Self Care

The University of North Carolina attracts students with lofty goals, and in striving to reach those goals students must also contend with the unexpected opportunities and potential challenges life might present in today's society. Student Wellness provides a slate of strategies that can help you maintain your health and well-being, from reducing stress to getting more sleep to learning more about social interaction and relationships. There's a great deal of of solid science behind these tactics, so take a break and learn how to get better at taking a break.

Whether it's family, friends, co-workers or a significant other, being in a caring relationship is one of the true joys in life. Student Wellness provides an evidence-based workshop designed to increase your understanding of how to establish and maintain healthy relationships so that your health and well-being can fully benefit from the richness of those relationships.

For some, getting into college is another lap in a long race. Applying for college. Paying for college. Leaving home for college. Choosing curriculum in college. Succeeding in college. Oh, and throw in the realities of managing a social life and dating. No wonder even 10-year-old studies report that eight out of ten college students say they've had occasional or frequent stress.

This workshop illuminates how the daily deluge of media messages we receive affects our health and wellness, and in particular, our body image. Participants gain knowledge and critical perspective to help resist the unrealistic expectations fueled by today's 24/7, celebrity-mad culture.
