Missed anything from today’s Destress Fest? Enjoy this recap and then be sure to join us tomorrow!
Need some humor to start the day? How about a cheesy Dad Joke? Check our DeStress Fest webpage at 9:00 a.m. every weekday for a new joke to groan at!
What does an atom say when it loses an electron?
“Man, I really gotta keep an ion them!”
At 11:00 a.m. join us for a Live guided meditation session! A representative from Student Wellness will lead you through guided meditation to help you relax, so you are ready to face the rest of the day! Don’t worry if you haven’t tried meditation before, the sessions are short – 10 to 15 minutes. And no, you don’t have to be able to sit in a lotus position to participate! This is a live session so registration is required – you’ll get an email with the session’s link an hour before the session begins. Register here for tomorrow’s session! The representative will be available for questions following the session. Today’s session was led by JoAnn Daehler-Miller and focused on an exercise which is useful for high stress and anxiety times. It helps with focus, but also provides energy to help finish that paper or project! Register for tomorrow and see what helpful mindfulness practice will be presented!
Need a snack boost in the afternoon? We’ve got you covered, there, too! Every week day at 1:00 p.m. a new Cake in a Mug recipe will be posted! We encourage you to try the recipes and then go to our DeStress Fest page and post a picture of your creation – the crazier the mug, the better!
Today’s recipe is for a yummy Coffee Cake in a Mug – this recipe also includes instructions on how to make it gluten-free! We want to see your results – so post your photos here. The crazier the mug – the better!!!
Today’s quote is from Nelson Mandela. “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.”
Do you have a quote that you have found to be especially helpful? We have a board where you can share it. It might just be what someone else needs to hear!
AND!!! Friday, May 8, at 2:00 p.m. (CDT) we will have a Live “Show and Tail” event! Register here and then share that “co-worker” who is keeping you company! All pets with tails are welcome – fish, lizards, birds, cats, dogs, turtles, whatever is keeping you company now! Zoom meeting information will be sent to registrants an hour before “Show and Tail!”
Can’t make Show and Tail? We have a board where we encourage you to post pictures of that special pet that is driving your crazy or making you smile!
