It’s an opportunity to exercise your mind and expand your horizons. Unfortunately, for too many stu- dents it becomes an opportunity to stop exercising their bodies and begin expand- ing their waistlines! Because the college environment might be new to you, you could forget to take care of yourself. Many students can handle the transition to college easily, using various coping mechanisms. Others drink too much or smoke too much. Some over- eat or develop an eating disorder such as bulimia or anorexia. Some become so stressed that their anxiety overwhelms them. Some ignore their sexual health and then have to deal with a sexually transmitted infection or an un- planned pregnancy. This chapter explores the topic of wellness, which is a catchall term for taking care of your mind, body, and spirit. Wellness means making healthy choices and achieving balance. It includes reducing stress in positive ways, keeping fit, maintaining good sexual health, and taking a sensible approach to alcohol and other drugs.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
