Wellness at ASU Library

Sharing wellness resources and activities for students to do in times of stress, especially around Finals Week!

About This Guide

Welcome to the Wellness at ASU Library Guide! If you landed on this guide, it may mean that you would like to learn more about wellness or access wellness resources.

Wellness refers to overall well-being. Wellness is the process of practicing healthy habits to attain good health. Wellness not only encompasses physical and mental health (like good exercise, sleep, mindfulness and nutrition), but also social connectedness (or, interactions with the people or groups who matter most). Emphasizing wellness in everyday routine can positively impact how we live and how we overcome challenges in life and in academics.

Whether you live at one of ASU's campuses or reside outside of ASU, feel free to visit these resources throughout the semester or in times of high stress.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
