Not feeling like yourself after a disaster? It can help to talk

It's normal to have strong emotional and physical reactions after a significant event. There is no right or wrong way to feel – people can respond to the same event in very different ways.

Simple strategies can help like:

  • Healthy salad being prepared.

    Eating healthy food and getting enough sleep.

  • Group fitness class.

    Exercising regularly.

  • Young girl having coffee with friend.

    Talking to family and friends.

  • Father and son reading a book.

    Finding time to do something you enjoy each day.
