Self Care Tips to Help Get Through the Semester
School can be an exciting and stressful experience. Ward off extended periods of stress that can lead to increased anxiety, restlessness, lack of focus and an overall state of overwhelm with these self care strategies.
Here are just a few ideas on how to prioritize YOU this semester:
Maintain Connections. Learning to manage your new schedule, social life and extra-curricular activities can be tough. A great way to remain grounded is to make time for the familiar. Call home. Meet up with your bestie. Stay connected to your roots.
Create a Self Care Ritual. Slot time in your weekly schedule to take care of your mind, body and soul. Whether it’s going for a long walk outdoors, getting a manicure, or adding a lujo bar steamer to your showering routine – taking time to pamper yourself can make all the difference.
Take a Break from Social Media & News. Scrolling through perfection and listening to the constant loop of doom and gloom on the news stream can take a toll on even the most well-balanced of folks. Don’t hesitate to power down and take a nap. It’s the perfect reset.
