I chose to teach my students about health and wellness in college. I know from experience that being a Speech and Hearing Science student can make it difficult to focus on anything besides classes, so I wanted to emphasize how important it is to find balance in life. The research I found supports this and emphasizes the idea that there is no perfect equilibrium, and instead encourages finding an overall sense of living life fully ( Stoewen, 2017). Many students have the preconceived notion that if they go to the gym, attend classes, and find time to socialize, this will give them a feeling of self-fulfillment.
