The last few weeks have been difficult for many people in the UK. The debate, outcome and uncertainty following the UK’s EU referendum has heightened people’s emotions and left some feeling sad and many feeling confused. Unfortunately the “yes-no” character of the referendum tended to polarise discussion. There was no box on the form for “yes if”, “no but I’d rather…”, “it depends” or let alone “I’m not sure”. Nuanced or caveated answers were ruled out; but it’s important to now make space for open, respectful discussion, and also to maintain a caring and kind approach towards each other. As the situation continues to unfold, this post simply offers a few suggestions on taking care of your own and others’ wellbeing at what is an uncertain time for us all.
