From California PTA: Healthy Habits

Staying physically active and eating right while in lockdown mode is essential to getting through it. The following resources offer a road map to eating well and getting enough exercise in the less-than-ideal conditions we all find ourselves in right now:

From California PTA: SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING

Here are a few things to keep in mind during this time of social distancing:

  • Children take their cues from the adults around them, so it is important to remain calm and talk to them about what is going on in an age appropriate way. Children become anxious when the adults around them are anxious.
  • Experts say children feel better when they have some control over what is going on. By letting them choose what they eat, wear, read and watch on TV, you are helping to keep them calm and confident.
  • Spend some time outside running, walking or bike riding to get fresh air, burn off excess energy, and keep “cabin fever” at bay. Just remember to stay a safe distance from passers-by.

These insightful articles gathered by National PTA can help families alleviate the mental and physical stress they are likely experiencing right now:
