Abstract/Description

Coursework, family responsibilities, and concerns over economic stability can contribute to high levels of stress and anxiety among college students. The concept of self-care has been previously studied in different populations and has shown positive results concerning the mitigation of stress and anxiety; however, self-care may not always be prioritized in the daily lives of college students. Despite the benefits, relatively little is known about how often college students perform self-care and what effects this behavior may have on their mental well-being. Therefore, the goal of this study is to examine the relationship between physical activity, a key component of self-care, and the daily stressors affecting college student’s mental health and well-being.
