Healthy Living

No matter what stage you are in your life, it is important to take care of yourself- mind, body, and spirit.


Physical Well-Being

Eating a well-balanced diet and staying physically active is important for long-term health. Not only will you feel better, but it also helps decrease the likelihood of developing heart disease, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, among other ailments. For information about specific health concerns, we have listed resources in the 'Awareness Days & Months' section of this page or more importantly, consult your physician.

Psychological Well-Being

Psychological health includes our emotional, mental, and social well-being and affects how we think, feel, and act. Having a strong, positive psychological well-being is important because it helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. The Women's Center has many resources on psychological well-being, including information about dealing with stress, eating disorders, and mood disorders.

If you are a UD student and you need to talk to someone or are worried about a friend, the counseling center at UD has experienced, professional psychologists and staff who can help. Learn more about the Counseling Center >>

UD faculty and staff can contact the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for information about psychological well-being.

Spiritual Well-Being

The Women's Center contributes to UD's mission to be a strong, diverse, and inclusive community by creating a welcoming and safe space for persons of different racial, social, gender, religious, and cultural backgrounds to explore and incorporate faith-based living into their everyday lives.
