Lockdown webinar series - 1 How to de-stress and relax during lockdown

This webinar took place on Friday 17 April 2020, from 12-12.30pm BST.

The aim of the webinar was to help people improve their ability to cope with the additional stressors of lockdown by learning some simple cognitive-behavioural techniques.

Participants learned how to improve their activity planning and time management; prioritise tasks more effectively; challenge unhelpful thinking patterns; accept what they can't control; and develop relaxation skills. These techniques were provided to help lower stress levels and elevate mood during this unfamiliar time.
