Self-Care Activities 
while e-Learning


Create a routine for your day-  Continue your daily habits and create a structure for what your day will look like when you’re working from home. Do you have siblings or family members also at home with you—work out a system so everyone can work together.

Set designated school hours- It’s easy to get distracted when working from home. Set specific times that are designated for your classes each day and then make sure your phone and social media is turned off during these times.

Have a designated workspace- Having a place that is specifically for your classwork will send signals to your brain that it’s time to work on assignments when there and then time to end assignments when you leave that area. Make sure you have everything you need when you enter your workspace, i.e. water, pens, highlighters, etc…

Take breaks during the day- Set specific times in your routine to step away from your assignments. Go for a walk, eat lunch, or just get up and stretch.

Reach out to your teachers- Make sure you know your teacher’s expectations for each class. You’re encouraged to work on each class for at least 60 minutes every day for a total of 4 hours. Your teachers will have “office hours” Monday-Friday from 11am-1pm.

Connect- Reach out to a friend and talk with them about non-related school activities. Connect with your family members and play a game, cook together, or go on a walk. In this time of uncertainty it’s important to lean on the people closest to us.
