    SELF CARE

    As students are preparing to transition to online learning following school closures – either temporarily or for the foreseeable future – due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact can at times go beyond academics: we need to be aware of and prepared take care of ourselves, and the ones around us. Here are some simple tips for staying well!  

     Tips for Staying Well

    • Maintain routines as much as possible. Even though you will be participating through online/distance learning temporarily, try to maintain your typical schedule throughout the day (regular sleep schedule, eating, exercise, and school work times).
    • Practice healthy habits and the kinds of self-care that most benefit you. Prioritize getting a healthy amount of sleep, eating well, avoiding alcohol and other substances, and moving or exercising regularly. 
    • Avoid crowds — but stay connected.  School closures can mean you might find yourself distanced from the people you would normally see. Although you may want to spend time with friends, public health recommendations are advising to limit in-person contact. Stay connected through other means, such as texting, video calls, and social media – sending positive, and supportive messages!
    • Seek news only from reliable sources, and only in short stints. As with all things, we can find ourselves over-consuming news and updates. Try not to become absorbed in the coverage for long periods of time, and find opportunities to appropriately disconnect. The most reliable, updated resource the district follows would be the Center for Disease Control (CDC) who provide daily updates: CDC.gov.
    • Take breaks to ease your mind and distract yourself when you start to worry. Play a game. Start a new hobby, or resume one you haven’t had time for in a while. Exercise. Take the dog for a walk. Reconnect with your family. Read a book. Do a puzzle. Watch a movie. Practice yoga. Try a meditation app. For more coping skills, check out the links on the right side of the page. 

    While COVID-19 is bringing new challenges to so many, remember to take care of yourself and loved ones, and maintain a balanced and positive outlook!!

    Stay strong, stay healthy, stay positive, and stay home -- we are in this together!
