In a nutshell,

a) Accept / acknowlegde that this of situation as part of life (sh*t happens)

b) Selectional attention – focus on things you can change and on positive things (e.g. name three things you are grateful for, everyday)

c) Take control over the situation and be kind to yourself – most powerful / useful tool (ask yourself if what you are doing now is helping or harming you?)
