"While these adverse events, much like rough river waters, are certainly painful and difficult, they don’t have to determine the outcome of your life. There are many aspects of your life you can control, modify and grow with. That’s the role of resilience. Becoming more resilient not only helps you get through difficult circumstances, it also empowers you to grow and even improve your life along the way." Source: American Psychological Association

"Hey Siri, can you define resilience?" 📱🔎👀⠀
.⠀
"Psychologists define resilience as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress — such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems, or workplace and financial stressors. As much as resilience involves 'bouncing back' from these difficult experiences, it can also involve profound personal growth." ⠀

At a time when stress, anxiety, and grief are pressing to take control of your thoughts, what are you doing to fight back? How do you maintain positive and see new, good things when life at home can be monotonous?⠀

Look for 3 Good Things in Your Day. For 5-10 minutes:⠀
1️⃣ Write down three things that went well during your day.⠀
2️⃣ Reflect on how they made you feel then and now.⠀
3️⃣ Think about what caused those good things to happen. ⠀

Scientifically-proven to elevate your mood and increase positive thinking. Try it today and every day!⠀

Be proactive - ask for clarification from your course instructors via email as you need it; instructors are there to help you navigate your learning ⠀
Read the syllabus & news updates frequently - especially as courses are traditionally completed in-person, requirements and dates may change in the upcoming weeks; check your student account and email frequently to stay up to date ⠀
Know the schedule - know the tentative schedule for your online course and your personal schedule; plan ahead of time to get assignments completed before a busy week ⠀
Do not procrastinate - work ahead of time if possible; if you or a loved one finds yourself in critical condition during this time, may sure to reach out to your course instructors ASAP ⠀
Support & encourage classmates - remember your classmates are in the same boat; reach out to classmates as you would for in-person courses to work together to better understand concepts and assignment requirements ⠀
Engage in discussions - discussions can be imperative to online learning success; completing a discussion post may be sufficient but try to identify and learn one major concept from each post⠀
Stay organized - use a planner, write down due dates, keep a to-do list; each will help you ease into a course online ⠀
Revise assignments & check for plagiarism - do not wait until the last minute to start an assignment; begin an assignment ahead of time allowing an extra day to revise/make edits and check for plagiarism; this can be done by using TurnItIn⠀
Use your experiences - oftentimes online courses will include some form of discussion posts; utilize your experiences to apply course concepts to examples for your life; this helps the concept stick and allows for a better discussion ⠀
Remain flexible - online courses during this time may change frequently as course instructors are converting their courses to an online style

COVID-19 has disrupted international travel for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, your spring and summer study abroad programs have likely been postponed or cancelled. What does this mean now?⠀

For now: stay safe, stay home, and stay engaged by learning what your host country is facing today. More importantly, know that this, too, will come to pass. Travel will not be cancelled forever.⠀

"This guidance is for Institutes of Higher Education with students participating in international travel or study abroad programs.⠀

Given the global outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) institutes of higher education (IHE) should consider postponing or canceling upcoming student international travel programs. IHE should consider asking current program participants to return to their home country. Those overseeing student international travel programs should be aware that students may face unpredictable circumstances, travel restrictions, challenges in returning home or accessing health care while abroad."⠀

What are your favorite ways to relax? ⬇️ ⠀

Some of our favorites, courtesy of SAMHSA:⠀
1️⃣ "Relax your body often by doing things that work for you-take deep breaths, stretch, meditate or pray, or engage in activities you enjoy."⠀
2️⃣"Pace yourself between stressful activities, and do something fun after a hard task." ⠀
3️⃣"Talk about your experiences and feelings to loved ones and friends, if you find it helpful." ⠀
4️⃣ "Maintain a sense of hope and positive thinking; consider keeping a journal where you write down things you are grateful for or that are going well."⠀
