Be Well Tips

School Closure or Self-isolation: Advice for Teenage Students

The school closure might make you feel worried, uncertain, nervous – or you might be excited about the possibility of not being at school.

All these emotions are totally natural. We can use this situation to help us become more resilient: keep the following tips in mind to help you get the most out of a difficult experience. 

Talking to your kid about Coronavirus

The fast-moving developments and intensive news coverage in relation to coronavirus can be challenging for parents.

The following tips for parents compiled by our Cognita Education and Wellbeing Team are designed to help when discussing the issue with your child.

Maintaining Wellbeing During School Closures

These are uncertain times as a parent. As well as not being able to tell your child what is or isn’t going to happen in the coming weeks, you will also need to oversee their learning at home.

It is natural that you may feel anxious about this, but some of these tips may be helpful.

Sleep during Covid-19

The Covid-19 Pandemic is an extreme and global crisis,
which is hugely demanding on our physical and mental
health. Now, more than ever, we should think about why
and how sleep plays such a critical part in improving our
health.

They are great fun and will help release the pressure of these days!
