Managing Stress: Pratt Services for Students
Wednesday, Feb 27, 2013 @ 12:04 pm
With midterms, Pratt students are feeling overwhelmed and stress with their classes. One thing to remember is that stress is normal and is part of life, but the healthier you are, the better able you are to manage stress when it happens. Some components that are part of wellness lifestyle approach are your attitude, healthy eating, physical activity, relaxing your mind and body, and time management. There are many ways students can maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout the semester while studying at Pratt. Health and Counseling services and Athletics and Recreation are two departments that are able to offer services to the students.
Health and Counseling focus on what students are interested in: relaxation and stress management. They have free massages every month, a stress-relief day once a semester, and partner with Athletics and Recreation and Student Involvement to host an annual Health and Wellness Fair. The fair will be held on March 28th, 2013 from 12pm – 3pm in the ARC. It is open to students, faculty and staff members. The event is filled with vendors to provide the Pratt community with a wealth of information on a variety of health, fitness, and wellness topics. There will also be free chair massages, health screenings, giveaways, health food ideas, and sampling. Please see below for spring events.
Athletics and Recreation provides Prattfit classes throughout the year. There is an array of classes to choose from. Based on requests, there are four new classes for the Spring 2013 semester including contemporary ballet, cardio kickboxing, interval and meditation.
