Summer of Well-Being

The academic year can be stressful. Summer is a time to enjoy longer days, bright sunshine and a quieter campus. University Health Services invites you to take the time to refill your cup and engage in activities designed to improve mindfulness and enhance well-being.

Summer of Well-Being Kickoff

Join University Health Services and partners as we launch into a summer of well-being and self-care. This event includes Yoga with Clare and guided meditation - no experience necessary!

Bring your mat/towel and water bottle, and enjoy some restoration while learning about summer mindfulness and well-being events.

    Take a mindful walk

    Walking is a no-impact activity that can be done anywhere. Use this time to notice your surroundings. 

  • Notice your experience

    Be fully present with the aroma, texture and taste of your morning coffee or tea.

    Practice yoga with Clare

    Yoga provides strength, flexibility, and the opportunity to find stillness and presence of mind.

    Take 5 deep breaths

    Take deep, intentional breaths. Close your eyes and feel the sensation of breath moving in your body as your lungs expand and contract. 

  • Make a gratitude list

    Research shows us that regularly expressing gratitude improves one’s sense of happiness and well-being.

    Embrace your inner child and enjoy a cool treat. Notice what memories or feelings of nostalgia rise to the surface.

 


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
