Stress Less: Let's Move

Stress Less has been extended to cover the entire month of May! This week's theme is 'Move'.
04 - 08 MAY 2020

Keeping active is important for your general wellbeing. If your body is strong, your mind follows. This week we're all going to move together!

You may find that some days are busier and you don’t have much time to exercise. If this is the situation for you, don’t worry, we have a number of activities that are only 10 minutes in length or stretch to 1 hour.

This weeks’ Let’s Move activities encourage you to try some different.

Coffee Chats with USQ Wellness

Coffee Chats with USQ Wellness involves two wellness educators talking about different topics each week; all about how we can keep ourselves on track in life and study at this time. This is a relaxed conversation, learning from each other and hearing ideas, to empower you to enhance your own life. It’s most definitely not a therapy session, so grab a coffee and let's chat!

Today's session is "Be your own shrink" which will run from 1.30-2.00pm.
