Taking care of your emotional health is critical especially when faced with the difficult circumstances we are now experiencing. Being away from the structure and familiarity of your routines, like being at school and around your friends, can feel overwhelming at times. We know social distancing is good for our community, but it can be tough emotionally so we hope that this information can help you and your family as we all navigate the effects of the pandemic. It is important to be reasonable with yourself and to take steps to help support your emotional well-being.
Every day, try to accomplish 3 things:

- Something for your family
Doing these will help you to know that you have accomplished something every day.
