St. Patrick’s Day celebrations can be pretty hectic, and it’s important to remember to check in on yourself during the day.

‘Go home early’ – that’s one of three tips to deal with high anxiety levels during Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations.

National Mental Health Charity ‘Turn2Me’ published the tips ahead of the long weekend, which it says may be some people’s first time in large crowds since lockdown eased.

Other tips are to avoid consuming high levels of alcohol and to practice deep breathing or meditation before joining busy events.

These tips together can help manage and reduce anxiety throughout the day, the group says.
