Self-Care During Distance Learning

Set up a daily routine

This can provide some much-needed structure to your days. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. Create a routine that works for you.


Pick up a hobby

If your schedule permits it, engaging in a new hobby like reading, knitting, playing fun board games, or cooking can act as a great stress-buster.


Eat healthy, well-balanced meals

This is a good time to try new recipes and get creative with your cooking. Maintaining regular meal times is also helpful for your health and general well-being.


Stay connected

Humans are social creatures and engaging with others is really important for our emotional health. Apart from phone and video calls, online hobby classes and social media can also help you stay in touch.


Practice Gratitude

It is easy to get overwhelmed by all the worrying news surrounding us. Create a little time during the day to focus on the positives in your life, through journaling or simple reflection.


Make time to disconnect

Make some time during the day to disengage from the news and other activities. Use this time to rest and recover your energy.
