Self Care Resources for Remote TA, volume 11
June 04, 2020
Panthers, we have approached the final countdown.
After a spring semester we never could have imagined, we’re nearing the end of the 2019-2020 school year. This will be the last edition of our newsletter for the year. We hope the tools, links, and tips have been helpful.
As we head into summer and the weight of school lifts for awhile, it’s important to continue to keep self-care in mind. This summer is going to look different than the summers of years past, and we will all need to find ways to have fun, be social, and get our chill on with whatever protocols for social distancing continue to remain in place. You have been amazingly creative this year – in school, at home, with friends – and we know this will be an epic summer…even if some of it happens from six feet apart while wearing face masks.
Cool Things to do Online:
Mental Health Resources:
Mental Health with Kati Morton – a licensed therapist’s youtube channel directed to teens and young adults (thanks to an awesome student for showing me this one!)
Self Care Suggestions:
- Walk barefoot in the grass or on the sand (if you’re lucky enough to find yourself on a beach).
- Give yourself permission to cry (see mental health resources above) if you need to.
- Write a parody song or poem to chronicle your COVID experience.
- Stargaze – learn a new constellation and find it in the night sky.
- Fly a kite.
Health Office Corner with Sue Farrell:
As the end of school is in sight, I wanted to share this video with you. You are all too old for “bedtime stories” but this particular one is for people of all ages. I hope that you enjoy it and share it with your families and friends.
Good luck as you finish the school year!
Don’t forget — your Student Support Team is here to help. If you need anything, or just need to talk, don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
Wishing you the best as you wrap up your year and embark on a much-deserved break.
