As families maintain social distancing and continue online school, work, and play at home, here are some suggestions for helping your family de-stress and thrive: 

Stay connected and active:

Manage family stress:

  • Take care of yourself first, breathe, go for walks, identify what works for you. Read more from Common Sense Media.

  • Limit watching the news and seek out resources for talking with children about COVID-19. Read more on Childmind.org.

  • Give yourself and your family permission to feel and permission to relax.

  • Yoga resource for families: Yoga4Classrooms.

  • Mindfulness resource for families: Mindfulschools.org.

  • Consider the image of a palm tree, bending from high winds, and then returns to standing tall once the storm has passed.      

For additional support, please feel free to contact me at rginnetti@csov.org.
