Giving VCU employees the wellness resources they need to be healthy both on and off campus

  1. Practice self-care with Aromatherapy
    a. Pleasant fragrances have the ability to reduce stress and
    promote healthy sleep and relaxation. Try an Aromatherapy
    bath or diffuser to boost your mood and promote relaxation.
  2. Adult Coloring books
    a. An adult coloring book is great for refocusing your thoughts
    on something other than everyday life. It is relaxing and
    creates such a beautiful image as the result.
  3. Practice yoga
    a. It helps with emotional balance through concentrated
    breathing and teaches to live in the moment through
    meditative movement.
  4. Random Acts of Kindness
    a. Doing something special and pleasant for others often
    improves how we feel about ourselves, boosts our morale,
    and gives us a sense of accomplishment. This helps to
    balance our thoughts and keep us feeling positive.
  5. Exercise
    a. Participate in exercises that challenge your endurance and
    really gets your heart pumping. In this process, you are
    releasing endorphins that produce that “feel good” emotion
    and essentially gives your mood a major boost.
