We read all the time but when was the last time you prioritized reading for pleasure? Reading is an often overlooked form of self-care, and after another stressful school year, it’s a great way to unwind and relax.

Student Health and Wellness wants to encourage you to take time to read for the sake of reading by offering a WellU Shelf-Care summer challenge. Set your own goal and read whatever you like, this is a judgment-free zone (we don't even care if it's an audiobook)

Join our Goodreads group and you will be able to set your reading goal, share and review your reads, and make and seek recommendations.

Don't abandon physical activity this exam season! Research shows that physical exercise releases proteins in the brain that can actually help improve your memory and increase your cognitive performance. This is because the hippocampus, the area of our brain that is involved with retaining information is incredibly responsive to these proteins.  So whether you’re revising for an exam or finishing a project, you’ll be able to take in and retain what you learn much more easily if you have been doing some regular exercise.

Tag or DM @lakeheadcampusrec (TBay) or @thunderwolvesor (OR) in any of your workouts over the exam period (April 9-24) to get the chance to win some Athletics and Student Health and Wellness Swag.
