Well-Being

"Well-Being helps combine two important aspects of your life such as mental health and physical health. Elements of well-being can form your purpose (value of impacting others), resilience (belief in oneself), relationships (building positive relationships), and achievement (accomplishing worthwhile goals). All three elements can help an individual to be active, be connected, and be themselves. For more information, check out the Center for Disease Control.

Stress

"Stress is the body's reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. Main causes of stress for students tend to stem from finances, relationships, academic performance, and more. Strategies to assist in coping with stress include physical activity, maintaining a positive attitude, relaxation techniques, and time-management strategies.

Sleep

"Adequate sleep reduces the risk of mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Sleep can improve the ability to learn, increases brain function, boost your immune system, increase your concentration and memory, and restores energy. It is recommended for adults to get 7-9 hours of sleep per night. For more information, check out the Mayo 6 Clinic's Steps to Better Sleep."

Healthy Eating

"Healthy eating helps maintain and improve a person's health and well-being. Eat the rainbow, meaning add a variety of color to your plate such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats & poultry, and seafood. If alcohol is consumed, it should be consumed in moderation - up to one drink per day for women and up to two drinks per day for men - and only by adults of legal drinking age. For more information, check out Key Elements of Healthy Eating Patterns, brought to you by health.gov."

Social Support

"A strong, positive social support system can help you get through challenging times. It provides comfort knowing that the individuals around you are there for you if you need them. Not only are you relying on others, but you also serve as a form of support for many people in your life. Lack of social support is linked to depression and feelings of loneliness. For more information, check out the Mayo Clinic's Stress Management & Social Support page."
