Academic health and wellness stems from a supportive learning environment which permits students to learn and develop knowledge and skills, while also maintaining balance, mental health, and a sense of purpose.

How is this achieved? How can you avoid stress and burnout when it seems there is always more to do than there is time in the day? You may not be able to avoid stress but you can avoid burnout by balancing your studies with supportive relationships, time for self-care, utilization of some of the resources on campus for academic and emotional support, plus allowing yourself down time for rest and recreation. Achieving life balance is an ongoing process and a challenge that we all face. Learning to do so while in college will pay off in the long-run.

Work to develop a proactive approach to your health now through daily behaviors and habits to maintain your health and wellness. That, in turn, will have a positive impact on your academic success.
