ARE YOU READY?
The reopening of the schools is near bringing overwhelming pressure to teachers, parents and students alike who face stress and anxiety from the uncertainties and varying approaches around the coronavirus pandemic in the new school year.
While teachers debate their concerns about their own health, their students' wellbeing and the expectations that are mounting on them to lead both classroom and online education; parents wonder if they’ll have enough time and capacity to help their children learn online, how to line up child care or transportation - all of which are a stressful juggling act.
WHAT IS RESILIENCE?
It’s what gives us the energy and the ability to bounce back from or respond to challenging situations appropriately rather than letting stress overwhelm us and damage our health, capacity, decisions or communication.
"BEING RESILIENT IS LIKE LEARNING TO RIDE THE WAVES"
Living with the intention for a stronger mind and healthier body, having a toolset of techniques to use when facing challenges are crucial in this unprecedented time of our lives. Worry and fear can be debilitating, preventing us from thinking clear or to operate to our best capacity.
Schools and organizations need to provide much needed support to enable better performance, effective communication and more composure in challenging moments. Teachers, students and working parents are all affected and that makes up a large part of our community.
