Coping with Long Covid

Here you’ll find all the worksheets and information you need to put into practice what you’ve learned in our Coping with Long Covid class.

What we learned

How our thoughts, feelings and actions are linked.

5 Areas

We introduced the "5 Areas" model from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This shows the links between what we think, how we feel both emotionally and physically, and what we do.

Although we can’t just change how we feel, we can use these links to improve how we feel by changing what we do or the way we think.

 

Alarming Adrenaline

We explored the role of adrenaline in our body, and the physical symptoms it can create as part of the 'fight or flight' response.

Resources: 

 

Relaxation Techniques

We looked at how relaxation techniques can help us to manage and reduce the physical symptoms of 'fight or flight'.

Resources:

 

Activity Diary

We explored the vicious cycle of fatigue, and how to find the best balance between rest and activity. 

Resources:

  • The Activity Diary worksheet can help you to notice patterns of activity or inactivity. Keep a note of what you do, and how you feel. 
  • Conserving Energy A guide to the 3Ps: Plan, Pace and Prioritise from the Royal College of Occupational Therapists
