Self-Care Tips: Motion & Emotion

During this past week, I've been receiving messages from friends and family that are dealing with our quarantine situation in different ways.  Some people are embracing the "nesting" and cleaning their rooms and houses or doing crafty projects, whereas others are longing for social interaction and feeling lonely and isolated.  We are all going to respond differently and our feelings and thoughts may change day-by-day or hour-by-hour.

HONOR YOUR EMOTIONS…

Self-Care During Times of Stress

I know that we are all trying to wrap our minds around the changes that have happened in the past few weeks. It has been a whirlwind and, all of a sudden, our life activities (including school) are happening within the walls of our own homes. It is natural to feel a sense of confusion, worry, and frustration about these changes that have been made outside of our control.

Finding a New Balance - Helpful Tips During Changing Times

Just as suddenly as it began, it seemed to be over.

As more and more days began to pass, talk and rumors circulated within the air.  Next thing you know, the rumors became true. They became our new reality.  We received the email that all students will have to leave campus, and we will be completing our spring semester classes online until further notice.  A million questions start to fill your head, “What should I pack?”, “How long will we be off campus?&…

It's Midterm Season!

It’s hard to believe that the semester is already halfway over. This has been the fastest semester of my life to date, but it has also been the busiest. Midterm season came faster than I thought it would. With clinic and all of my classes, as well as balancing a job and making time for myself so I don’t collapse, finding time to study seems impossible.

Time Management 101

The biggest adjustment from high school to college has to be time management. In high school, you’re in school for eight hours a day, participating in extracurricular activities, and you still have to eat and do homework. You barely have time to think on this busy schedule, and everything has a set time for when it gets done. When you get into college, you suddenly have more free time than you know what to do with. This may seem like a good thing, but free time is actually a double-edged …

Grad School Jitters

You always hear the old cliché that time flies, but you never really believe it until it actually hits you. It feels like just yesterday I was starting my college experience. Now, it’s my senior year and I’m starting graduate school. It’s hard to believe that in a year I’ll be finishing up with my schooling and getting into the nitty gritty of real adult life. It’s honestly a little scary how fast time is moving and grad school is more than a little …

Diving Right In to the Practical Side

Everyone knows that the best part of school is actually diving into your major. It's when things really get exciting. Being a speech major, I’ve been lucky enough to have speech classes sprinkled throughout my semesters at Misericordia. This year, I’m actually getting into the practical use of everything I’ve learned so far. I’m enrolled in Optional Clinic for the spring semester, and I’m having the time of my life.
