Description

This study explored college students’ self-care practices, self-care perceptions, and academic success perceptions. Research suggests that self-care activities can be helpful in alleviating school-related stress. Researchers were interested in learning if there are correlations between self-care practices, self-care perceptions, and academic success. One hundred and twelve undergraduate students from Winthrop University participated in a survey measuring their recent self-care activities, self-care perceptions, and academic success perceptions. Results showed that, although college students in this sample value self-care and believe engaging in self-care is helpful in alleviating school-related stress, they do not regularly engage in self-care practice. Further research is needed in the area of self care and academic success, as well as promotion of self-care practices among college students.
