Courtney Wooten (she/her/hers)
27:08
So many good ones
Lydia Wilkes

That approach was helpful for me, too, Jacob—and I don’t have kids. It helped me get back into a work rhythm, too. Lists were integral to making that happen.
Jacob Babb
28:21
Yes, Lydia! Lists got me through grad school before kids. I just somehow always forget the power of them.
Jacob Babb
28:30
And sorry, Kristi. I said Kate. :(

59:57
My group and I had a really great conversation, and I think this discussion was something I need during these times. So thank you for setting this up!
Cathy Gabor

Perhaps we can socialize on Zoom during the summer?
Patti Poblete
01:01:12

Jacob Babb

Exercise was coming up in several rooms, which makes a lot of sense.
Patti Poblete
01:02:08
I forgot to mention my movie project!
Patti Poblete
01:02:13
(watching not making)
Nate Mickelson
01:02:17
Patricia and I in group 5 talking about reading for pleasure/enjoyment as a strategy, too!
Amanda Presswood
01:03:21
Sure can!
Kristin Prins
01:03:49
@Patti, what’s the project?
Patti Poblete
01:04:29
It's silly but: I've been watching a movie a day from different franchises and report out on social media. Star Wars took me a long while.
Kristin Prins
01:04:38
That’s awesome!
Jacob Babb
01:04:41
Patti is always a good follow on the socials.
Kate Navickas (she/her/hers)
01:04:44
Love that!
saralovett
01:04:59
Patti, are you on Twitter?
Annie Mendenhall
01:05:03
Patti! I also watched every Star Wars movie/TV show at least once LOL
Kristin Prins
01:05:08
I follow but have been trying to avoid socials for self-care reasons, lol
Patti Poblete
01:05:08
Yup! @voleuseCK
Lydia Wilkes
01:05:43
As a friend of mine has said: “what summer?”

@Lydia, I can't do the What About Bob recommendation and "take a vacation from my problems."
Lydia Wilkes
01:08:53
Zoom happy hour? There’s a group in my college that did this in April and May.
Mellisa Huffman
01:09:15
Need to do more of that.
Lydia Wilkes
01:09:36
Cats help with self care. They make you get up sometimes!
Mellisa Huffman
01:09:56
Yes, my two rat terriers help.

01:10:11
Rat terries, yes! <3

Kristin Prins
01:10:51
Oooh, this reminds me of one of my favorite self-care practices (even pre-Covid): turning off notifications!
Sherry Rankins-Robertson
01:10:54
Lydia, I changed my office hours to “happy hour” during COVID (no alcohol—just Capri Sun and M&M) but students started showing up to just talk about how they were managing COVID circumstances.
Courtney Wooten (she/her/hers)
01:10:59
Yes, no notifications!!
Jennifer Grouling Snider
01:11:03
Log off and have your password saved on the computer, but you don’t know it so you can’t use it on the phone!
Lydia Wilkes
01:11:24
@Sherry I love that! A soda hour would be very popular here.
Jacob Babb
01:11:27
Notifications are bad. I can’t work with them. I don’t even let my computer ping at me when I get an email.
Cathy Gabor
01:11:28
@ Lydia, yes, sort of zoom happy hours with colleagues — we invited people to share favorite cocktail/cocktail recipes
Cathy Gabor
01:11:54
Cocktail/mocktail that is!
Kate Navickas (she/her/hers)
01:12:17
On iPhones, it’s the sleep option
Annie Mendenhall
01:13:15
I agree: I turned off all notifications on my phone
CWPA President
01:13:51
