Stress-Less Week Update!

Stress-Less Week Update!

This week (November 28 to December 2) is Stress-Less Week at GPRC!

stress-less-week-web-graphics-01

It’s when GPRC offers a number of ways for students to beat stress during the final crunch time of the semester.

So far we’ve:

  • Had an Introduction to Breathing Practice with Julia from Satori Yoga & Healing Arts where we learned about how mindfulness is scientifically proven to have incredible health benefits!
  • Enjoyed a health break, with Fresh Fruit being passed around campus and
  • Got to get creative with GPRC Education Ambassador and GPRC Fine Arts student, Danielle Ribar. Students were able to create, hang-out and most importantly relax with a painting and book nook activity.

Today, GPRC had several furry friends visit us on campus to give students a chance to cuddle and forget pre-exam blues.

Our pals at St. John’s Ambulance were able to bring in two therapy dogs, Rusty (a Border Collie/Australian Sheppard mix) and Jack (a Pitbull mix) for students to hang out with.

Although, we couldn’t tell who was having more fun? The students or Jake with all the belly rubs!

A huge thank you to GPRC Student Wellness for organizing this great event!

Then from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., we had furry feline friends visit us from our GPRC Fairview Campus. Dash, Dancer, Polly, Sherman and Yodi are all roughly 7 months old, and are cared and looked after by our GPRC Animal Health Technology program. These 6 bundles of joy joined us for a couple hours, and students were able to play, interact and cuddle every single one of them. What was even more exciting was letting our students know that these adorable balls of fur were available for adoption!

The best moment of the day was meeting Robyn, a GPRC student who recently adopted Dancer! Check it out!
