Every other week during the height of the Corona outbreak, TINT went on the TU/e Radio to help students deal with social distancing, self-esteem and digital detoxing. Here you can find all the recommendations given by the TINT team members.
It’s March 2020 and almost everyone is indoors. People, no matter social status, location, gender, religious or political beliefs are trying to protect themselves and those dear to them from a virus which seems unstoppable and disrupts our lives in ways we could not have conceived.

The secret to overcoming this?

The second annual Celebration of Women in Science was during the International Day of Women and Girls in Science and had the theme: Investment in Equality in Science, Technology and Innovation in the Era of Digitalization for Sustainable Development and, for this reason, we invited 3 amazing speakers.

The theme of this mindful dinner was ''Emotion''. Energetic Alchemist has been known to transform lower state emotions into higher, more joyful emotions.
Together, while guided by meditation, the participants experienced and transformed each emotion connecting deeper with themselves through the specifically designed dishes, all the way from anger to love.
Nowadays, many students deal with stress, anxiety, depression, which can all result in burnout, especially since people don’t like talking about these ‘sensitive’ topics, which just makes it worse. Just hearing that it’s okay to sometimes feel depleted or having a very unproductive day isn’t the end of the world, was enough for certain attendees to feel more at peace with themselves.
