Managing feelings about lockdown easing

Web page

As the UK begins to lift its lockdown, many people are returning to their usual places of work. You may have been furloughed or had to work from home for a long period of time, so it is understandable to have complicated feelings about going back. For example, you might be excited to see your colleagues again, but also worried about the dangers of catching COVID-19 or concerned about returning to a rigid work schedule.

This page from Mind explores what you might be feeling about the lockdown lifting, and offers ways to help you manage these changes. It includes validation of the difficult thoughts and emotions you might experience, links to practical support, and advice on how to focus on the things within your control.

It also includes links to other Mind pages about specific mental health problems you might be having, such as anxiety and depression.
