De-stressing at Ryerson

This is a very busy time of year for our community, and with exams being right around the corner, we thought it would be a good time to highlight some of our options for de-stressing around campus.

The Ryerson Students’ Union has a new Wellness Centre where you can focus on your mental wellbeing and overall wellness on campus. There are various programs and resources which provide the ability to relax, decompress, and talk. Programs include peer-to-peer counselling, creative workshops, Netflix marathons, and puzzles and board games. A full list of programs can be found here.

Did you know that you can cuddle with RU Therapy Dogs every Wednesday on campus? It’s amazing what a cuddle from a sweet pup can do for your wellbeing. Stay up to date on when and where the therapy dogs can be found by following them on Facebook and Twitter.

Ryerson Recreation offers yoga and meditation classes for beginners and experts alike at the RAC. There are 5 free group fitness classes a week (highlighted in yellow on the schedule) as well as the the option to pay a flat fee for the full range of classes.

You may just want to curl up in your favourite spot in the library or SLC with a good book. We have many books in the library on managing stress. Or you may want to pick up one of the books from our popular reading collection, located on the first floor of the library near the elevators. We curate these books with the intention of allowing you to escape the real world with a good read.

However you choose to take care of yourself at this time of year, RULA wishes you all the best with your final projects and exams!
