Hey parents! We see you.
We see you working hard to homeschool your kids while also balancing working from home and your own anxiety about what’s going on, and we know you’re exhausted!
This is a stressful and unpredictable time for everyone, parents and children. You’re trying hard to give your children routine and stability during this time, but remember to give yourself grace in this too! Just like your kids may be struggling to cope with a change in plans and schooling, your life may have drastically changed as well.
Here is one thing you can do to stay sane during quarantine:
Move your body!
- Get outside
- Go for a walk or a bike ride
- Sit on your porch
- Run around the backyard
- Stretch your legs by going for a simple walk around the block
Even if it is just for 10 minutes, movement and getting fresh air will help both you and your child’s mental health and anxiety.
We know this is a hard adjustment with many unknowns still, so if you’re looking for extra support, we provide online counseling. It’s safe and convenient for you. Reach out to us today and we can help!
