Sense of control


( a facebook image)


People lose their sense of control when there is a disaster……..

Help people to use their natural coping mechanisms to regain a sense of control:

–  Get enough rest

–  Eat as regularly as possible and drink water

–  Talk and spend time with family and friends

–  Discuss problems with someone you trust

–  Relax: walk, sing, pray, play with children

–  Exercise

–  Avoid alcohol or drugs, caffeine, nicotine

– Attend to personal hygiene

–  Find safe ways to help others in need.

And live life as  normal as, before the disaster.
