Each week we will be sharing a tip from our school psychologist, Mrs. Rollins.

Summer Mental Health

For some kids they cannot wait for summer, doing nothing, and sleeping in. For some of our students, the lack of structure or access to peers can be tough on their mental health. Here are a few ideas with embedded links to ideas that can help our students stay mentally healthy.

Create a predictable schedule by having consistent bedtimes and wake-ups, having an activity for specific days to look forward to, and coordinating play dates with friends.

Take part in fun free summer activities.

Enjoy time outside and soak up some vitamin D. Vitamin D is vital to your mental health and is absorbed through getting outside and playing. Some screen time can be good to mix it up, but there are literally 100 things your kids could do outside.

Find balance by planning with your kids to have times for big activities/trips, small outdoor activities at home, some screen time, board games, reading, cooking together, watching movies together, and some time to do nothing.

Happy Summer Everyone!

Consejo psicológico de la semana

Cada semana compartiremos un consejo de nuestra psicóloga escolar, la Sra. Rollins.

Salud mental en verano

Para algunos niños no pueden esperar el verano, sin hacer nada y durmiendo en. Para algunos de nuestros estudiantes la falta de estructura o de acceso a los compañeros puede ser dura para su salud mental. Aquí hay algunas ideas con enlaces incrustados a ideas que pueden ayudar a nuestros estudiantes a mantenerse mentalmente saludables.

Cree un horario predecible teniendo horas de acostarse y levantarse consistentes, teniendo una actividad para días específicos para esperar, y coordinando citas de juego con amigos.

Participar en divertidas actividades de verano gratuitas.

Disfrute del tiempo al aire libre y absorba algo de vitamina D. La vitamina D es vital para su salud mental y se absorbe al salir al exterior y jugar. Un poco de tiempo de pantalla puede ser bueno para mezclar, pero hay literalmente 100 cosas que sus hijos podrían hacer fuera.

Encuentra el equilibrio planificando con tus hijos momentos para grandes actividades/excursiones, pequeñas actividades al aire libre en casa, algo de tiempo de pantalla, juegos de mesa, lectura, cocinar juntos, ver películas juntos y algo de tiempo para no hacer nada.

¡Feliz verano a todos!
