How to destress

Self-Care Tips

1. Listen to music to destress!
FFF Digital created a collaborative playlist. It’s important to take sometime for yourself. You can listen to music and reflect on life. The good thing about music is that you don’t have to look at a screen to listen :))
2. Take breaks!
If school or work, or anything feels really difficult, don’t hesitate to take a break :) Your mental health is important, especially during the pandemic where it might be easy to get lonely 😢. But all you have to do is unplug, delete Slack for a while, because mental health is super important :)).
3. Meditate, stretch, do yoga
