Taking Care of Yourself and Your Wellbeing

Taking Care of Yourself and Your Wellbeing

The first priority every day, and especially during this time of “stay at home” and closures, is taking care of yourself. It may be challenging not to have your familiar routine, the ability to go places or hang out with friends, or to do many of your favorite activities. Adjustments in our everyday lives to limit the spread of disease may be hard, but we're in it together to take care of the overall health and wellbeing of everyone in our community. By acknowledging our feelings, seeking support and staying flexible, we are able to successfully adapt to the current conditions.
Things that you have planned may have changed or you are missing some experiences too. It is okay to feel sad, angry, or frustrated about these losses. We are all experiencing them in different ways and it is unusual to have them happening in many parts of our lives, not just one at a time. We should acknowledge and understand that reality and express our authentic feelings about it. We can transition to meet this moment! For more information about taking care of yourself, visit the Social-Emotional Supports page for resources, tips and how to get help if you need it.   
College & Career Resources during COVID-19 Closures

College & Career Resources during COVID-19 Closures

The consistent message from all colleges and organizations has been that there will be increased flexibility and understanding and that students will not be penalized by the impacts of COVID-19 or school closures. Remember, from K-12 to colleges, everyone in education is adjusting to this new situation. Some processes may change slightly. Most aspects are staying the same, such as the CSU, UC and Common Applications and timelines, or have only minor changes to be more flexible or to add questions related to how COVID-19 may have impacted an applicant or to allow a candidate to provide more context or information explaining any such impacts.
