Taking Care of Yourself
Take care of yourself. Do your best to maintain a healthy lifestyle
this semester by eating well, exercising, avoiding drugs and alcohol,
getting enough sleep and taking some time to relax. This will help you
achieve your goals and cope with stress.
All of us benefit from support during times of struggle. You are not
alone. There are many helpful resources available on campus and an
important part of the college experience is learning how to ask for
help. Asking for support sooner rather than later is often helpful.
If you or anyone you know experiences any academic stress,
difficult life events, or feelings like anxiety or depression, we
strongly encourage you to seek support. Counseling and
Psychological Services (CaPS) is here to help: call 412-268-2922
and visit their website at http://www.cmu.edu/counseling/
reaching out to a friend, faculty or family member you trust for
help getting connected to the support that can help.
