August 2021 Stall Talk

Student Health and Wellness Programs Stall Talk: Welcome Back!

Start the semester off right:

  • Get Organized: Create a journal or a calendar to note important events, like class schedule, extracurricular activities and even homework and project deadlines.
  • Maintain Balance: Carve out time for fun & relaxation. Studies show that taking a break makes you more productive in the long run.
  • Stay Healthy: Find time to be physically active and eat healthy foods to stay energized, focused and balanced throughout the day.
  • Be Responsible: Ask questions, be proactive and minimize distractions so you can stay ahead of your projects and reduce everyday stressors.
  • Find Connections: Get involved with campus or community activities to encourage supportive friendships. Counseling Services is also here to support you either on campus or virtually (within the state of Hawaii).

TalkCampus is here to help you:

It’s tough being a student and we know that you don’t always want to talk to Counseling Services about how you’re feeling. That’s why we’ve launched TalkCampus. An app where you can talk with other students from around the world if you’re struggling and worried about your mental health. Your student email address will give you free access, just download TalkCampus from the app stores. It’s a place just for you, no staff, no fear of judgement, just instant ongoing support. Check out more details and get connected today!
