Nothing is more important than the safety, health, and wellbeing of our students and families. To that end, we have compiled some tips, activities, tools, and self-care suggestions from different resources to promote wellness and social emotional health. The unpredictable nature of the pandemic can build so please use these resources as a guide to alleviate stress and anxiety related to COVID-19 for children and adults.
Here are a few tips to help you as we stay-at-home and practice social distancing:
Stay active indoors or outside at a safe distance since exercise helps regulate emotions and behavior
Take walks in your neighborhood keeping 6 feet or more from your neighbors
Move indoors with exercise or dance
Unplug to reduce screen time by reading, working puzzles, playing games
Connect virtually with friends and relatives to remain social
Practice positive self-talk
Offer support to others
Look for the positives
Laugh because laughter builds the immune system
Meditate 10 minutes a day
Stay Virtually Connected
We do wish that we were able to see each other in person on our campus, but until that time arrives, let’s stay connected with others through text, Facetime, phone calls, emails, Zoom, social media, and any other means possible. It is important to acknowledge that we are missing the physical connection we have with others. Social distancing is really physical distancing. We are social beings and need to keep our social connections with others going strong. Even though we are not physically in each other’s presence, we urge all of you to keep in touch virtually with friends and family.
In community somebody hears me, with louder voices to speak… In community we teach each other, from this, we gain our vitality. In community from Sailing to Winward
