Tools for Living in Crisis

  • Our brains crave order, so set up your daily and weekly routine
  • It’s important that weekend activities look different from your weekdays
  • Our brains need hope that in the future things can be OK
  • Vulnerability is key for stress reduction - identify the vulnerability, ask for presence, focus on taking it in
  • Four things to keep in mind - be present with one another; deliver hope, affirmation, belief in each other, and belief in God; offer perspective; be practical and take action
