Coffee on Desk

Please find free printable routine cards below to help you and your loved ones adjust to this new normal. Establishing a routine will provide young ones/everyone with expectations and defined roles of participation which will reduce anxiety. These are basic building blocks for your day, so please customize away and be flexible. Print, cut out, choose a few to place on the wall or fridge and try it out!


Take a deep breath.

Be gracious to yourself and to others. Everyone has been disrupted and is a little scared, but we all are in this together.

With Love,

Alyssa Cruz-Lockner, LMFT

Sit in the sun for 5 minutes every day and try to keep the same schedule the sun does--don't go nocturnal.  Be flexible, there aren't times on the cards for a reason.  Don't demand 2 hours of school from your child or yourself if that is not flowing today, just move on to the next thing on the schedule.  Cuddle, cuddle, cuddle --we all need hugs, affection and comfort and we will need extra when dealing with anxiety and uncertainties at a time like this.
