As fall settles in, so do unfortunate things like awkward weather-shifts, flu season and midterms. In the midst of crazy transitions, it is important to remember the value of staying both physically and mentally well. To help, Beach Balance has a number of events and programs this month with opportunities to pursue holistic health and wellness!
- Art Therapy
Every Tuesday in November | SRWC Beach Balance
If you’re feeling stressed out, you can stop by Beach Balance to draw, color, write letters and express yourself through art. This is a space to disengage, reflect, heal, boost your mood and simply relax.
Nov. 13, Dec. 11 | 6 – 7 p.m. | SRWC Beach Balance
These informative sessions allow you to learn about rollerball blends, essential oils, sanitizers, scrubs and other aroma compounds for the purpose of heightening mood or helping you relax. This is a great resource for tools to destress or serve therapeutic purposes. You can even walk away with your own customized oil blend!
- Food for Thought
Nov. 6, Dec. 4 | 4 – 6 p.m. | SRWC Lobby
Every first Monday of the month, Beach Balance hosts a healthy snack station to provide you with free food and nutrition information. You can properly fuel before and after your workout, and receive any information from nutrition/dietetics students at the event.
- Night of Relaxation
Dec. 6 | 6:30 – 8 p.m. | SRWC Beach Balance
Held in partnership with the fitness department, this annual event is a huge hit among students. This is an excellent opportunity to relax yourself before finals by partaking in yoga and an extended meditation session.
