Mind Your Zot!
Summer is a great time to reflect on all the things you have done and learned along the way, and to also consider what areas you would like to grow into as you transition into the next academic year.
Take time to reflect, and perhaps even journal out your thoughts:
- Start from a place of strengths: What are the characteristics within you that have helped you cope with stressful situations thus far? What are some of the accomplishments that make you feel proud and confident? What did you learn about yourself when getting through tough times? What strengths did you develop as a result of the challenges you faced?
- Identify your interests: What have you learned so far that excites you? What are you interested in learning more about? If you had all the time in the world, what would you choose to do?
- Areas you want to improve: As you reflect on your experiences, could certain aspects have been better? What are some things you can do differently next time when you face similar situations?
- Develop your goals and intentions with your strengths, interests, and areas of improvement in mind. Don’t be afraid to break your goals into smaller manageable milestones and be sure to reward yourself when you meet them!
As work on your goals, remember to utilize your strengths, particularly when facing challenges, and reach out for support when needed!
Mind Your Zot!
It is getting closer to the holiday break and the end is in sight! Soon we will be with family and friends and getting some much-needed relaxation after the start to the quarter! Phew!
While this time can be something to look forward to, it is important to still be aware of caring for your mental health. Here are some things to consider as we reach the end of the year!
It is natural to feel stress, anxiety, grief, and worry during and after an emergency like the COVID-19 pandemic and continued concerns around anti-Black and anti-Asian violence and discrimination. Everyone reacts differently, and your own feelings will change over time. Notice and accept how you feel. Taking care of your emotional health during an emergency will help you think clearly and react to the urgent needs to protect yourself and your loved ones. Self-care during an emergency will help your long-term healing.
