Overview: Whatever the Easter break means to you, on behalf of the teams at HCDS and Oasis we hope it is a happy one! In this post just a couple of small notifications about opening hours and access to the Crisis Line. Reading time ~ 2.5 minutes.
It is Easter!
This means different things to different people. For some it is an important religious holiday. For others it is about time with family. For others, it is a chance to lie in a pile of chocolate wrappers in a haze of shame.
Whatever your relationship with Easter, I hope you are able to allocate your time and attention in a way that refreshes, rejuvenates, rewards or rewires you. I’ll take some extra time to be with family. I’ll also work in the garden, tend to the lawns, binge-start a new TV show and even work on a couple of psychology projects that need some tlc.
A book I read recently on behaviour change suggested we use such opportunities as a ‘fresh start’. If you’ve not been having the academic year you wanted, perhaps use this break to put together a plan for how you will return to study with new tactics and refreshed motivation.
As far as Health, Counselling and Disability Services and Oasis, we will be closed over the 4 days (Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon), all resuming business on the Tuesday 19th.
We look forward to re-connecting again when we return!
