If we were working from home, it was welcomed. Now we have to really realize that work is intrusive because it welcomed itself in with COVID-19. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
It’s important for parents to first just take a mental check of that... okay…this is new and I need to adjust to this. But I also need to check that my surroundings will represent that adjustment. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
This is intrusive and it's okay to understand that and really look at how you can calm those spaces and really look at where you want to work in your home. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
Calm has done an excellent job at creating several different options for individuals based on what they like to do. There’s a meditation piece to that. There’s also these beautiful sounds of relaxation. There’s breathing exercises that I would definitely recommend. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
The Calm app is definitely one that I would recommend. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
Sleep is the most important part of this right now. Sleep is a part of a healthy mental status, a healthy appetite and feeling rested. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
Your mental health plays a part in adjusting to understand an intrusive space from your work or a welcomed space from your work. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
During this intrusive period, we’re holding our breath more. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
Sleep is tied to good decision making and strategic decision making. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
It takes two weeks to create a bad habit. It take 30 days to create a good habit. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
It’s really important to continue the routines we had prior to this situation. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
Emotional intelligence is a framework set up of five competencies total. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
We’re leaders in our personal space, our professional space as well as our social spaces. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
We need to start looking at how do we create good habits? Sleep is one of those good habits, meaning go to bed at a regular time every day. Don’t get caught up in the television. Set aside a time for that. @DrKarenExeCoach @LIOVirtualParentSummit
