Do what you can now

To make things better somehow

A big trigger for me

Is when I’ve no power really 😢🙁😔

Or at least that’s what I perceive

Choose gratitude

Distraction 📖📚☕📺

Slow down your pace

If you adore cooking, enjoy the fine tastes 👨🍳👩🍳🥗🥝🍛🍲

Do things that you love within your control

Don’t hand over your power to alcohol ❌

The daily things that stress you

Try to turn them down

Protect your mental space

Only allow certain sounds ✌🙏

Realise as you sit in the chaos around

There IS still some sobrenity to be found


There’s restriction on our daily lives it’s true

But do you want the alcohol thug around you too? 🤯😡

Be sensible, be wise, you know what to do 🤔

The choice is entirely up to you

But before you drink, think 🧠

Stay at home 🏠

Protect your immune system

And let it protect you ❤
