Wellness Coaching Self-Awareness Worksheet

This worksheet provides a framework to help students identify triggers for behaviors or thought patterns that they wish to change, the thoughts, feelings and behaviors associated with those triggers, and the positive and negative outcomes that result from them. Invite students to reflect on a situation that they find difficult or challenging.

Navigating Religious Resources on Campus

The Trotter Multicultural Center has put together an “Interfaith Resource Page” to help students, instructors, staff, and other U-M community members navigate some of the faith-based and interfaith resources available on and off campus.

Feeling and Emotion Wheel

This diagram allows students to more easily identify the nuances of their feelings or emotions in any given moment. Shaped like a wheel, it helps students to identify their feelings beyond common, more general terms such as “happy,” “sad,” or “scared”. Encourage students to explore the range of terms linked to the main, central term that they may be experiencing and to notice that they can feel more than one emotion at a time.

Circles of Control, Influence, and Concern

Use this diagram to structure conversations with students who are experiencing stress, anxiety, or overwhelm. Have the student identify the parts that they cannot control, i.e. in their circle of concern. Second, have the student identify what parts of the situation may fall into the circle of influence and in their circle of control.
