• Wellness Support During School Closure

     

    We understand it is a challenging time for you and your family. Your academic, recreational, and social routines are greatly disrupted by the outbreak of COVID-19 which resulted in many school closures across the nation. 

     

    Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family during these uncertain times can help you cope with stress. 

     

    Things you can do to support yourself:

    • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting. Use credible resources like the CDC for good information.

    • Take care of your body. Practice paced breathing or other mindfulness-based breathing exercises, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.

    • Make time to unwind. Do other activities you enjoy.

    • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
