5 Healthy Ways to Wellbeing

Engaged students balance work, school, family, friends, Netflix, and, well, life. It’s exhausting! Investing in being happy, healthy and well provides a foundation for achieving balance and sustaining success in all these areas. This hands-on session on self-care explores what it means to feel good and function well as an engaged student. Drawing on recent evidence from the study of well-being, you’ll be introduced a cluster of activities that promote resiliency and prevent burnout so you can be at your best.
