Dear Student

Self-care is taking care of your being in order to be balanced and energized and able to achieve all that you want. Self-care nourishes your mind, body and spirit and allows you to thrive. It also increases your happiness and ability to be focused & successful. Here are some self-care advices:
o Get up early and give yourself half an hour of meditation
o Set your daily goals and priorities to avoid procrastination and anxiety
o Make sure to perform deep-breathing exercises daily
o Explore new areas and skills to keep your mind sharp
o Ensure a balanced diet, that consist of immune-boosting fruits & vegetables
o Drink enough water in proportion to your body weight
o Avoid fast-food and soft-drinks
o Sit in the morning sun for 15 minutes
o Make sure to exercise with the aim of promoting blood circulation – either at home or by walking for half an hour around the block (bearing in mind social distancing guidelines).
o Finally, remember your daily prayers and that supplication is the heart of Islam. Allah asked us to pray and promised to answer. And the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said -as narrated by Abu Dawood and Al-Tirmidhi and according to Othman bin Affan: There is no servant who says every morning and evening: In the name of Allah, with whose name nothing is harmed on earth or in heaven (three times) I seek refuge in the full words of Allah from the evil of what He created (three times), nothing will harm him.
