Last week Arc Wellness had their Gratitude pop up and I was lucky enough to be able to help out. Practicing gratitude helps us to focus on the positives in our life and helps us to cope in stressful situations, such as being bombarded by uni work. In the pop up we had a few things to help students learn about and practice gratitude- the gratitude tree, where people could post up things they were grateful for, a letter station where students could write a letter to someone special to them, and mindfulness information booklets for everyone to take home.
It was quite rewarding getting students to come over to the pop up and especially seeing people who were really keen to practice gratitude. Even for those who didn’t stop, a lot of them when asked mentioned they were grateful for many things in their life! - Ian Li, Psychology Honours, Wellness Warrior
