Do Something Fun
My best friend has never picked up a paint brush before. I paint all the time, and he compliments me, but this past weekend I asked him to paint with me. It was a lot of fun; my favorite things to paint are usually animals and abstract portraits — I tried to do something a little different and paint a universe scenery. It turned out awful, but the process was fun. I was really proud of Ashton — he painted a bird silhouette (and gave it to his mom as a present… she loved it!)

I first made my mind map on paper, and then transferred it to the digital version.

- Emotional Health — Means of Outlets
I think this is a very important area to explore because handling emotions in a healthy manner is very important to learn. This subcategory also allows for a lot of ideas to be explored because there are many outlets a person can find — whether its sports or arts or music or journaling.
- Mental Health — Yoga and Meditation
Yoga and meditation are becoming more and more popular and studies repeatedly show how good it is for mental health. It calms a person and teaches stress management, which as college students, is very useful to have. Your stress levels have a huge impact on your overall health, as too much stress can lead to unhealthy choices and mannerisms.
- Exercise — Outdoorsy Activities
Exercise is good for both physical health and mental health. However, personally I believe that exercising outdoors is the best of both worlds. Being in nature clears the mind and can help a person become more focused. Being more focused leads to clear decision making, and once again, less stress.
