Advice for students in quarantine: “Don’t be too hard on yourself if you find you don’t have the energy you used to and can’t get as much done. Feeling alone in a world that doesn’t make sense takes a lot out of you and there is no need to add more stress by beating yourself up for not hitting your apple watch ‘stand goal.’ Eat that ice cream. Watch that show. Take that nap. Take a leisure walk instead of a run. Allow your mind to heal. This is [COVID-19] time so be kind,” she said.
