Return to Campus
As we return to campus for work or study, you may experience feelings of anxiety. There is nothing wrong with feeling anxious about changes and uncertain times, and you are not alone in these feelings. A range of anxiety-related emotions and responses could include:
- Fear, worry or anxiety
- Feelings of stress or being overwhelmed
- Feelings of sadness or tearfulness
- Poor concentration, insomnia or other sleep problems
- Stomach issues, heart palpitations and other physical symptoms
- Tiredness, irritability, or low energy
- Withdrawing from colleagues or other situations involving contact with others
- Fear of public spaces and public transit
It is important that as we navigate a return to campus, employees and students become familiar with all available resources and supports.
