If you love to read, you may already know the many benefits of reading for fun. For instance, one 2009 study from the University of Sussex found that reading for just 6 minutes can significantly reduce stress! Reading also has the power to improve sleep, increase emotional intelligence, and enhance overall wellbeing.
Brock students are invited to sign up for a Wellness Book Club that will run virtually during the month of November. Hosted by Humanities Liaison Librarian, Justine Cotton, the details are as follows:
- Up to 15 students may participate
- Participants will need to visit campus* to pick up the book (the novel Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt)
- The group will have 1-2 online meetings over MS Teams during November to chat about the book
As part of the Club, students will also have the option of participating in a research study exploring the impact of reading on stress levels in university students.
