The Division of Student Affairs recognizes 9 different dimensions of wellness that focus on you as a whole person. We believe an environment that encourages healthy behaviors and wellness is essential to the academic success and holistic well-being of the members of our community — no matter where you are! Here are 9 simple ways to exercise each dimension of your holistic wellness:
Laughter relaxes the whole body and boosts your
30 minutes of physical activity a day releases endorphins that increase your mood, sleep, and productivity.
Getting involved outside of the classroom and
being an active member of a community can help you develop
a sense of belonging.
Regular engagement in contemplative practice, such as journaling, reflection, meditation, yoga, dialogue, or labyrinth walking, promotes self-awareness and enhances the capacity for connection.
You are an instrumental member of the FSU community and make a positive impact when you uphold our values and model the behavior you wish to see in the world.
Reading for fun or playing a board game increases knowledge and skills in order to live a stimulating and successful life.
Engaging with career services at Florida State University can result in significant and positive outcomes including decreased anxiety and confidence in next steps.
Developing financially smart habits during college is a valuable investment to achieve your future goals. Make an appointment with a CHAW Wellness Coach to start the conversation.
Perceiving something as "stressful" can lead to more mental and physical health concerns than the stressful event itself. The skill of mindfulness can help you reinterpret events and respond with purpose instead of reacting based on emotions.
Live Well! FSU represents one of the four focus areas of the Florida State University
Division of Student Affairs.
