1. Staying well
By following guidance on social distancing, as well as good hand and respiratory hygiene, you're helping to protect yourself, your family, the NHS and your community.
Now that the lockdown restrictions are easing you may feel excited about the changes, or you may feel less positive and anxious about the new challenges they'll bring.
You can read more about the range of emotions you may be feeling and how you can manage these on the MIND website.
You can also find information on how to look after your mental health and tips on staying well during these uncertain times on the Mental Health Foundation website.
