Relax. Right here on campus!
The Well is an exciting—and yet relaxing—new initiative designed by the Wellness Centre to help foster resilience through relaxation, rest, and reconnection with what’s important.
CHILL IN A CHAIR.
We are pleased to offer two TruMedic MC-3000 massage chairs that are FREE to use! It is difficult to relax your brain without first relaxing your muscles. So drop in at your leisure and help your body relax for 10 minutes in the chair.
LET THE LIGHT IN.
Suffer with the winter blues? We have a Bright Light Therapy lamp, clinically proven to elevate mood during our long season of grey skies. Drop in for 20 minutes daily to achieve the best results.
TOOLS AND TIPS.
In addition to the massage chairs, we also offer a quiet, comfortable space to relax and spend time reconnecting with what’s important. Sit down, sip some tea, and gaze out to the grassy green between Robson and Douglas as you journal or hold a fidget cube, spinner or squeezie. Slow down and spend some time being creative with our art supplies. Or, if colouring within the lines helps you relax, we’ve got books for that!
University is all about learning. Reading textbooks and writing papers, lab reports and exams are important responsibilities. We want to help you be successful in this area and enrich your academic experience by learning in other areas: Relationships, sex, addiction, grief, transitions, spiritual crises and other topics that are often concerns university students face. We will be offering short-term workshops and groups that fit into your busy schedules.
EXPERIMENT IN ACTION.
We welcome feedback and ideas from students! We’re continually interested in learning about what things you find helpful to relax and rest. Perhaps you’ve found a great stress reduction strategy or a creative exercise that brings you some calm. We’d love to hear from you and explore ways to make your tips and tricks available to other students.
