2. Keep your sense of humour – vital!

4. Don’t ever become complacent – keep on top of things

5. Tomorrow is a new beginning – even if today has been a challenge

6. It’s not personal – behaviour is not about you

7. Ask for help and advice – it will be there

8. Look after yourself

9. Get support if you need it

10. Attend practice meetings and training – it helps you to both learn and share with others.
