There are five main aspects of personal health: physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and intellectual. In order to be considered "well," it is imperative for none of these areas to be neglected. The Health and Wellness Educators (HAWES) want to inform you, the student, of ways to maximize your personal wellness.

Physical:

  • Exercise! Even walking 30 minutes a day three times a week will greatly improve your health.


  • Eat Healthy. Avoid fried foods, soft drinks, processed meats, and sweets. Try to include 5 servings of fruits and vegetables in your diet everyday.


  • Don't skip meals. Especially breakfast, it slows down your metabolic rate and can cause weight gain.


  • Avoid heavy episodic drinking and drug use. No more than five drinks in one sitting for men and four for women. Don't play drinking games and space drinks over time alternating with a glass of water.


  • Get at least 6-8 hours of sleep every night.

  • Discover your personal stress reliever. Manage your time wisely because it will help lower stress.

  • Find someone that you trust who you can openly share your feelings with.

  • Need to talk? Go see your PEER, HAWE, or RA.

  • Seek professional help when you need it.

  • Smile even when you don't feel like it.
