In this issue of the Student Well-being and Resiliency Newsletter, we are focusing on spiritual well-being, a dimension of well-being often overlooked. Cultivating spiritual well-being can have profound benefits on our overall well-being, enhancing mental, emotional, and physical health.

Self-reflection and mindfulness

  • Set aside time each day for self-reflection, mindfulness, or meditation. Reflect on your values, beliefs, and goals, allowing you to stay connected with your inner self.

Practice gratitude

  • Cultivate gratitude by keeping a gratitude journal. Regularly acknowledge and appreciate the positive aspects of your life.

Volunteer and serve others
