Make YOU a priority


Self-care can support a healthy college experience – increasing productivity by stepping away from your to-do list. Sounds like magic, right? 

What are the different types of self-care?

  • Emotional Self-Care means evaluating your emotional well-being. Giving yourself space for self-talk, saying “no” to things that would disrupt your energy flow or cause stress, and going on friend dates are all ways to contribute to your emotional self-care. 
  • Physical Self-Care. Prioritizing sleep, adopting a routine that includes physical activity, and eating a diversity of yummy, nutrient-filled foods are all ways to take care of yourself physically.
  • Spiritual Self-Care can look different for everyone! Spending time in a quiet place, meditating, journaling and incorporating overall peaceful activities into your day can all help with spiritual well-being. 

What does your self-care look like?

What does giving yourself attention and space – just like you do for assignments and others – look like? Use this well-being day to set some daily or monthly wellness goals to help make sure you meet your own needs. Remember that you came to UNC with a host of identities and values outside of school. Ensure you’re supporting your whole self through this journey. 

Some questions to ask yourself:

  • What self-care successes are you proud of so far this semester?
  • What would you like to do more often?
  • What do you need right now?
