Mufaro: As an accounting student I have always put my mental health first. Being a student can be very emotionally draining. So I keep a balance by making videos on my YouTube channel. Giving myself a day off. Exercising and healthy eating is also very helpful for my mental health. My personal goals include getting my Youtube channel monetized, hoping it will grow and continue to make a positive influence. Working on my toxic traits. Learning Self love by learning to know my worth.
Mike: I fortunately have a couple of people that I can turn to when I’m feeling down, so they help a lot when it comes to taking care of my mental health. Besides that, I listen to a lot of inspirational feel good music, I occasionally feed my expensive habits i.e. shopping (that always makes me feel better) & I listen to a couple of inspirational podcasts.
These past few months have taught me that everything can be taken away in a flash. The coronavirus shut down is a reminder this is our now and it will be a while before the world recovers. My advice is to create your own blueprint and learn to live in the now because we are seeing every day that tomorrow is not promised.
