Tis the season for colds and flus. As the weather begins to change and the semester comes to an end, students around campus find themselves sick and tired. Fortunately the Brock University Student Union (BUSU) is bringing back the 2nd Annual Wellness Week. Wellness Week 2015 is a week long initiative put on by BUSU and other Brock University departments. Wellness Week focuses on the overall health of students and community members through events, advocacy and student engagement. The week will involve the awareness of  Mental Wellness, Physical Wellness, Emotional Wellness, Spiritual Wellness, Lifestyle Wellness & Financial Wellness. These pillars are integral to a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle during your future journey at Brock.

Some awesome events around campus that you can get involved in are:

Sleep Relaxation Rooms~ If you didn’t get enough sleep last night because you were finishing a last minute assignment, you can catch up on some rest and relaxation right here on campus. You can take up to a 50 minute nap in a dimly lit room while listening to calming ocean waves.

Puppy Rooms~ Who doesn’t like cute puppies?! If you’re feeling stressed and maybe missing your pooch back home, take a visit to the Kenmore Center where the St. John Ambulance fills a room with adorable dogs!Puppies and Books

$1 Breakfast~ If you had to skip breakfast this morning to run out and catch the bus for your 8am lecture. Make a pit stop by Issac’s on your way to class to pick up some food for the very low price of $1.

Dan Gheesling~ is a public speaker, entrepreneur, author, coach, and winner of the CBS Reality TV show Big Brother. After competing twice on Reality TV (winning in his first season, and runner up in his second season), Dan now travels across the country speaking about action-based leadership – based on his experiences as an entrepreneur, Reality TV winner and football coach at Michigan State University, where he graduated with a masters degree. Join us at DHOWES between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm to hear Dan speak!

About Vanessa

Hello Future Baby Badgers! My name is Vanessa and I am currently in my fourth year here at Brock University. Brock has been helping me pursue my love of children through their Concurrent Education program, where I am majoring in Physical Education and minoring in General Science. BrockU has become my home away from home with its close-knit community. Let me give you a little more information about myself. In my four years here at Brock I have been able to create a great experience for myself by participating in intramural sports, research studies, SNAP (Special Needs Activity Program), and many other events that happen in and around our beautiful campus. This year I will be working closely with one of my professors as an intern for one of her courses. I can’t wait to blog about all my experiences! Feel free to browse my blog and reply with any comments or questions.
