| December 16, 2022

Thanks so much for reading, keep taking good care of yourselves over winter break, and email us at [email protected] if you want to make suggestions or pitch us topics for 2023.

  1. 12 elements of a healthy relationship. This blog post is a repeat champion; it also topped the charts in 2021. We’re so glad to see that so many folks are continuously interested in learning about what makes a relationship a positive force in their lives. Speaking of which…
  2. What are some relationship green flags? Green flags are indicative of healthy behavior in relationships and thinking about them can help you navigate healthy communication, trust, and respect in all types of interpersonal dynamics.
  3. Satisfying grab-and-go snacks. The right snack can be the difference between a day that’s productive and enjoyable, and one plagued by fatigue and grumpiness.
  4. What is self-compassion? Looking for a way to battle impostor syndrome? Try treating yourself with attention, kindness, nurturing, and care. (Also, see No. 8 on this list.)
  5. Free and discounted stuff for students. Our collab with the famous @jhufreestuff IG account is packed with helpful ways to save money.
  6. Subscribe to This Week in Well-Being. Thank you so much to the hundreds of folks who’ve signed up for our weekly newsletter; we’ve got big things planned for 2023. Not yet a subscriber? You can sign up today!
  7. TimelyMD access info and FAQs. One of the things on that free stuff list is TimelyMD, a mental telehealth service available to all Hopkins students and trainees.
  8. An honest reflection on my imposter syndrome and self-doubt. An essay from Sandy Clancy, a KSAS 2022 grad, explains that imposter syndrome is REALLY common at Hopkins.
  9. Call for contributors: Recipes for our community cookbook. We received so many great submissions for this collaborative project, and we’re excited to share the finished product with you in 2023. We originally planned to do it in fall 2022, but we missed our own deadline. And you know what? That’s OK. The cookbook was a stretch project for us. We all occasionally spread ourselves too thin, and miss deadlines and/or have to ask for extensions. It’s a good learning experience to tackle ambitious projects (even if they don’t go as planned), and an important part of growing personally and professionally. We hope all your 2022 stretch projects went great (or were at least interesting when they went wrong).
  10. The Stress and Depression Questionnaire. Since it first launched in November 2018, 4,965 students and trainees have made use of this confidential, convenient, and safe way to learn more about stress and depression.
