Engwell Tips


We’re inviting all Smith Engineering students to join us on the most science-based meditation app available, Headspace, and let it assist you with your work-life balance goals, including managing stress, anxiety, getting better sleep, and more.

Set up your Headspace account and start meditating!

Feeling anxious before tests and exams? Feeling that extra bit of energy before an evaluation can help us be sharper and more alert, but too much energy can negatively affect our concentration.

If you are finding yourself with too much worry before a test, check out some of the resources for test anxiety through SASS.

Don’t have time to eat when studying? For many students, it is hard to find the time to prepare healthy meals when you have so many assignments and projects due. But did you know eating healthy is linked to better study habits, improved retention, and faster information processing? Try smaller snacks throughout the day or meal prepping- it can be a real time-saver and lead to overall more nutritious meal choices.
