chillWELL

chillWELL, beat stress and optimize your well-being, quality of life and performance.

According to a recent AP-mtvU poll, 85% of college students report feeling stressed daily. The good news is that transforming stress is very doable. Simple activities that are easy to learn can dramatically change the way someone perceives stress. As little as two minutes a day of training your brain to scan the world for the positive and express gratitude can be effective at changing stress levels. WELLWVU’s website has interactive games and articles related to stress management and chill “wellcasts,” for stress reduction here.
