Lockdown blues? Here are some tips to ease your journey through the pandemic as a college student

1. Discover new music: whether it’s going through a rough patch or doing math relentlessly, music always comes to the rescue, here are some music artist recommendations by us! 1975, UPSAHL, The local train, F8L, Ankur Tewari, and there are always Bollywood bangers to shake a leg and shake some stress off to.

2. Take up reading: in these times of chaos, reading can be a safe haven and an escape. Some recommendations to get you started: 1) A court of thorns and roses by Sarah J. Maas 2) the mortal instruments by Cassandra Clare. 3) ikigai by F Miralles and Hector Garcia 4) think and grow rich by napoleon hill

3. Meditate, exercise, and practice yoga: it’s a proven fact that exercise releases endorphins that make you feel better, and who would mind having a little feel-good moment these days? You could always take up a Chloe ting challenge or meditate and practice affirmations to the abundance of videos present on youtube for these purposes.

4. Courses: there are many courses available, even prestigious institutions like Harvard offer various courses and provide certificates that can be a great addition to your CV. (Check out EdX for more).

5. Netflix recommendations: I think we’re all well versed with this so let’s head straight to our recommendations. (Rick and Morty, the crown, breaking bad, Bojack horseman, the end of the f**king world.)

6. Along with all of this we also need to realize that we’re all going through a very tough time together. It’s alright if you can’t be productive, don’t have the energy or mind space to attend classes, or aren’t feeling your best. It’s natural. Doesn’t make you any less of a great human being. To help with your mental health, journaling your thoughts, writing diaries, or consulting online counselors and joining self-help groups can be helpful. Take care of yourself. ❤️
