Tune into a Webcam from Monterey Bay Aquarium

Tune into a Webcam | Monterey Bay Aquarium

Last week's spring break looked much different for us than normal. There was no ocean view, no fun in the sun and definitely no sea creatures.  The Monterey Bay Aquarium can help with that - take a few minutes to explore on webcam!  Be delighted by the antics of their sea otters or mellow out to the hypnotic drifting of their jellies. With ten live cams to choose from, you can experience the wonder of the ocean no matter where you are.

Take a Mindful Moment | Focus on what you can control

So much is happening in the world that is out of our control, but when we face uncertain times, we should focus on what we can control in our own lives. This includes doing what makes you feel safe, which will look different for everyone. Some things you can control to take care of yourself include: Washing your hands, taking your vitamins, practicing social distancing or social isolation, and trying not to touch your face.

Another way you can have some control is by creating a daily routine. Sticking to a schedule can help normalize your day and ensure that there  is some structure. Be sure to allow some downtime each day.

Thanks to the online reource, The Counseling Teacher, for the visual graphic to help you focus on what you can control.
