This is for senior school-
  • Make a routine for yourself which includes fixed timings for each activity and make sure you follow that routine.
  • Have a fixed food and sleep routine. It is important to maintain a scheduled lifestyle during such times of uncertainty. During such times when it’s chaotic all around and life is unpredictable, consistency in our lifestyle is the one certain thing that can help in keeping us calm.
  • Make sure your day is filled with a variety of tasks which include your hobbies as well as time for study (if you have the materials)
  • You can engage in household chores if you are in the space to. This is also a way of connecting with your parents.
  • Children in the higher classes including 9-12, can use this time to ponder over their career. Do some research, contact those who might help and look inward to understand what is your calling.
  • Allot timings for each task and spread the tasks evenly throughout the day. For instance: an hour of reading, an hour of paint/drawing/sing/dance, and so on and so forth. Again, make sure your routine isn’t mundane, since that, will lead to fatigue and boredom.
  • Indulge yourself in at least 20 minutes of physical exercise daily.
  • LIMIT your social media usage.
  • Give yourself the space to connect with yourself and be aware of how you are feeling. Maintain a journal/dairy or just engage in 10 minutes of mindfulness activity daily. Something as simple as a breathing exercise also helps.
  • Avoid going through WhatsApp forwards and other false information about the virus. If need be, check the WHO official website and educate yourself with the authentic information that is needed. Do not get consumed by the news of this virus.
  • Remember: feeling lonely, lost and frustrated is very normal during such times. Do not beat yourself up about it. We may have to be physically distanced but it doesn’t mean we have to be emotionally distanced. Connect with those at home and if you cannot, connect with with yourself and connect with others over call.
  • Lastly, DO NOT pressurise yourself on being mega productive if you aren’t able to. This is not a suitable time to do so, hence it is not expected of you to behave like it is. But yes, be mindful of what you are doing and work with an intention.

This is for Junior school -
  • Create a schedule/routine and make the child follow it, just like she followed while school was on.
  • Make sure to stick to the routine. Keep a particular time slot for each activity in your day.
  • Sleep and food time should be followed strictly as much as possible.
  • Make sure the routine has a variety of tasks and not just one. Having no variety in tasks makes the routine mundane and difficult to follow, leading to boredom and exhaustion.
  • The routine may consist of hour long activities including- drawing, painting, reading books, some studies too (if material is there), and others (whatever the child is interested in). Make sure these activities are spread out evenly. Doing the same activity continuously will also lead to boredom.
  • If the child is into reading books, maybe you could ask the child to tell you the story that she read about.
  • Involve the children in household chores, and make sure to spend time with them.
  • If possible, encourage the child to do at least 20 minutes of indoor-physical exercise like skipping, spot-jogging, jumping-jacks, and yoga.
  • Keep your child updated on the authentic news and keep them away from wrong/false information (eg: WhatsApp forwards)
  • Make sure they understand what is going on. Be there to reassure them of their worries from time to time. Not knowing what is going on often leads to more anxiety and worry.
  • Connect with your child and make sure they know that they know can approach you with their problems if they need to. It is normal to feel lonely during such crisis so this is a way to make sure the child doesn’t feel lonely.
