Nyyti News 8/2020
Once again, we have reached the time of year when there is less daylight and more darkness. Darkness affects our energy, will and determination to do something. It seems to take away strength from many of us. For some of us remote learning or remote working may also represent burden.
In November, Nyyti's communication will focus on coping. By following us through different channels, you may get good tips for promoting and maintaining resilience. The Student Welfare Network (Opiskelijahyvinvointiverkosto), led by Nyyti ry, is organising a webinar on 19 November 2020 to discuss how we can support students' coping. The webinar will be held in Finnish.
Remember to enjoy the little moments of everyday life as they help us cope!

The Polar Night and "kaamos", the season without sunrise, refers to the darkness of the Finnish winter. The lack of daylight combined with coldness affects our mind and bodies. For someone not used to this radical environmental change the effects can be quite harsh. Brace yourselves - for the night is dark and full of terrors.
Come fight them with us!
