Under prolonged stress, both adults and children become cognitively exhausted.

The All-Ukrainian Mental Health Program “How are you?” initiated by Olena Zelenska tells how to prevent this phenomenon in yourself and your child:

– break down daily tasks into stages with breaks for rest;

– take more frequent breaks, go for short walks, breathe the air, and get away from chats and news;

– after a sleepless night, try to find 10-20 minutes during the day to sit with closed eyes;

– remember to eat and drink water regularly.

Engaging in physical activity, meditation, creative expression, or counseling with a psychologist can also be helpful.

Also, find an activity that brings happiness to you and your child. Keep in mind that joy generates energy.
