Self-Care At University
Talk to someone
Moving to University, although an exciting prospect, can be hard and lonely sometimes. This is quite common and it’s ok to feel this way. But it’s no good for you to bottle this all up and deal with it on your own. The best thing to do is to talk to someone you feel comfortable with and someone you’d think would understand. I’m sure that if you’re feeling this way, some of your flatmates or friends are probably feeling the same. Let them know what you’re feeling and together you can either try to find a solution or sometimes it’s just nice to have someone to talk to. Talking will most definitely make you feel better.
Take time out
University can be very intense at times. Balancing your course, a social life and even sometimes a job isn’t easy which is why sometimes it’s good to just take some time to look after yourself. Taking a break from everyone can do wonders. Even if it’s just an hour a day or a day out of your week, I’m sure you’ll feel much better. Whenever I’m feeling like I need a break, I usually go for a walk, take a nice hot shower and watch some films to make me feel better.
