you can add collaborators to Trello (maybe your supervisor) - can help keep you accountable!

tip to stay on task: write your to-do list on paper. it's tangible and will be right in front of you, and it will reduce screen time

00:51:28Cheyanne Clouse

Overwhelmed with emails!! I am not a huge technology person, so communicating via email, GM, and texts is overwhelming!

I’ve been asking my parents to teach me new recipes to cook!

01:01:43Katie Haarmann

I have added time in my day to actually meditate or have a mindful moment to myself (away from screens and distractions) to prevent or reset from sensory overload (it may seem like one more thing to add to your list of to dos but it can be helpful)

My little siblings have been doing their schooling from home so its hard to get stuff to load all at the same time on the wifi so we have been spacing stuff out for that reason.

01:07:57Kate Nail

Does anyone have much younger siblings at home? How is that going

01:08:03Rebekah Simmons

Same! My parents back in Texas wanted me to stay in Nebraska, but we FaceTime everyday to stay in contact and have a “new normal”

01:08:56Catherine Raczyk

i have a high school aged brother and its difficult when we both have to be quiet during each others zoom classes

01:09:48Becky Stolpa

I stayed at my apartment at school so I could stay focused easier, but I live across from a fire department so I always have the fire trucks going off during my meetings which is a challenge!

01:09:56Catherine Raczyk

its very difficult

01:09:59Kate Nail

She means you Carol

01:10:03Brie Krug

I have a three year old brother! Also 20 years difference. He is super understanding that about when I go into my room, it is time for me to do work or school. And I always tell him I'll be back at lunch

01:10:05Alyssa Day

My siblings are 10 and 14 and they want me to answer a lot of school questions for them so its hard to focus on my own school work and trying to figure out 4th grade math lol
