Why is self-care important?

Welcome to the Self-care Hub!

As part of De La Salle University-Dasmariñas’ care-centered model for online learning, the University seeks to aid students, faculty, staff and parents in navigating through the challenges of the pandemic through self-care.

The Self-Care Hub was developed to provide an avenue for all members of the Lasallian community to rejuvenate and nourish their overall well-being by freely using therapeutic techniques (online or on-site) to establish connections of the present situation with various life’s challenges.


“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” — Buddha

The pandemic ushered into our consciousness a barrage of terms like self-care, self-love, balance, and for the best reason. The extraordinary circumstances brought major or even drastic changes to the lives of almost everyone. And we, the members of the academe are far from being spared.

The shift to full online education, household chores, extreme alterations in study habits and time management, isolation and separation from larger social groups, the inability to go out, hang out and do things outside, confinement to one’s limited space day in day out, and even loss of a loved ones are the loops that we have been thrown into since the pandemic started.

This pressure and the anxiety it may bring to a person is the very reason terms like self-care is considered a saving grace. Self-care is a key to maintain a person’s equilibrium in the midst of the forces coming in from everywhere.
