With the days getting colder and dark earlier, one can tend to fall into a sense of gloominess. Well, fear not! Here are some self-care ideas for you to try out as we get closer to the winter season. 

  1. Get cozy with a warm drink (tea, coffee, apple cider), comfy clothes, and a blanket! Watch one of your favorite movies/tv shows or work on some assignments.
  2. Light up some candles & play some of your favorite music. 
  3. Put on a face mask & wear some fuzzy socks! Maybe make a lip/body scrub? 
  4. Make your favorite comfort food or bake something.
  1. Journal, color, draw, or paint.
  2. Go outside and get some sunlight while you can! 
  • Take a walk, exercise, stretch, enjoy nature!
  1. Rearrange your furniture or redecorate & switch out your Halloween decorations.
  2.  Counseling sessions with CAPS

https://counseling.humboldt.edu/ or call CAPS receptionist at (707)826-3236

Available: Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 8:45 am-5 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays: 9:45 am-5:00 pm

  1. Talk to your advisors! Don’t forget to make plans for next semester. 
  2. Look for company. While these are times to be social distancing, you can still talk and catch up with others through phone calls, FaceTime, or Zoom!

We hope you have a great rest of your semester!! Keep up the good work, but don’t forget to allow yourself some time to relax.
