1. CLEANING WIPES/CLEANING SOLUTION
You do need to check with your campus on this one, since you'll likely be using their furniture. My mom's sister Kendra suggested Macrban 24. It is a sanitizing spray you can use with paper towels to sanitize.
2. WASHABLE MASKS, LOTS OF 'EM
3. GUM OR MINTS
4. YOUR OWN MINI FRIDGE, IF YOU CAN
5. HANDSOAP AND MINI HAND SANITIZERS
6. FIRST AID KIT AND OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDS
That's it for today. I know some colleges and universities are planning to cut the school year short, so consider how much you're packing and how long it will take you to pack up to leave!
Have any more suggestions? Please leave them in the comments below!
College season is rapidly approaching. Some of you reading this might already be in college or have children who are already on campus somewhere. Trust me when I say that the freshman 15 (or the freshman 50 for some people) is a thing. Additionally, burnout, anxiety disorders, and depression can form during collegiate years.
I will say that I didn't do the best I could to stay and my best. But, I know some things now that I wish I had known then! In today’s #WellnessWednesday post, I will be giving you a few tips to assuring your mental and physical health stays as balanced as possible during your time in college. Let’s get started!
LEARN QUICKLY THAT IT IS OK TO SAY NO
Learning quickly to say no so that you can focus on your mental health and your scholastic health will be good in the long run.
DON’T TREAT THE CAFETERIA LIKE A BUFFET
It may be tempting at first, but use your will power to keep yourself away from eating excessively.
SAY NO TO FAST FOOD RUNS EVERY NOW AND THEN
ENGAGE YOUR SPIRIT
For some, this means going to church. For others, it may be meditation. Heck, some people may connect with their spiritual self with a face mask, a lit candle, and some soft music. Do what you can to engage your spiritual side.
TRY TO WALK EVERYWHERE
I also wore makeup and dressed relatively nice at least a few days a week. I drove at that point. However, when I lived in my sorority house, I was able to walk to classes and the cafeteria with ease!
MAKE YOURSELF A SCHEDULE
It is so important, and it is something I wish I had known years before.
