15 Days of self-care

The ninth annual 15 Days of Exams Health Challenge is now underway through to Dec. 20.

[15 Days of Exams Health Challenge]15 Days of Exams is a social media contest, coordinated by Health Promotion in Student Wellness Services, that promotes student self-care. During the 15-day period, Health Promotion’s Be Well social media sites will be posting daily tips and challenges. Each post will address ways to stay healthy during the busy and stressful exam season. Students are encouraged to leave comments about their healthy habits and can win weekly prize baskets by sharing their ideas.

“This challenge was initially developed as a healthier version of an advent calendar,” says Beth Blackett, Health Promotion Coordinator at Student Wellness Services. “We want to encourage students to incorporate daily self-care into what is often a very stressful and perhaps unhealthy time of year.”

The challenges change every year and are created in collaboration with students who work and volunteer with Health Promotion.
