Wellness

Arc's goal is to put your health and happiness first.

"But what does that actually mean?" you say. Well, good thing you asked! Arc Wellness is working towards raising awareness around mental health, helping students de-stress, and provide resources to foster your well-being.

Look out for Arc Wellness Warriors around campus from chill out zones, yoga classes to puppy rooms and massages. We're here to help you get through the day. 

Meet your Wellness Student Coordinator

How hard is it to hold a glass of water for a minute? How much harder is it to hold it for an hour? What if you had to hold it for the whole day? The longer you hold the glass of water the heavier it seems to become until you simply can’t keep it up! 

Welcome to Arc Wellness, your very own student support team to help you learn how to deal with those heavy glasses! My name is Courtney and I’m the Wellness Coordinator. I’m a third year Psychology student and a total sports fanatic! I’m excited to make my passion for Wellness contagious and bring fresh events your way to help you de-stress and take care of yourself amongst the chaos of life as a Uni student. Sometimes it’s the simple things that put a huge smile on my face, like receiving a thank-you letter or hearing a nice compliment, and I want to pass this same happiness on! So be sure to come along to our Pop-Up stalls and checkout our Wellness video series for that taste of calm amongst what can sometimes feel like a storm. Remember you can’t fill from an empty cup, take time to put your health and happiness first!

Tips to increase your overall Wellness 

  • Remember you are unique and have your own needs. Identify your needs so you don’t feel the pressure to conform to situations and environments that don’t suit you.
  • Spread your connections far and wide. Make new friends, help existing friends, join a student club, volunteer, or help in the student community.
  • Engage in things that are meaningful to you and that bring you happiness.
  • Learn to love and accept everything about you with compassion and without judgement.
  • Look around at the beauty that surrounds us and spend time immersing yourself in our natural world.
  • Focus on the present and live for now.
  • Embrace life’s challenges and turn them into opportunities to grow.
  • Breathe. The power of breath is an incredible thing. When you feel stressed or anxious, spend one minute breathing. It will change your life!
  • Practice gratitude. Remind yourself of all the blessings you have in your life and write them down every day.

And most importantly;

  • Be who you are and what you want to be, not who you think you should be and create the life that you want!
