At this point in time, it has become apparent that the shift to virtual learning is necessary to the educational system. This is both beneficial and detrimental to learning. In fact, studies revealed that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges to students, educators, and parents. So far, researches show that virtual learning poses threat to mental, emotional, social, physical and functional health and wellbeing of both young and adult learners. Thus, experts in the fields of education and psychology incorporated various coping strategies, resources, and lessons on mindfulness, brain breaks, health and fitness breaks. Studies indicate that these have been linked to a range of positive outcomes such as improvement in focusing, emotional regulation, increased feeling of calmness, and relaxation. Furthermore, they may be effective for reducing stress and burnout, anxiety, decrease in tiredness, aches, and pain. In this regard, this study aimed to examine the prevalence of the impact of virtual learning, to gather and present interventions (lessons and strategies) through systematic review. The data gathered will be recommended and utilized for instruction.
