Emotional Wellness | Sept 10th, 12:30-2:00 | Tivoli 320


Emotional wellness consists of our reactions to situations, internal experiences and our ability to manage these experiences. Facilitators will offer education about how the brain and body respond to stress and why this is important to how we function on a daily basis.  Skills and strategies, such as mindfulness and grounding skills, will be offered to help manage stress and maintain emotional balance.

Spiritual Wellness | Sept 24th, 12:30-2:00 | Tivoli 320


The transition to college, and all the stressors that come with it, may lead one to questioning beliefs and values and looking to connect to a deeper meaning or purpose. Does your sense of spirituality create internal conflicts, or might it be a source of wellness that moves you forward, feeling inspired and renewed? Come explore these ideas and find ways to tap into ” the sacred” in your life to stay balanced  in the face of  challenges that may arise.

Physical Wellness | Oct 8th, 12:30-2:00 | Tivoli 320


Physical activity and nutrition play a major role in how we feel both physically and emotionally.  This event will present information on the benefits of physical activity and healthy eating and sleep habits. Activities will include gentle movement and preparation of a simple healthy snack.

Social Wellness | Oct 23rd, 12:30-2:00 | Tivoli 320


As humans, we are driven towards social connectedness.  Having social relationships increases our ability to manage stress and boosts “feel good” chemicals in our brain.  This workshop will address why it’s important to have social connections, and the mind/body benefits of healthy social relationships.  Students will look at how to build an individualized network of social support.

Wellness Plan | Oct 31st, 12:30-2:00 | Tivoli 320


This workshop will serve as a wrap-up session where students can continue to share their experience and thoughts about the redefined view of wellness.  You will have the opportunity to collaborate with peers and presenters to create your own customized wellness plan designed to work specifically for you.
