LAKERS TOGETHER: Find out information about COVID-19
Environmental wellness inspires us to respect our surroundings and involves feeling and being safe in your current environment. This includes spending time in and having access to places that support your well-being, such as spending time outdoors in nature or attending classes that foster positive learning environments where you feel accepted and welcomed.
Be Environmentally Well
Unplug and Get Outside
- The benefits of getting away from screens and enjoying the outdoors are plentiful. Spending time outside reduces fatigue, improves short-term memory, reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, improves your ability to focus and may also increase your creativity, reduce experiences of depression and anxiety, and protect your vision. Even in the cold Michigan winters it’s important to spend time outside!
Spaces for You
- Environmental wellness also means finding spaces that you feel comfortable in. You may find comfort in a variety of locations around campus: the LGBT Resource Center, the Center for Women and Gender Equity, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the alcohol-free events offered by ACES, the Rec Center, interfaith practice rooms, the Library or even with one of the many student organizations on campus!
