Weekly Wellness Staples

True self-care is the building a life you don’t have to escape from. It is the intentional creation of daily habits and practices that take care of your holistic self to keep you healthy and well. To encourage that habitual and regular self-care practice, we have Weekly Wellness Staples. Check them out below!

You’ll also get free swag for taking care of yourself!

  • When you come to your first staple event, you’ll get a drawstring bag!
  • When you come to your third staple event, you’ll get a water bottle!
  • When you come to your fifth staple event, you’ll get an exercise/yoga mat!

Start your week off right by heading to this class from 10:00am – 10:30am. We start slow as we ease out of the weekend and we finish class stretched and energized and ready to tackle the week ahead! Bring an exercise/yoga mat or towel. All bodies and exercise levels are welcome. Class takes place in the Bickman Multipurpose Room inside the gym.

Come be a part of the walking group! If you struggle with the motivation to get yourself outdoors or exercising solo, join us every Wednesday to walk a mile loop around campus with a group! All bodies and walking paces are welcome. We meet at 3pm at the corner of Main Street and Woodland Street, right near Annie’s. Come take advantage of getting outdoors, moving your body, and getting social!

Meditation has been shown to have an incredible range of physical and mental health benefits including improving sleep, reducing physical pain, decreasing blood pressure, reducing stress and anxiety, improving focus and attention span, and increasing self-awareness, just to name a few. Come every Thursday from 1:30-2:00pm in the Bickman Multipurpose Room to see why this ancient practice is gaining so much popularity.  You’ll be led through a guided practice that will start with a mindfulness practice to breathe, ground, and center us, a focused meditation practice, and end with a moment of stillness and quiet just for you. Bring a blanket, towel, yoga mat, etc. if you would like for your comfort.
