In the midst of uncertain times we challenge all of you to find your peace within your family and through the lens of your children. Take this time to strengthen bonds within, and practice social distancing. Social distancing only works if each one of us does our part. If you reside in the South Bay, and need help with groceries, errands, anything at all...please contact us here on our website!! We believe in #humanKIND

Our friends over at Select South Bay   have created a running list of local businesses that need our support now more than ever! In order to slow the progression of this virus, and get back to personal and economic health, we have to #flattenthecurve by staying home! But our local business owners need our help, order take out/delivery if you are comfortable with that. If not, consider purchasing gift cards to use once we can all get back out into the community!

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT THERE IS NO SINGLE RIGHT ANSWER!! WELL THERE IS ONE........LOOK OUT FOR ONE ANOTHER, BE KIND TO YOUR NEIGHBOR, AND CHOOSE COMPASSION!!  


Here are a few helpful resources: 

1. Khan Academy has created schedules to help with distance learning structure. 
2. Metropolitan Opera Streaming. Beginning March 16, the Met will stream a title from its Live in HD series each night through the duration of the closure. (my daughters are excited for this).
3. Scholastic Learn At Home Learning Daily plans/projects. 
5. Educational companies offering free subscriptions. 
6. Family Yoga Classes are a great way to maintain balance and encourage mindful breathing and stretching. 
8. Cooking is one of our favorite things to do.
11. Rolling Robots Education with the fun of robots doesn't have to stop just because school is closed. In fact it's an excellent time to learn more about cutting-edge technology and robotics. With this in mind, Rolling Robots is now delivering online classes with the same great content as our traditional workshops.
12. PE Websites: 
       Pokemon Yoga
13. Broadway Shows Streamed For Free HERE

Most importantly......BE WELL!!!

 

Tips for Staying Well

  • Maintain routines as much as possible.  Try to maintain your typical schedule throughout the day.
  • Practice healthy habits and the kinds of self-care that most benefit you. Prioritize getting a healthy amount of sleep, eating well, and moving or exercising regularly. 
  • Avoid crowds — but stay connected.  Make the effort to stay connected through social media, email, texting, and video calls. 
  • Take breaks to ease your mind and distract yourself when you start to worry. We  have played a number of board games, watching movies (Frozen 2 was released early on Disney+), coloring, playing cards, and walking our dogs.
  • Music is good for the soul. Turn up the volume, close your eyes, and clear your mind. I will be educating my girls with the fact that TIK TOKS are abridged versions of some classics written and performed by popular artists like...The Beatles. 
  • Five steps for effective hand washing.
    1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
    2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
    3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
    4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
    5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
