Monday Message

Hello, iLEAD learners!

We hope you all “sharpened the saw” while enjoying your Fall Break the week before last. We wanted to remind you all of some good habits to keep in mind. A good habit to remember is Habit #1: Be Proactive. This habit allows you to start thinking with the end in mind, which is Habit #2, by taking proactive steps to ensure you are creating a sustainable routine/schedule and making sure it includes the following:

  • brain breaks
  • lunch breaks (please eat something)
  • movement

Whether you are reestablishing a routine or just now establishing one, getting started can feel overwhelming, but rest assured your school counselors are here to support. You can always reach out to us to schedule appointments for tips and tricks to stay ahead of distance learning.

One easy way to kick off a routine is to set a regular bedtime and morning routine. It doesn’t have to be boring! Make it fun by doing some mindfulness after brushing your teeth and washing your face. Mindfulness can mean something different to everyone. Some examples:

  • listening to calming music
  • journaling
  • meditation
  • watching some comedy (laughing releases endorphins to help our bodies relax)
  • reading a book

Another way to ensure you’re being proactive is by preparing for school before bedtime. Put away all your school items in the same place every night, making sure all materials are ready, pencils are sharpened if you’re using them, and computers are charged and ready for the next day.

You all are rocking this distance learning! Let’s continue to do great and, as always, reach out to your facilitators, staff, school counselors, or parents for help when needed. You are not in this alone. We are in this together!
