These times are not easy. Feeling isolated and lonely is very common, and life is very different than it was before the pandemic. Many people are having strong reactions to these changes. RIO, which stands for recognition, insight, and openness, is led by Counseling Center clinicians and provides an interactive experience that helps you:
•Learn mindfulness skills to identify why you’re feeling the emotions you are and accept them.
•Manage stress, anxiety, and other emotions productively.
•Identify what’s most important to you and prioritize accordingly.
