Employee Connections: Mindfulness Monday

Self Care Tip:
Plan for what you can:
Focus on concrete things you can problem-solve or change, rather than circumstances beyond your control.

Quote of the week
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

Shoreline Moments

Look out in tomorrow’s DAAG for the winners of the Employee Engagement/Wellness Bingo!

Positive comments from our Shoreline Students:

-Comments gathered from a survey from e-Learning.

Question: “Knowing that we all will be learning online for the Spring quarter, and that this is not everyone’s first choice, what can you control as an online student? Is there anything Shoreline can do to make online learning more effective for you? If so, what?”

· As a student I can control my learning environment. That may include having a good work space. No distractions such as a TV or cellphone. I can also control how much effort and dedication I put into my classes. I need the motivation and driving force in order to complete the necessary workload. Lastly, I can control my well being and health. I can drink water, eat healthy and stay active while in quarantine. As for Shoreline, I think they are doing whatever they can do assist students with this adjustment. They are having online resources readily available students such as scholarships, tips on how to do online learning and any kind of support for our mental well being. I really appreciate them for everything. I have nothing that comes to mind as of right now.

· As a student I can control my work time, break time, social time, etc. I get to make my own schedule which is such a benefit in some ways but also a challenge in some ways. I need to be proactive and maintain motivation through out the quarter in order to keep up with my courses. So far I think Shoreline is doing a great job helping the students with this process!

· As a student I can use the tips from Carrie to make learning and understanding easier, so I would be able to control what I learn and how I learn it. Shoreline CC is already helping me to prepare for online spring quarter.

· As a student I have control over the time and space to be allotted for my studies. From what I have seen so far SSC is doing everything to make online learning as convenient as possible. I will contact administration or individual instructors if I find anything that needs improvement over the quarter.

As a student, I can control my attitude towards the situation. While online school is not ideal and not what I had planned for, I feel very lucky that there is still an option for me to learn and not have to stop school completely. Having this attitude will help me when I get frustrated with being online. I am grateful for Shoreline’s communication during this time and I think that has helped eased anxiety of this new situation. Thank you.
