Social workers can’t help anyone if they are not doing well themselves! Your efforts to keep yourself healthy and happy will make a difference in your own life as well as your career. The resources on this page look at five areas: your physical health, your emotional health, your management of work and school, your relationships, and your attention to your creative or spiritual side. Take a look, and stay “in balance”!


1. Keep your body in balance - eat a healthy diet, stay active, and get adequate rest

2. Manage your emotions - know your coping habits, reduce stress, and get mindful

3. Flourish in work and school - manage your time, get organized, and prevent burnout

4. Enjoy your relationships - your family and friends are there to support you

5. Be creative or spiritual - don't lose sight of the things that feed your soul
