Transitioning Back to School During COVID:
Going back to school will be different this year so let's get through it together.
During the time of transition, it is important to keep a strong healthy mind about making goals,choices, and planning for the school year. Here Are some tips for transitioning back to school:
- Remember, mask etiquette and proper hygiene keeps you and everyone around you safe.
- Establish a quiet space for you to engage innew hobbies, learn about new things, or to just focus on your school work.
- Practice getting back to a regular sleep schedule. With new routines due toCOVID, it is easy to practice poor sleeping habits like getting to bed later and waking up even later in the morning. Start Incrementally going to bed earlier and follow a consistent bedtime routine to get your best rest!
- And remember, we are all in this together.Talk about it and reduce any potential astigmatisms or stereotypes and ensure compassion within your friends and family group and beyond!
New Year’s Resolutions
Making a New Year's resolution is a marvelous idea, as it means you are taking time to evaluate yourself in the ‘now’ and your life over the past year to discover what you would like to see change during the next year. When making a resolution remember that the important part is to keep it simple and achievable. Also, don't forget to make mental health goals like simply checking in by taking a screening or learning new ways on how to manage your stress. See below for some resources that are available to you!
