Take care of yourself in all 7 dimensions of wellness

* The seven dimensions of wellness include: Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Physical, Environmental, Financial/Occupational, and Spiritual.

* Learn what they all are and how you can improve each dimension in your life to achieve overall wellness!

Think of your stress as motivation to get everything done

* When you’re stressing over an upcoming test, come up with a study plan and follow it.

* Remind yourself that stress is inevitable, but the way you handle it is something you can control.

Talk it out with your friends

* Most likely your roommates and classmates are going through similar stressors as you.

* Don’t be afraid to vent! (You’ll probably feel a lot better after getting it all out -- also this can be a starting point for creating a plan to get everything done.)

Utilize your campus resources

* The Counseling Center, McKinley Health Center, and Campus Recreation are all great places to go to learn more about improving your wellness.

* Check out the stress management educators at McKinley to receive individual advice on improving your stress!

Practice self-care

* Some common self care methods are going to the gym, meditating, spending time with loved ones, reading, and watching television.

* Do something fun with friends: hot yoga, a mindful walk around the quad, or a fitness or cooking class at the ARC!
