Coping with #COVID19 related stress as a #JEENEET student:

Dear Students, as you are worried & anxious about the upcoming exam, it's better to focus on your wellbeing and avoid self-destructing attitude.

An attempt to provide some practical solutions.
1. Practice self-care: This will keep your immune system strong and your emotional reserves full. Get enough sleep. Exercise regularly. Eat well. Try mindfulness apps. Stay calm and focus - these are what you could do best.
2. Find ways to focus:

You might feel unmotivated now. Recognize that the current circumstances are hard for everyone. Don’t judge yourself; just do the best you can. Establish a routine. Get up, go to bed, and do your work at the same time every day. Take frequent breaks.
3. Seek out social support:

Your classmates have probably scattered. And having to stay at home can be lonely. To combat isolation, come together with your dorm-mates or graduate school cohort via technology. Turn on your webcam during virtual classes to feel more connected.
4. Help others cope:

Your classmates and family members are anxious, too. You don’t have to fix their problems. It’s enough to let them know they’re not alone.
5. Limit your media consumption:

Of course, it’s good to stay informed, especially about what’s happening in your area. But too much news, especially social media can add to your anxiety. To avoid being overwhelmed, set limits on your media consumption and smartphone use.
6. Focus on things you can control:

While modeling good behavior and staying safe yourself, recognize that you can’t control what other people do. You can only control your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Work on making your present better.
