Practicing Self Care

Students discuss the importance of self-care and share their favorite strategies.

Maintaining Our Mental Health

It’s Important Whether We Are Feeling Well Or Not

Self care is the practice of intentionally doing things to help you improve or maintain your wellbeing and happiness, particularly when you are stressed. Self care is individual. What works for one person may not work for another. Find something YOU like and note that.

What makes
you feel happy?

Think about what makes you happy! Do you enjoy listening to music, socializing with friends, organizing your space, watching funny videos or a show you love, or making pottery? Finding out what makes you happy is important in your self care journey.

What makes you feel productive?

Feeling like you’re getting things done and accomplishing small goals can boost your mental health. Try things like cleaning up your space, completing a workout, organizing your closet, or journaling to sharpen your focus, elevate your mood, and declutter your mind.

Be a friend
to yourself

It is very important that we remember to take care of ourselves while we're supporting others. You can't be there for your friends if you're not taking care of yourself. Take time to show yourself the same empathy and kindness you show your friends.
