Show some love this Valentine’s Day by practicing patience and compassion with yourself.

As Week 6 approaches, midterms loom and pressures begin to mount. It’s important to make a conscious effort to prioritize your well-being and avoid burnout. To help, here are some awesome events taking place on Wednesday February 14th in support of a mentally healthy community. 

1. Virtual Meditation:

York University’s Healthy Student Initiative (HSI) is offering daily mindfulness meditation sessions. On Wednesdays, sessions are offered exclusively online.

What does that mean? You can access live meditation sessions from anywhere. Slip in some headphones, or set up shop in a quiet corner at home. Half hour sessions take participants through a relaxing guided meditation, designed to help you feel uplifted and calm.

2. Maddy the Therapy Dog: Valentine’s Day Visit

If you’re looking for a Valentine, you’ve got one. She’s sweet, fluffy and an instant mood-booster! Maddy the St. John’s Ambulance therapy dog will return to Schulich on February 14th.

Unfamiliar with therapy dogs? They’re often used to provide comfort and calm to people suffering from isolation and anxiety. St. John’s Ambulance began their Therapy Dog program in 1992 and it has continued to grow over the years. It now includes visits to college and university campuses, senior facilities and children’s schools.

3. Week 6: GBC #Schulax Snow Challenge

You may remember that the GBC was there to support you during Week 6 of Fall Term. Now that Winter Week 6 is here, the GBC is back with another #Schulax event!

Blow off some steam with the GBC in the Schulich Courtyard outside the Marketplace! The GBC will be holding a Snowball Accuracy Challenge with prizes to be won. (You may even get a chance to dust a few GBC execs)!
