Engage Yourself

Adopt healthy behaviors by participating in a Healthy U sponsored program.

 

Well-Being Tip

Keep yourself mentally healthy: It is normal to feel some level of concern or anxiety in this situation. Think about ways you have dealt with anxiety or stress in the past and be open to exploring some new strategies.  For example, you might talk to a friend or family member, use mindfulness or meditation, read a book, watch an uplifting movie, get some exercise or work in your garden as the temperatures rise. You might find one of these apps helpful: 

- Simple Habit
- Breath & Relax
- Calm
- Insight Timer
