Quirky Wellness Challenge

Quirky Wellness Challenge

Self-care can take many different forms, from a walk in nature, to cooking, to belting out a favourite feel-good tune. We challenge you to take up a new wellness activity that helps you release stress, whatever it may be. We’ve challenged three professors to do the same.

Vote on a quirky wellness challenge for each professor to perform. Once votes are in, check back to watch the professors performing their most voted activity. You don’t want to miss it! Don’t forget to explore your own path to well-being and find what works for you.
