Sticking to your daily routines is something that will keep you feeling safe and healthy as it is something your body has become used to. For example, taking breaks at normal school times, eating on a regular schedule (breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, etc.) and exercising or relaxing (in a different space, such as outside) during your breaks are all routines you have gotten into. Keeping these things consistent will lessen your feelings of change. You can use your school timetable to help with this, continue waking up at the same times so that your meals times don’t change and brush your teeth at the normal times also!
