SELF-CARE DURING STRESSFUL TIMES - for youth AND adults!

  • Exercise. Go for a walk outside - bundle up if you have to.

  • Have a dance party with your family!

  • Listen to music - or make music if that’s your jam.

  • Color. Even adults can color.

  • Call a friend and catch up!

  • Get good rest! Keep a solid routine, even with school and work changes.

  • Drink lots of water!

  • If you feel worried or stressed talk to someone about your feelings. Don’t keep it bottled up.
