Dear Ms. Advice,

School has been a strain on me this year with all the new changes. How do I adapt to this?

Sincerely,

Dear Steven Lock,

This year has been a circus. Take it one day at a time. This is new for everyone and we are all still learning. Teachers are understanding of the added strain this can cause students. It’s a strain on everyone right now. Between rules and major changes, it can be chaotic. Take short breaks to step back and breath. This new environment is going to take some more getting used to. Try writing what you need to do down, make a list of tasks, set aside a short time to clear your mind and de-stress. If your stress becomes too overwhelming, talk to a counselor or therapist. You don’t have to go through it alone.

Sincerely

Ms. Advice
