Wellness News #22 - 5/17/2021

Bi-weekly newsletter presented by student health & wellness programs


The Spring 2021 semester is now behind us! Congratulations to all of the graduates as well as those that have simply finished another semester. We, at Student Health & Wellness Programs, certainly hope it was a productive and successful step in your academic career. This issue intends to provide a few tips and helpful suggestions for making the best of your downtime this summer. Even if you are taking summer classes, here's to hoping you'll find a little time to unwind and relax. Enjoy!

Find Balance In Life

Traditionally a slower, simpler time filled with outdoor activities, family gatherings, and star-filled nights, summer now means many different things to different people. Some will engage in summer classes, or summer camps, and some will work extra hours at their regular jobs. However, no matter how you choose to spend the summer, be sure to balance activities throughout the various areas of life, so that no part of you gets overlooked, or overworked. For a bit of inspiration, and to learn more about finding balance, check out the Lōkahi Wheel and spend a moment thinking about your life balance.

Apps To Guide Your Wellness

Counseling Services at UH Hilo is here to support you no matter where you are. They've compiled this helpful list of Apps that can be downloaded to either Android or Apple phones to assist you along your wellness journey. Learn to sleep better, breathe more deeply, and be more mindful to become the best you possible!
