ENVIRONMENTAL WELLNESS is creating or finding spaces where you live, work and study that help you feel motivated to reach your goals.
Signs of Environmental Wellness
- Being aware of the limits of the earth's natural resources
- Conserving energy (i.e. shutting off unused lights)
- Recycling paper, cans, and glass as much as possible
- Enjoying and appreciating time outside in natural settings
- Not polluting the air, water or earth
- Creating home and work environments that are supportive and nurturing
Check in with your environmental wellness:
- Is your room a place that you feel comfortable, safe and at ease in?
- Do you have mementos of things that are important to you?
- Do you find time to explore nature?
- When you think about coming to UNH, where do you think you would like to study?
Since studying will be your main job at UNH, finding an environment that allows you to focus and be productive will be key. This may be your room, study lounge, library, or another place on campus. If you haven't already, explore and find one or more study spaces that works for you.
