May Staff Picks: Self Care for Finals & Beyond

May Staff Picks: Self Care for Finals & Beyond

Reading Room, Second Floor

"Here at TC, May brings both the stress of finals week and the excitement and relaxation of the beginning of summer. During this month, it’s imperative that we remember to take care of ourselves so we can not only survive finals, but get a true recharge and reset with the beginning of the summer break. These selections can help you do just that! Self-care is multidimensional and different people require different things in order to properly care for themselves. In order to accommodate various needs in this area, these books are arranged into various categories: mindfulness, meditation, sleep, gratitude and self-talk, specialized advice for educators and other people in helping professions, and books that are just plain fun to read. Check out whatever category is currently calling out to you, and I hope that my picks bring some rest and relaxation into your life!"
