Is lockdown starting to make you feel isolated and homesick? 😕 It might feel like combatting those feelings will be harder than ever due to lockdown. But there are still things you can do, and we’re here to help. Remember that it’s ok to feel homesick. There’s no shame in admitting you are missing home; most students are likely to experience this at some point (never mind in the middle of a country wide lockdown!!!). It’s helpful to acknowledge what you are feeling because it means you’re not trying to bury or push aside those emotions. We encourage you to talk to your housemates and friends about it — there’s a good chance they’re feeling the same as you. Here are some more tips on getting through this tough time: https://bit.ly/3dMvwwT #WeareUCA #MakersofUCA #homesick #accommodation #halls #uni #homesickness #freshers #isolated #isolation #covid_19 #covid #lockdown #covid19 #corona #coronavirus #lockdownuk #mentalhealth #wellness #blog
