OLC has things to help students go pro. Having been part of the OLC's technical team and coming from a tech background myself, I tend to skim through tech-related articles first, diving deeper into the ones that pique my interest. I've compiled a list of my favourite finds from the OLC website, considering them valuable assets for fellow students. 

Work-Life Balance and Productivity While Working From Home

I can totally relate to the strategies mentioned, especially considering my experience with an 8-month remote co-op earlier this year. Scheduling in advance and planning tasks the day before were game-changers for me, helping maintain productivity while avoiding burnout. The focus on creating a designated workspace and incorporating microbreaks aligns with my own efforts to combat distractions and enhance overall well-being during remote work. Taking breaks outside, even if just for a short walk, indeed had a positive impact on resetting my mind and maintaining a healthier work-life balance.

The Importance of Social Connection

I resonate with this piece because it acknowledges the challenge of maintaining meaningful connections in a busy student life. The practical tips offered, like joining activities and maintaining healthy relationships, provide actionable steps to enhance social connections, emphasizing the importance of both personal well-being and community support. 

Getting Out of My Shell with an Exchange in Denmark

Reading about this experience was truly enjoyable! The insights into packing light and using travel cubes for efficiency, along with your emphasis on incorporating microbreaks during work from home, resonated with my own experiences. It's refreshing to see how this exchange student navigated settling into a new environment, and your approach to adapting and thriving in Denmark is inspiring. These tips for future students, especially about taking advantage of every opportunity and staying flexible, are valuable reminders for anyone embarking on a similar journey.
