Feelings of loneliness and isolation are natural during this pandemic, but there are steps you can take to feel less alone. International students are invited to join International Student Counsellor Berak Hussain and Intercultural Programming Coordinator Niamh O’Shea for a workshop on ‘Navigating Your Social Transition to Canada & Carleton’. During this session, you will learn strategies and resources to help navigate the unique factors impacting loneliness and isolation for international students living in Canada during COVID-19. You will also build a personalized strategy for building and sustaining connections. This session is intended for new and returning international students currently residing in Canada.

Building a Healthy Lifestyle While Social Distancing

We know how hard it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle while physical distancing. When you're stressed because of exams, and now stressed while doing your part and staying inside, maintaining a balanced lifestyle is more than challenging. Healthy eating, sleep, and exercise are the first things we let go when under stress; however, they're among the first things we need to implement in order to gain balance.

One of our Health Promotion Team Leaders, Yasma, understands this dilemma all too well, and so she's here to help. Check out this video for tips and tricks to build a healthy lifestyle while social distancing and regain balance for a more productive you!

1. Practice sleep hygiene by creating and following a sleep routine, which may include brushing your teeth, reading a few pages of a book, and meditating.
2. Avoid having caffeine in the evening. The effects of caffeine can affect your sleep up to and over 6 hours after consumption.
3. Try not to use your phone when you’re about to go to bed. The blue light that is emitted by your phone affects your sleep quality.
