Spring Quarter is a great time to start practicing self-care while having fun! Health & Wellness has many events for this quarter so stay tuned for an update on each week's activities.

Dog Therapy Day is Thursday, June 1st from 11am-2pm at the SRB MPR. Reduce your finals stress by spending quality time with one of our many cute, friendly therapy pups!

Rejuvenation Station is Tuesday, June 2nd from 12pm-4pm in SRB MPR. We have everything you need to recharge your batteries! Experience an awesome 10-min chair massage by a certified massage therapist. Take a nap or meditate, grab a snack and tea, or simply stop by for some free swag!

Nap Stations are held on Mondays and Wednesdays every week. Mondays are for Graduate Students only and Wednesdays are for Undergraduate Students only. They are from 3:30-5pm in Building 434 Room 147. Our Nap Station provides students a safe, comfortable and cozy place to nap in the center of campus.

Community Mindfulness Practice happens on campus every Tuesday and Friday. Each session is quick enough to fit in your busy schedule, but effective enough to feel the mindfulness benefits throughout the week! Theses sessions are completely free to students and are led by community professionals, so any and all experience levels are welcome! To receive weekly updates and reminders, be sure to follow UCSB's Meditation Facebook page here.
