"Wellness," funny term. What's your definition?
Student Wellness & Health Promotion defines it by considering the many components of one's well-being, such as emotional, physical, intellectual, social and spiritual health.
Wanna assess how you fare across all these components? Or just wanna find out about something specific?
Here are some examples of questions or thoughts you may have that might fall under the general heading "Wellness":
- College is hard. How do I balance classes, friends, activities/clubs, work, exercise, partying and studying? I can't seem to keep up or get it under control.
- I work out and eat well but I still don't feel healthy.
- I can't sleep or I don't get enough sleep. I'm tired all the time.
- I am stressed out all the time.
- I would like to learn more about massage as a means of stress management (Request a Pow! Massage program!).
- I would like to learn other stress management technniques, such as Autogenic Exercises or Progressive Neuromuscular Relaxation.
- I need to find the time to exercise.
- I hate the gym. I need to find a fitness activity that I will like to do. Does the walking I do on my way to class count as exercise?
- I can't get anything done that I need to do because I am always listening to someone else or doing something with or for someone else.
- I have a chronic health condition that makes school seem so much more difficult and no one seems to get it.
- I recently lost someone close to me and I feel like all my friends can't relate.
- Gaming helps me relax and its fun but it's also getting out of hand.
