Wellness Wednesdays: Mental health tips from Counseling Services
As the Salve Regina community figures out how to handle a whole new remote learning experience through Virtual Salve this week, Counseling Services thought it would be great to create some resources on mental health strategies to encourage undergraduate students as you embark on this virtual journey.
The video below is by Meghan Shea, licensed clinical social worker at Salve Regina. In this video, Shea guides you through the idea of creating a mantra — such as, “This is temporary” — to help you calm the mind and stay present during such a confusing, stressful time as everyone adjusts to challenging circumstances. Mantras can be a great way to help your mind focus on one encouraging, uplifting sentence at a time to help center it during tumultuous events, thoughts and feelings.
Watch the video below as Shea walks viewers through creating a mantra.
