Faculty Wisdom:
– Feeling tired, overwhelmed, busy, and disconnected? Consider taking time for productive rest. Sometimes when attending college there is a feeling that there is always an assignment that should be completed, a chapter to read, and notes to study. Scheduling in guilt-free rest can be immensely productive. When we rest our bodies, quiet our minds, and allow ourselves to take a mental/physical break from our work/school duties it actually increases capacity when we return back to
those duties. Productive rest may include a service project, recreating at a park, enjoying nature, attending a spiritual service, hanging out with a friend or loved one, relaxing while watching a movie, exercising, or eating a healthy snack or meal without distractions. This week block out an hour or two for productive rest and return rested, connected, and ready to fully engage in the next work/school activity. – Dr. LaChelle Rosenbaum, LMSW, Associate Professor and Social Work Program Director
