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 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
