Staying Social While Distancing

News Story

Dyson College is serving up a detailed list of proven tips and tools while we all continue to practice social distancing leading up to the Fall 2020 semester. Be sure to check in with yourself and reach out! We’re here for support.

Dyson College is serving up a detailed list of tips and tools to hopefully make this time of social distancing a little easier, particularly as we gear up for the start of the Fall 2020 semester. This has been a difficult time for everyone, and we get that. Check out their full list of recommendations that includes seven expert-approved tips on how you can be productive, minimize stress, feel good, and engage with others while staying safe. Here were some of our favorites:

  • >> Establishing a dedicated workspace to signal to your brain that you are “open for business,” as well as calming areas to signal “closing time.” Keeping these separate can really help!
  • >> Learn more about how you personally cope with stress, and read through the resource list provided by the Counseling Center to get started on healthy management.
  • >> Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! This might seem simple, but drinking plenty of water will detoxify your system and keep your brain working at optimal levels.
  • >> Try out a few ways you can remain social while continuing to distance yourself physically from loved ones. It’s absolutely possible!
  • >> Write. It’s a wonderful form of expression—whether you decide to share what you’re working on or keep it to yourself for your own personal records.
