A School Year Unlike Any Other – How Students Can Deal with the “New Norm”

A School Year Unlike Any Other – How Students Can Deal with the “New Norm”

The year 2020 has shaken the entire world. Although we’ve experienced long periods of isolation and social distancing, the coronavirus has actually brought us closer than ever before (from a distance, that is!)

We have learned to appreciate our family and friends that we couldn’t see during the lockdown. We have learned to be more considerate of others, and to appreciate all of the things we readily have available in grocery stores.
One specific sector of the population has been significantly affected by the coronavirus – students. Each state has varying rules and regulations when it comes to whether students should be allowed back to a brick-and-mortar school or whether to be virtual. This has caused some students to go to brick-and-mortar schools and adhere to the new social distancing rules, or be at home and learning – both are huge changes.
So what exactly can students do to deal with the new norm? Here are some essential tips:

Stay positive

Having a positive attitude is imperative during this time. Having a negative mindset has been proven to have a negative affect on physical health, so you’re making yourself more susceptible to COVID-19 and other illnesses. This may seem far-fetched – but it’s true! Mindset is very important in every aspect of life, now more than ever.

Take time for yourself

Take time to detach yourself from school and/or work and relax. Whether that’s having a movie night, cooking up your favorite meal, or doing some at-home exercise; it’s extremely important to do things that uplift you and keep you motivated.

Get some fresh air

It’s important to get fresh air (especially during this time) since it’s proven that staying inside for long periods of time with no fresh air is harmful to our health and our mood. If at all possible, make some time to go outside (whilst following safety guidelines).

Obtain a tutor

Many students are now falling behind due to the huge changes that have taken place this year. The most efficient way to get back up to speed is to obtain a tutor who can provide you with 1-on-1 support.
