We understand that there is a lot of anxiety, stressors, and uncertainty during this unprecedented time. In order to support your emotional and mental health, we have selected these important thoughts around caring for yourself and your wellbeing during COVID 19:
- Do not be hard on yourself for struggling with the effects of isolation, distancing, and lockdown. We have never faced anything of this nature before and are slowly developing coping mechanisms with which to support and soothe ourselves.
- Keep track of your schedule, work and academic engagement using a simple notebook planner or journal (reminder – there are notebook tips in the student orientation manual on myClass).
- Do something every day that brings you comfort and enjoyment. Sustain your positive emotions for as long as possible.
