Introduction to self care
Across nearly two decades of teaching both in classrooms and online, I have seen students
of all ages and abilities learn and grow.
One observation that I would say is universally true is that self-care is critical
for successful learning.
A healthy mind (and body) is a mind ready to learn.
Self-care means taking an active role in preserving and protecting your well-being,
and it is especially important during times of stress and change.
What is self-care?
Self-care is any activity or practice done deliberately to nurture your emotional, mental,
and physical health.
While self-care is a rather broad topic, in this module we will highlight self-care techniques
that support your ability to learn.
