Thrive Week Templates

As Thrive Week comes to a close, it doesn’t mean that the time to thrive is ending. The message of the week was meant to highlight the resources you can use on campus to thrive in everyday life, foster an inclusive community and show how to develop healthy habits as a student. With Thrive Week also came the launch of a new Instagram Story template each day on @UWaterlooLife. Every story template was designed to help students identify the positive actions they’re already taking to thrive all year.

UW Mates - someone to talk to

With Thrive Week on campus this week, there has been an emphasis on developing self-care habits and learning about the resources available to students. Although there are several counselling services, resources, and seminars available, students may not be aware of them all. In a quest to find out more about one of these services, I reached out to two students from UW’s Mentor Assistance through Education and Support also known as MATES, a one-on-one confidential student support service.

Quick study snacks for everyday

Strawberry smoothie

It’s pretty easy to stray away from eating healthy.  There are so many reasons why you might not be eating a lot of homemade meals or snacks.  If you’re like me, it’s probably because of one of the following:

Pharmacy students use candy to teach kids about medication safety

Katie and Sarah presenting safe medicine board to kindergarteners

Who would have thought of using candy in a medical program? UWaterloo co-op students, of course!

Exercising body and mind

Is more exercise one of your New Year's resolutions? A third-year student is bringing a solution to campus to give students more time, better grades, and keep you healthy all at the same time.
