Giving your body the nutrients and wholesome foods it needs is an easy way to care for your mental health too. Take time today to nourish your body with a satisfying meal (maybe even try to eat the colors of the rainbow!) or drink an extra glass of water. #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth

Did you know rest helps restore your body’s energy and triggers the release of hormones that effect growth and appetite? Making time to unwind can relieve stress and anxiety and can also improve your mood. Take time today to rest, meditate, or take a break to relax and do something you enjoy.

You might already know that exercise is good for your body. But did you know it can also relieve stress, improve memory, help you sleep better, and boost your overall mood? Take time today to go for a walk (bonus points for taking a friend or a pet!), ditch the elevator for the stairs, or get adventurous and try a video workout like yoga or dancing.

We are looking for more senators - represent your school or department in the Graduate Student Government. It will allow you to network across campus, join university wide committees, and gain leadership skills. Most importantly, you can make a positive change.
