Are you worried?

Right now, many are worried about the situation in Ukraine and the consequences it may have.

If you are worried, talking to someone might help. Putting into words how you feel can be helpful and relieving. You can talk to people around you, such as other students, a friend or a parent.

If you need someone to talk to about your concerns, please do not hesitate to get in contact with the Student Health services via phone, video call, or a physical visit at the Student Center.

Below are some tips on what you can do yourself to deal with worry.

How to deal with worry

  • You do not have to read or watch everything. A lot of information and photos of the war are distributed via social media. Limit the amount of news and avoid them right before going to bed.
  • Activate yourself. Try to stop your worries from taking over by focusing on something that makes you feel good. We all need a break from our thoughts. You can, for example, exercise, hang out with friends, watch movies, paint, do crafts or listen to music.
  • Stick to your routines. Try to eat and sleep at regular times. Meet with those you usually meet. Go to scheduled lectures and continue with your self-study as usual.
  • Exercise. Physical activity releases substances in the body that make you feel better and reduce stress. It does not have to be hard training – daily walks can be enough.
  • Engage yourself. If you are worried, it can be helpful if you do something about it and help those affected in some way. Think about how you can help or support those who are having a difficult time.

Open Door support for students
