Healthy Brain, Healthy Mind

As a college student myself once, I know all too well how stressful, overwhelming, and anxiety-producing attending university can be—especially during these challenging times.

Even as adults, we still require tools and strategies for managing stress and coping with uncertainty. If you can relate to any or more of the following right now, you’re not alone!

  • Fear and worry about your own health or that of your loved ones
  • Coping with the sudden changes to your routine or disruption to your schedule
  • Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
  • Experiencing grief or feelings of hopelessness
  • Anxiety over employment, income, or your future

As part of Chapman’s continued commitment to your health and wellness, we are excited for the return of the popular Healthy Brain, Healthy Mind  series to help you nurture calm and navigate change.

Join Dr. Jay Kumar, Director of Contemplative Practices & Wellbeing, for a weekly program offering advice, Q&A, interviews, and tools applying science-based strategies and timeless wisdom to promote your emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.

All episodes will be recorded and supplemented by a podcast, short video, and blog post. Open to All: students, staff, faculty and the
