Be patient with yourselves and others, especially during these times of transition.

  • Things will change during the upcoming weeks. Be flexible and try to remain empathetic, as everyone is struggling in their own ways during these uncertain times.

Practice good sleeping habits!

  • Sleep is so incredibly important for all human functions, but it plays specific roles in consolidating memories (helping you remember information).
  • Try going to bed and getting up at the same time every day.
  • Avoid using technology before bed; the light from devices affect your brain’s ability to “shut off.”
  • Limit caffeine, alcohol consumption, nicotine, and large meals at night.
