On each Thursday of the month, the Department of Health and Wellness will host a Thoughtful Thursday event. These events will focus on individual holistic health development and will take place at a different location each Thursday. Check out The Source Calendar for more information on each activity.
Join us for Thoughtful Thursday – Mindfulness Minute on the first Thursday of the month in the Student Center, Room 3104. Mindfulness Minute will be a drop-in session focusing on mindfulness. In this session, students will have the opportunity to learn how to use a labyrinth for walking meditation, how to meditate for stress relief, and how to show gratitude through journaling or sharing appreciation with others. This is a drop-in session, so come at your leisure.
The Counseling Center is partnering with Health Promotion and Wellness for Thoughtful Thursdays. Every 2nd Thursday of the month, come see us in the Student Center Plaza for a peaceful pause to learn more about incorporating mindfulness into your daily routine.
Is your mind full or are you mindful while eating? This one-hour lunch and learn presentation reviews the benefits and components of mindful eating and walks participants through a mindful eating experience while they eat their lunch. *A small food item will be provided for the mindfulness activity if a participant does not bring their lunch to the session. Check The Source events calendar for room location.
Pulling from research based on forest bathing and mindfulness, this program was developed to encourage participants to incorporate stress management into their daily lives. Research shows that spending a small amount of time in nature can positively impact one’s health. Couple that research with mindfulness practices and a simple, guided 30-minute walk can be a nice boost to your day. The walk will include a stroll around campus, incorporating breathing exercises and focusing on the beautiful natural surroundings of the campus. A 10-minute presentation introduces these concepts and kicks off the walk.
