Coping in a Pandemic: Three Strategies for Setting Mental Health Boundaries on Technology

By Michaela Eskew

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many children and youth to experience mental health problems including anxiety, stress, and depression. This 3-part podcast series includes three coping strategies for combating the technology overload we have all experienced in this pandemic.  Connection, Focus, and Rest are three things we may feel like we were always lacking but this pandemic has only put a greater spotlight on their necessity for proper mental health. Using the book The New Adolescence: Raising Happy and Successful Teens in an Age of Anxiety and Distraction by Christine Carter, PhD, this series helps with practical strategies for giving ourselves grace and proper mental health boundaries in this pandemic.

For those parents out there, there is a special fourth podcast just for you! If you are wondering, “How do I possibly get my kids to listen to these podcasts or even implement these strategies?” this podcast is for you! It’s a bit longer than the strategy podcasts, but it uses Christine Carter’s amazing book to provide solid research for what is stressing teens today (trust me its more than you handled as a teenager) and how to work with them to alleviate those stressors.

I hope these podcasts will be a resource for all that feel fatigued by technology and it is something you can come back to again and again as you need.
