LETTERS OF GRATITUDE IN-PERSON EVENT
Studies have shown the helpful effects of showing gratitude, not only for those receiving, but also for those on the giving end. Please join Student Health & Wellness Programs on Wednesday, November 18th from 11am-1pm at Campus Center 301, to write letters of gratitude to loved ones, friends and faculty to share how much they mean to you. Cards, writing instruments and other decorative touches will be available.
TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND RELAX
Coherence happens when the heart, mind, & emotions are aligned and working together harmoniously. The Quick Coherence Technique, from HeartMath, can easily create a state of coherence in about 60 seconds by releasing stress and stopping draining emotions such as frustration, irritation, anxiety and anger. Try it today!
NEED TO TALK? COME & SEE US!
It's always nice to have someone to talk to about what's going on in your life. Now especially, as the pandemic continues into the final weeks of the semester, we may feel the need for extra support. The team at Counseling Services is here to help! On Wednesday afternoon's Counselors are available for 30-minute sessions, no appointment necessary. If you don't want to or can't stop by, the Interns are available for 30 minute phone check-ins.
TIME FOR A CHECK IN?
Mindwise has a great collection of screenings available to the UH Hilo Community. Sometimes, we may fall into habits we wouldn't have otherwise. A self-assessment can determine any areas that need special attention. If you wish to speak with someone further, please contact Counseling Services at (808) 932-7465 or email: UHHCOUNS@HAWAII.EDU.
