Wellness and Mindfulness

What Does Wellness and Mindfulness Mean?

Dr. John Kabat-Zinn calls mindfulness "paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, nonjudgmentally." 

Life, in short, can be stressful. You can have school, work, taking care of your family, chores, bills, and everything else going on. When life gets busy and stressful, it can seem like there is no time to even catch your breath.

It may seem counter-productive at times like these, but taking time to take care of your mental, emotional, and physical wellness is equally as important as time to study and work. Without caring for your health, you may find yourself feeling run-down, tired, or burnt out. Self-care is important during your time as a student, and throughout your lifetime. We hope you’ll find resources in this guide to connect you with health, wellness, and happiness!
