How Neurofeedback Could Help Students and Adults Go Virtual During the Pandemic
This pandemic is a time of uncertainty for all of us. Many of our lives and our children that are students might look a lot different than they did before. Maybe you’re working virtually, while your children are still trying to complete virtual school. No matter what, there are a lot of new adjustments that come with this pandemic.
It’s no secret that COVID-19 is causing many people to feel anxious. How long will this last? When are my kids going to see their friends in a normal way? Is it going to get easier for them to learn online? Many researchers are saying that 3 out of 10 parents report that their kids are struggling with a mental illness. (1)
Many homes are struggling so much financially that they are worried if they can feed their family. A lot of teachers understand what is going on in a certain student’s home life, but they cannot necessarily treat them any differently than their other students. Many schools are working on setting expectations for the coming year and focusing more on mental health. Researchers are finding out that students do better when they’re taught how to manage their emotions properly. (1)
Life of a Virtual Student
While more students are still completely virtual for school, their lifestyles are more and more inactive. (2) They’re turning to their phones and video games to be social and to waste their time away.
Students are supposed to have a lot of self-control during online school. Usually, parts of a child’s brain, like self-control, haven’t fully developed yet. For a lot of kids, school is the only place to see their friends and be social. Now, they’re forced to connect through their phones. (4)

More people, especially women, are reporting having disturbing dreams. It has been studied before that dreams can involve worries that may have sprung up from issues during the day.
