The academic year is drawing to a close and the most important thing any of us can do for ourselves is to take stock and prioritize ourselves and our own well-being. You can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself. So #CheckOnYourUCrew and check-in with yourself.
“If we lack wellness in the different areas of our life, it can be a challenge to feel fulfilled,” said Brittany Badger, director of the Center for Student Wellness. “Wellness is a foundational concept. It can be difficult to prioritize your own self-care needs. But when you take the time to take care of yourself, you’ll find that your capacity to care for others can increase and you feel more fulfilled.
Everyone’s wellness journey is unique. As we explore our own personal wellness, it’s important to remember that being well looks different for everyone and that these dimensions of wellness are interconnected, active and dynamic. Recognizing areas of our wellness that are thriving and those that may need additional support can help us seek the resources we need and take positive steps to become better.
Over the summer the following resources never stop providing support for the University of Utah community. So, continue with the important work of #CheckOnYourUCrew.
