Gratitude For Better Sleep?
We’ve all seen the research that suggests showing gratitude helps us feel better and may foster relationships and a sense of good in the world. But, did you know it can also help you sleep better? Before falling asleep, think about things you are grateful for and how that made life better. Chances are, you’ll drift off to sleep feeling relaxed and wake feeling refreshed.

Natural Crafts
We are blessed with so many natural crafting materials here in the Hawaiian Islands. From rocks, to shells to plant materials, there are many beautiful designs we can create. An easy, afternoon project is this Lauhala bracelet, made from materials you can find for free!

Care Packages Are Still Available!
Seriously a great way to relax this summer, these goodie bags are still available thanks to the Counselors in UH Hilo Counseling Services along with the folks from Campus Center. Mandalas, origami and more! Contact them at uhhcouns@hawaii.edu or (808) 932-7465 and get creative!

Resiliency Is Key
Learning to strengthen your ability to cope can help you adjust and navigate through life’s changes and challenges in a healthy way. People who can bounce back from stress are commonly described as "thriving" rather than "surviving", a testament to the role resilience can play in our lives. Check out the latest Stall Talk for more tips on how to live a resilient life!

Take Time For Mental Health
Mindwise has a great collection of screenings available to the UH Hilo Community. During this time, we may fall into habits we wouldn’t have otherwise. Do a self-assessment to determine any areas that need special attention.
