The new semester and the 2020 Hackathon Season is upon us. You might find yourself spending all of your money on textbooks, staying up later than you would like, and taking on way too many projects (the last one hits especially close to home). That being said, this is my reminder to you that self care is a necessity and it is much easier to establish healthy habits early in the semester.
How do you practice self care?
Can you incorporate a culture of self care into your hackathon? Yoga? Healthy snacks? Sleep rooms? I want to hear your ideas.
Below are some resources that have helped me in the past!
Smart Alarms - this helps me make sure i’m getting enough sleep and wakes me up at a good time in my sleep schedule. It even has different types of activities for you to wake up to (solving a math problem, dream journals, etc), you can hook it up to Spotify and Google Music to wake up to a specific song, and a bunch of other features.
Bullet Journaling Bullet journaling completely changed my life, here’s an article to explain it and get you started if you’re interested
Yoga is Free I’ve been practicing yoga for years, but I stopped when I could no longer afford the classes and it didn’t fit into my schedule. But then I found the world of online yoga videos and it lets me do it whenever I’m free, no matter where I am.
Anyways, drink water! sleep! take care of yourself! etc.
