Well-Being in Isolation Social Story


This social story reviews ways to cope with isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Picture of months on a calendar

The pandemic has lasted longer than I thought it would.

People are still social distancing.

This sometimes makes me feel lonely, especially around the holidays and special occasions.

I can do things each day to help me feel good:

I can take care of my body by taking a shower, taking my medicine or vitamins and drinking water.

I can clean one thing/space in my house like a room or a closet.

I can take care of something that grows or lives with me, like a plant or a pet.

I can pay attention to the things around me that I hear, feel and see.

I can connect with someone who doesn’t live with me by text, email, phone call or video chat

I can take a walk, go for a jog, dance, or do anything that gets me moving!

I can watch a funny show or movie or tell a funny story to a friend or family member.

If I try to do two or three of these things each day, it can help me feel better when I have to stay home.
