Individual Study Period: asynchronous classes wherein students can independently engage in learning materials; work at their own pace. The time allotted for this study does not involve immediate feedback from the educators. The researchers aimed to investigate the correlation of Individual Study Period (ISP) in the De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute (DLSMHSI) Grade 12 students’ self-care practices concerning the students’ lives. Questions like their outlook and frequency of doing self-care activities with afternoon ISP sessions are widened. Correlational design: used in the study to evaluate the correlation between variables without controlling the given from the quantitative data. Random sampling method: used for the respondents. Given 120 respondents answered the questionnaire, online platform, “Google Forms” played a vital role in COVID restrictions and supporting the researchers’ results. 61.7% reported moderate levels of self-care practice during home-based alternative learning modalities, while the remaining 25.8% and 12.5% have high and low levels. Findings suggested that students can balance the demands of academically related courses. It has proven to allow individuals to relax and unwind, improving health and productivity while decreasing stress and depression. With other self-care practices, there was insufficient evidence.
