It’s hard not to feel a little worried or anxious right now. There are a lot of scary stories on the news and social media. Everything seems confused and upside down. Supermarkets are empty, cafes and shops are closed. Everything is different.
At times like this, it is important to take a step back and refocus. At the Wave Project, we try to help young people do this all the time. By focusing on the sea or surfing, they take a step away from the whirlwind of thoughts and worries constantly going through their heads. By supporting each other, our surfers feel reassured.
By setting themselves a challenge, they become more confident. All this helps them deal with a crisis.
We can’t deliver our surf therapy courses at the moment, so instead what we have done is written this short guidebook to help you to be in a more positive mental place at this time of crisis. We have put together some practical tips and resources that may help you cope. To be clear, we are not medical experts and this is not a guidebook about avoiding getting ill. It’s about staying positive and mentally well for the duration of this situation.
