Quarantine can be an isolating time. It can be easy to become a couch potato; watching Netflix and spending all day falling down social media rabbit holes. It disrupts your routines, and for some people can make them feel anxious about everything that is going on in the world creating an unhelpful mindset.
While we adjust to our temporary new normal with social distancing and self-isolation measures, you may be feeling more stressed or anxious. One way you can help to ease these feelings of anxiousness is by practicing mindfulness. You can use mindfulness when you are starting to recognise you are getting feelings of stress to ground yourself and get out of the unhelpful headspace and more present in the current moment.
The University of Queensland Union (UQU) wishes to brief its staff, students, stakeholders and the entire student community at the University of Queensland about our response to COVID-19 and how it may impact the student experience.
