The first day of classes is right around the corner! Breaks (be they for winter holidays, in the spring or summer) provide a much needed opportunity to recover and catch your breath, but they also represent a major disruption to your routine. Diving back into the routine can cause anxiety and stress, in this wellness spotlight, we provide guidance and tips to help ease the transition back to campus!

In August's Wellness Spotlight, we provide guidance and tips to help ease the transition back to campus!
