We've got you covered

Stress is a normal part of life. Check out these opportunities to strengthen your ability to cope. 

Welcome Weekend Wellness

Welcome Weekend is a fun and exciting time for students and families alike! To help you "take it all in," join McDonald Center for Student Well-Being, RecSports, and the Snite Museum of Art to start your weekend mornings by giving yourself a moment to reflect, relax, and recharge at your choice of wellness events - yoga, a run/walk, or a group mindfulness walk. All are welcome - no previous experience is necessary and mats will be provided. See you bright and early at the Snite Museum of Art!

Meet at Snite Museum of Art at 7 am on Saturday, August 18, 2018.

Nature Connect

Join McWell on Tuesdays for a new, free, outdoor event: Nature Connect. This event was strategically created to help you unplug and to connect with the beautiful Notre Dame campus. Each week we will focus on a different element of the world surrounding us--you might even leave with a new perspective of your environment. 

In Nature Connect you'll learn and experience mindfulness techniques throughout each session, although no previous mindfulness experience is required. Add it to your calendar for a weekly study break, or bring a friend as an excuse for a restorative get together. 

Location: Interested individuals should meet at McWell. Open to all undergraduate & graduate students, faculty, and staff.

Time: In order to get the most out of our nature experience, times will vary. Follow @McWellND on Twitter for Nature Connect timing updates. 

Mindfulness 101

New to mindfulness or meditation?  Interested in understanding more?  Not sure what all the hype is all about?  Reach out!  We'd be happy to schedule a time to come meet with your group.  Email mcwell@nd.edu for more information.

Doing Stress Well

This skills-based workshop discusses all aspects of stress – what it is, where it comes from, and most importantly how to deal with it.  Invite McWell into your section or organization to learn about and practice a variety of stress-relieving activities and consider ways to implement them into your daily life.  Email mcwell@nd.edu for more information.
