Note from the Counsellors' Desk - January 2022

Centre for Counselling and Health Services (CCHS)

Dear Student,

A new year, new month and another new book opens its page today for you to write your journey through this New Year.

After a refreshing break, let's glide towards a new beginning and also the end of the semester.

Some of our students may be back on campus after a long hiatus. 

There is excitement to meet classmates, teachers and finally attend classes offline.

The winter mornings in Lavasa have warmed up but the end sem exams brings its share of stress and apprehensions.

No worries, let's do things differently this time


Here’s how 

I'm an image
  • Plan a realistic, achievable timetable well in advance
  • Eat, rest and sleep well (nah, don’t pull that all-nighter)
  • Take a walk outside in the sunlight
  • Avoid caffeine, nicotine or any other substance, they increase anxiety and stress
  • Keep hydrated
  • Take a break from time to time
  • Take 3 deep breaths when you feel overwhelmed
  • Appreciate how awesome you are

“New Year - a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story?

Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.”

 - Alex Morritt
