Balance and Routine during Remote Learning

Following are some tips on how to add some structure and balance to your day:

Have a dedicated space

This can be difficult when family members are at home. Try to pick an area that has good lighting, has comfortable furniture and is away from distractions such as TV, music, etc.

Mentally prepare for the start of the day

Set a morning routine (maybe use an alarm to wake up at the same time).  Try not start the workday in pyjamas; instead, shower and dress for the day.  And have breakfast!

Take regular breaks

Study blocks should allow for regular breaks to help prevent study-fatigue and keep you focussed.  Go for a quick walk, connect with friends and family or have a snack.  Breaks such as these help to refresh your mind and will help you to maintain your attention and motivation.

Exercise

Try and get some physical exercise daily.  A great form of exercise during this time is Yoga or Pilates: it can be done anywhere as it doesn’t require much space.

Eat healthy meals and snacks

When working or studying from home we need to remember to “Feed our Brain.”  Eating a healthy diet from the five food groups – together with drinking enough water – is an excellent start.  Having healthy snacks on hand to grab quickly such as a tub of yoghurt, a tin of tuna or a handful of nuts or berries is a great idea.

Switch off at the end of the day 

Just like at the start of the day, find an activity that signals the end of the workday; even try and take a “Tech Break”.

Sleep

According to the Sleep Health Foundation, teenagers need between 8-10 hours of sleep a night.  Have an evening routine, try a warm shower or bath, have a warm drink or try some meditation or mindfulness exercises.
