Ailsa suggests that these techniques can be applied to any concerns people may have about the virus.

1.Take control of your thoughts. Visualise a red triangle in your mind and imagine putting your problems, health worries, anxiety and even the Coronavirus into the shape, then shrink it down in your mind. By reducing the image in your mind, you will break the habit of worrying.

2.Write down a plan of how you can minimise your exposure to the virus, such as avoiding heavily crowded places, mixing with people from affected areas and washing hands regularly. By writing a list, this will help you to feel more in control of the situation and it will also give you a clear plan in your mind, so you action sensible routines.

3.Visualise yourself fit and healthy. By seeing a positive image of yourself in your mind it will stop you from worrying. What we see in our minds we become, so you are more likely to behave in a way that will keep you safe.

4.One of the biggest challenges for people is that if they have to self- isolate this will mean that their income may be affected. Think of three things to help your finances by taking control of your spending or increasing income. By getting into a mindset of boosting your finances you will be better off now and once the Coronavirus passes. If you are financially vulnerable, use this time to make a pact with yourself to find a way to become financially secure in the future.
