Governor Raimondo said in her latest briefing  today (3/24/20) a lot of children along with adults have been reaching out with concerns and anxieties about the situation. 

Raimondo says "tensions are rising, there is no way around that."

It's perfectly normal and okay to feel anxious! You absolutely are not alone! We don't want to see you all feeling very anxious when we have the platform to keep you informed and give you advice! Although there is no way to completely eliminate your anxieties, we want to provide you with some solutions!

Create a daily schedule 

Creating a structure to each day can go a long way with reducing stress! Especially if you have kids at home while you're working from home. Have a set "wake up time" for everyone (if you don't already). Make times for work and school. Then meals, exercise and chores! (no excuse to not get them done if they're home ;) 

Pick up a new hobby! (or pick back up your old ones)

This will help keep your mind busy. Take breaks from working to crochet, color, draw, bake, cook.... there's no limit!! 

Be sure you're limiting your media consumption 

This can cause you more stress and anxiety. While it's good to stay up to date, consuming too much isn't great for you! Think of it like eating... you get full after consuming too much food... same goes for your brain when you're watching or reading too much news and social media. 

Maybe check once in the morning and once at night. And when you are reading or watching news, be sure it's not only bad news, read some good stuff! Like this! 


While the gyms are closed, there are tons of workouts and yoga tutorials you can follow to keep in shape while you're home! Exercise is a great stress reliever!

Video calls

Practicing social distancing might mean you aren't seeing family members and friends. Set up daily or weekly video chat calls with them to stay in contact! 

Instead of just focusing on the negatives, try to remind yourself that you will get through this and it will work out! 

We only want the best for you all! :)
