What Is the Wellness Room?

By Debanti Sengupta (Wellness Room)

The Wellness Room is a project that has been instituted by a number of Stanford faculty and students to provide a space of peace and calm to you, the Stanford student, as you move through the ups and downs of life here at Stanford. The Wellness Room aims to provide programming not just in the Wellness Room, but all throughout campus, to help students relieve stress and discover a healthier, more balanced way of living while remaining efficient and productive.

How do we aim to do this? Through innovative workshops that bring you the tools to live healthier, relax, take better care of your mind and body, and perhaps be a little silly. During fall quarter, we reached out to over 200 students on campus with workshops, including yoga, meditation, and community service. Our aim is to foster a proactive culture of wellbeing on campus where taking care of ourselves is an acceptable thing to do. We've partnered with the RAs, the PHEs, and the CAs on campus, and we're looking forward to expanding our programming even further this quarter.

There's one tip we'd like to share with the student body: taking a few minutes of to take care of yourself each day can do wonders for your productivity and efficiency. Maybe that means taking some time to meditate, consciously slowing down, going for a walk or run, doing an activity you enjoy, or spending time with people you love. Taking a little time to unwind every day allows us to get our work done more efficiently and leaves us with more time to do the things that we would really like to.

We're always happy to hear from you and are always open to suggestions on programming. In the meantime, come visit! Our website is http://assu.stanford.edu/wellnessroom/.

  8. I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that this is working for you as well.
