Be Well at MCC!

Personal health is one of the most important parts of your life – and student success (and satisfaction) is closely connected to overall personal health. This interactive session will help students learn more about the various components of personal health and wellness, increase their self-awareness about their own health and about the impact of making healthy choices, and will introduce them to the wide variety of wellness opportunities available right here at MCC! Engaging, interactive, and educational, and transformative – I look forward to meeting with your students.

Building Resilience to Decrease Your Stress

We can’t always control our stress, but we CAN make changes in our attitudes and behaviors to increase our resistance to stress, or to even prevent it in the first place. This workshop will give students a chance to reflect on the different sources of stress in their lives, to examine facts and myths about stress, and to explore various strategies and techniques to strengthen their resilience in the face of stress.

Relaxation and Meditation 101

Research shows that stress and anxiety sabotage academic performance of all kinds. Relaxation and meditation are two strategies that can help students reduce their stress and improve their focus in order to be more successful in and out of the classroom. This workshop will provide some basic information, as well allow students to experience a brief meditation and a guided relaxation. A variety of resources will be offered to students so they can continue exploring and practicing these techniques on their own.

Stress Management for the College Student

At any given point, most college students are stressed about something; it’s just part of going to school. While having stress in our life is normal and often unavoidable, being stressed is something that we can control. This workshop will help students learn to understand their stressors, to keep them in check and how to relax when things get to be too much.
