Social-Emotional Wellness for Your Student, Yourself, and Others Thoughts and Suggestions from your School Social Worker and Psychologist
We understand that it is a stressful and uncertain time for both children and caregivers. It’s important to care for yourself and maintain healthy habits in the home. Eating good food, sleeping well, and taking time to relax are all essential to protect your physical and mental health. Research shows that maintaining these routines helps to reduce feelings of anxiety and depression that may heighten during crises. To further promote well-being, we would also suggest taking some time to unplug from phones, tablets, devices, etc. while at home. Consider turning the television off and/or taking a break from news and media, and simply spend time together with your family. Play games, tell stories, read books, talk about feelings, and listen to
one another; anything that helps you connect with loved ones during this time is important.
