work!


 What decision makers and service providers need to know/do for people living through uncertainty and tough times:



Understand that uncertainty can set people back in many different ways.
