Healthy Body Healthy Mind

A toolkit of wellness resources for EFSC students

Having a healthy mind is key to your overall health and well-being — and research has shown that a healthy body plays a key role in your mental health. Making time for recreation and creative activities plays an important role in developing the physical and mental resiliency you need to cope with the challenges of being a college student, including academic pressure, social demands, and financial stress.

Use the resources on this toolkit page to help you enjoy the benefits that come from a positive connection between a healthy body and mind, especially around stressful exam times and deadlines. Plus check the buildings on your campus for our new digital messaging screens with timely updates on events and info to help you achieve a healthy, successful collegiate experience.
