The restorative power of normal routines

A summary of the main points of almost all expert texts on the topic of dealing with anxiety after a traumatic event always shows that resuming normal routines is a powerful healer.

After a week of dealing with our own families' needs, our damaged homes and caring for others in our neighbourhoods it felt so good today to to sit down to lunch with our whole staff and kick off the process for a return to a normal school week this coming Monday.

Seeing the positive impact on our team caused by finally getting back to work today fills me with hope for the great impact a return to school will have on our children next week.
