ERASE the STIGMA: There is nothing cool, strong, or hero-worthy about not sleeping or eating

1 November 2017

Project LETS presents www.LetsEraseTheStigma.com

 

not healthy flyer

There is nothing cool, strong, or hero-worthy about not sleeping or eating.

It’s midterm season for many students – which can encourage a disturbing culture of not sleeping, eating, or taking care of oneself: and pushing one’s body and mind to total burnout or point of breakdown.

This is not healthy or okay.

Encourage yourself & folks around you to:

  • Check in with each other on a genuine level
  • Hold space for conversations outside of academics
  • Bring each other snacks/drinks/meals
  • Not compare/discuss grades
  • Take breaks! Do fun things!
  • Be honest about your schedules – are you over-committed? Are you taking too many classes? Is there anything you can cut?
  • Not glamorize unhealthy behaviors, such as not sleeping or eating. Don’t be afraid to check in with friends privately & directly to let them know you are concerned.
