Helpful Programs & Services

Remember that breathing exercises, stretching or a going for a 10-minute walk are effective and energizing. Keeping perspective, recognizing what you can change, positive self-talk (“Yes, I can do this!”) and putting yourself in a healthier place physically and/or emotionally will help you be at your best.

If you’re experiencing any distress, tell someone. Our caring professionals inCounseling & Psychological Services are available to listen. Asking for help takes courage, but it can make all the difference. It’s important to remember you’re not alone.

I wish you and the entire Husker community a wonderful end of the semester!
