Stress relief can take many forms

Mandy Scheuer, Office Manager

A recent announcement on the Wolfpack Connect app about stress management because finals are creeping up fast, may have had you picturing an instructor talking about deep breathing, meditation, getting plenty of sleep and other strategies to relieve stress.

Instead, those who stopped by Truax Room D1630 were treated to doughnuts, hot chocolate, coloring pages and gift bags.

In the gift bags were two Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, a mini Gatorade bottle, a highlighter, two pieces of Swedish Fish, a packet of gum, a piece of chocolate that had espresso in it, a packet of fruit snacks and a packet of Cheez-Its.

One of the coloring pages had the saying, “Wake up and smell the rain,” a simple reminder to take a break amid all the stress.

Who doesn’t love free food, free hot chocolate and free stuff given to you just for participating? The next time you see an event on the Wolfpack Connect app, you should go and see what’s in store for you.
