Self Care Resources for Remote TA, volume 5

Hi, Panthers,

It’s the last week before a break! We hope you’re continuing to take care of yourself, and that next week will give you some space to breathe, even if you can’t travel to places far and wide. Are you marking this non-traditional April break in any fun or exciting ways?  

Cool Things to do Online:

Self-Care Suggestions:

  • Plant a garden
    • With the weather (hopefully) turning nicer, it’s a good time to till up a garden plot. Some seeds can be planted early, like leafy greens (kale, spinach, and some lettuces), radishes, peas, or beets.
  • Do a puzzle
    • Did you know jigsaw puzzles have been proven to improve short-term memory? 
  • Stick to a sleep schedule
    • Now that you don’t have to worry about a commute to and from school, make a regular sleep schedule a priority and see how good it makes you feel.
  • Express gratitude
    • Write an email or note to someone who has had a positive effect on your life. Research shows that both the sender and recipient of these communications feel positive benefits from the expressed gratitude.

Stay strong, Panthers, and enjoy your upcoming break!

Be well,
