Make time for self-care
Date Posted: October 2, 2017
Phew! We’ve made it through our first month of classes. Congratulations!
As a second year student, I am finding getting back into the groove of being a student can be difficult. The novelty of post-secondary has faded and now it’s just classes, assignments, blackboard discussions, meetings, and readings. SO MUCH READING.
I just wanted to remind everyone that although your grades and classes are important, so is your mental health! Take care of yourself this semester.
Self-care comes in all forms. Whether you prefer going for walks, drawing, listening to music, or even sleep, taking time to do something for yourself is essential to your long-term success.
Stress can negatively affect your thoughts, emotions, body, and behaviour. If you feel overwhelmed, don’t hesitate to stop in and see someone in the Counseling and Career Center.
Learning to manage your stress and responsibilities is a huge part of college. Believe me, I’m in the same boat. If you aren’t feeling the need to talk to a professional, do me a favour and do something for yourself. You can always pop into the SA office for a chat too.
Until next time, take care nerds!
