Prioritize Your Wellness in 2023
Do you like to make New Year’s resolutions? Many people aren’t into that sort of thing, viewing it as a useless or fruitless activity since the resolutions are so difficult to keep. Often the difficulty comes from creating resolutions that are too ambiguous, or too ambitious. Good resolutions, like good goals, should be specific, attainable, and measurable (S-A-M).
Whatever goals you may have for 2023, we hope you’ll make a point to prioritize your wellness in this new year. TTUHSC provides many resources to enhance your wellness, both while you’re a student at our university and beyond in your healthcare career. The current Quality Enhancement Plan, Well Beyond, is dedicated to promoting and enhancing your wellness.This Live Well website identifies many of the wellness resources available to TTUHSC students. Here also you will find many great tips for enhancing your wellness across the eight dimensions of wellness.
The English poet Robert Browning wrote, “A man’s reach should exceed his grasp!” We hope that you’ll continue to reach far as you prepare yourself for an exciting career in healthcare. Prioritizing your wellness is an important step you can take to help you achieve your goals and realize your dreams!
