Self-care is vital, especially during a pandemic. Here are some ways you can take care of yourself.

  • Be kind to you! Remember that everyone is feeling out of sorts.
  • Sleep well and nap when your body is tired.
  • Spend a few minutes each day writing your thoughts down in a journal.
  • Seek support. (We are in this together) studentsuccess@loyalistcollege.com
  • Try to disconnect from social media during the day and do some deep breathing exercises.
  • Go for a walk or exercise at your own pace.
