December 2021 Stall Talk
Give the gift of self-care to yourself this holiday season.
"I olano ke kino i ka mā‘onao ka‘ōpū;
E pū paʻakai kākou me ka mahalo"
The body enjoys health when the stomach
is well filled; Let us share our food
together in thanks.
Why Practice Self-Care?
The holidays are a stressful time and we are more resilient and more able to handle life's stress when we are feeling our best both physically and emotionally.
Campus self-care resources
UH Hilo offers free online and in-person counseling. We have individual and group sessions. Our current groups include learning how to meditate, disability support, and social anxiety support (email email@example.com for more info on groups).
Possible self-care strategies:
- Get high quality sleep to rejuvenate your body & mind
- Ask for a massage as a holiday present
- Add your favorite mindfulness technique to your routine
- Surround yourself with people who care about you
- As the year comes to a close check in with yourself via journaling
- Spend time in nature or listening/dancing to your favorite music
- Practice saying "No" to events and people that do not fit your schedule or vibe
