Your well-being matters.
Whether you are a new or returning student, the life of an aspiring engineer includes a lot of changes. That's why the Faculty of Engineering has put in place an Engineering Wellness Program for students and staff.
The university experience can be filled with excitement, relationships, learning, but also stress. For some it may be the first time living away from home, moving to a new city, being in charge of your schedule, meeting new people, as well as being challenged with lab assignments and numerous deadlines.
One of the most helpful things a student can do to manage stress is to engage in regular self-care:
- Create a regular schedule – aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night, eat a balanced diet, and do physical activities you enjoy.
- Try different activities to relax - walk, journal, enjoy nature, listen to music, meditate, take study breaks.
- Socialize with people you enjoy spending time with such as friends or family.
