Lift Up

Lifting Up a fellow Cardinal is one way you can make a difference. We all need a hand when life’s circumstances challenge us. The Lift Up campaign is a student driven campaign to remind us we are a community of caring Cards.

Creating Emotional Health on Campus

Emotional health starts with you. Emotional well-being encompasses how you feel about yourself, your ability to successfully manage your feelings as you deal with life's challenges, and the quality of your relationships. Being emotionally balanced can contributes greatly to your overall mental and physical health.

Signs of Emotional Health

Being emotionally healthy is more than simply being free from depression, anxiety, or other psychological issues; it also refers to the presence of positive characteristics, including:

  • The ability to adapt to change
  • A sense of purpose
  • A feeling of completeness and contentment
  • The ability to create fulfilling relationships
  • A feeling of self-confidence and positive self-esteem
  • The ability to have fun and enjoy yourself
  • Resiliency in the face of difficulties

Ways to Improve your Emotional Health

  • Express feelings in an appropriate way to others and seek assistance if needed
  • Create balance in your life
  • Develop resilience
  • Calm your mind and body through Koru or other mindfulness techniques
  • Take care of yourself by getting regular physical activity, eat healthy meals that give you good nutrition, and get quality sleep, avoid overeating and consuming too much alcohol
