Lakeland is dedicated to helping students become successful, not only in achieving their educational goals, but also in maintaining their own well-being.
Headspace Mindfulness App
Lakeland is excited to launch a partnership with Headspace, your personal meditation guide. Students have free access to the entire Headspace library through Dec. 31, 2023.
Mindfulness has been shown to help people stress less, increase focus and sleep more soundly. The Headspace app offers hundreds of meditations and exercises for sleep, focus and movement. These meditation and mindfulness tools help you create life-changing habits to support your mental health and find a healthier, happier you.
Download the Headspace app today. Start by creating a Headspace account and verifying your Lakeland email address.
Lakeland has created two indoor and two outdoor relaxation zones where students can unwind, de-stress, engage in arts and crafts activities, meditate, and explore wellness apps. The indoor relaxation zones are located in the Lakeland Library (anytime it is open) and Counseling and Advising Center (during limited hours). Outdoor relaxation zones are located near the Mindladders sculpture outside Breakers and in the main campus courtyard under the trees.
Other existing wellness zones at Lakeland include the Athletic and Fitness Center, Lakeland Cares Cupboard, HIVE, H-building third floor greenhouse and rooftop garden, and Mooreland gardens, to name a few. Take some time to explore spaces on Lakelands campus that can contribute to your wellness.
We can all benefit from wellness activities every day, especially during stressful times. Lakeland students are invited to access our online guide that offers a wide range of mental health and resilience information and resources. This collection of reliable and helpful websites and videos was compiled and created by Lakeland's Mental Health Task Force.
Complete our online Student Wellness Interest Form to find out how we can help you enhance your physical, emotional, social, financial, occupational and intellectual wellness. You will receive an email response containing information on campus and community resources specific to the wellness areas you are interested in.
Students completing the form will be entered into a drawing to win a 36 oz. Yeti stainless steel insulated water bottle.
Below is a listing of courses offered at the college to enhance physical, emotional, financial, career, relationship and mental wellness.
Note: As always, students should consult with a counselor and/or financial aid officer to select electives that will support their personal and educational objectives or meet financial aid requirements.
Skills for Self-Care and Resilience – COUN 1050 (1 credit hour)
This course offers students the opportunity to learn about and try out a variety of activities and practices that promote self-care and resilience. We will explore ways of managing stress, persevering when faced with adversity, and maintaining balance.
