Mental Health Tip

Create good habits

Using this time to create good habits is an amazing mental health tip. In the same way that our mind has an affect on our body, our physical health affects our mental health. Our sleep, exercise, and nutrition can affect our mental state. Try getting to bed ten minutes early every night, taking a walk, participating in wellness activities for college students on your campus or another physical activity in your community, and practicing healthy eating. Creating good habits surrounding sleep, physical activity, and nutrition can contribute to good mental health and physical health during times of stress. A healthy diet and regular exercise can have a significant impact on you.

National Anxiety and Depression Week

“Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” –Corrie Ten Boom

Many individuals struggle with anxiety and depression. Know that you are not alone and that help is available to you if you need it.


Congratulations on your accomplishments and good luck during the next chapter of your life. Remember that even as VT alumni, we can be Better Together.

Mental Health Tip


Listen to music.

Music affects our emotions and can be extremely helpful in extremely stressful situations. Soothing music can slow heart rate and lower blood pressure to distract us from our worries. #VTBetterTogether

Mental Health Tip


Avoid Procrastination.

One way to control stress is to stay on top of your priorities. Worrying about something that you need to do takes a lot of energy. Procrastinating undesirable tasks takes more effort than just doing them. Book a library session with your favorite study buddy. #VTBetterTogether
