How to Help Your Student Succeed at Remote Learning

Students dealing with loss of important rites of passage

Self Care For All:

  • Reach out and talk. Be open with a trusted friend, advisor, resident assistant, mental or spiritual advisor about what you’ve experienced. Get extra support.
  • Get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation makes things worse. Sleeping on a consistent routine is important. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and non-prescription drugs, which can make it harder to rest and sleep.
  • Practice relaxation. Activities like deep breathing, yoga, and meditation can be beneficial. Use WellTrack ( to help you.
  • Keep a routine. If you can, it is beneficial to keep a routine. Eat, sleep, and exercise on a regular schedule.
  • Reduce stress. Eliminate or reduce unnecessary obligations, even if temporarily. A break can be really helpful.
