Tips for Maintaining Mental Health and
Well-Being During this Stay at Home/Remote Learning Time

 

KEEP A CONSISTENT SCHEDULE AND ROUTINE

It is important to maintain consistency during these times.  Having a set schedule - wake up time, eating breakfast, getting ready for class, attending class, completing activities after online class, and maintaining the same bedtime.
 
GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Sleep is essential for physical and emotional well-being.  It is recommended that 6 to 12 year olds get 9 to 12 hours of sleep and teenagers get 8 to 10 hours of sleep.
 
LIMIT EXPOSURE
Limit how much information your children are seeing and hearing about COVID-19
 
GET OUTSIDE
Vitamin D is very important for your mood.  When outside, please practice good social distancing!
 
PARTICIPATE IN DAILY EXERCISE
Physical activity is an essential stress reliever for people of all ages.
 
TALK IT OUT
Encourage your children to talk about the stress they may be feeling and help them to process this uncertain time.
 
STAY SOCIAL
Use the gift of technology to stay in communication with your loved ones.  Play board games or do projects together over FaceTime or Skype.
 
MAKE TIME FOR FUN OFF SCREEN
Take time away from your computer.  Engage in at least 2 hours of activities that do not involve a screen.
 
WRITE ABOUT IT!
Research has found that expressing oneself in writing (or drawing for younger children) can help reduce mental distress and improve well-being.
