A No-BS GUIDE FOR MANAGING PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH ON CAMPUS
Every fall, around two million young adults crash into college fired up for the best four years of their lives, ready to experience campus life, take classes about things they’re interested in, and meet people from all over the world. Most students, however, are better prepared to pick their major or talk to strangers than they are to take care of themselves in the college setting.
Here we share our relatable true stories—ranging from the ridiculous to the serious—to discuss the five biggest health obstacles students face in college. On top of research-backed tips and helpful, interactive graphics, we also feature raw and personal advice from current students on college campuses across the country. The Greatest Health Guide You Never Knew You Needed is a complete road map for how to take care of your mind and body that will not only set students up to crush the next four years but will also provide a foundation they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.
"There is no scarcity of health information in print. As a health educator, psychology professor, and researcher, I have read hundreds of books, research articles, and other media designed to share essential health information. However I have yet to come across such a strong compendium of all the essential information on key topics in one place: diet, exercise, sleep hygiene, stress and time management, social media and relationships, alcohol use and abuse, as well as mental health issues like managing depression. The information is science-based and resounds with common-sense strategies. The Greatest College Health Guide is adeptly voiced for its target audience. Here is a book that feels genuinely authentic about what students face, brought to life with frank anecdotes from the authors and quotes from the students at colleges across the country. A wonderfully smart, funny, highly readable, and relatable book."
