Social work student Janet Tong-Anderson knows how take care of herself.
“I live well by taking a well-deserved nap, then getting back to work or relaxing with my sister’s dog,” she wrote in her winning entry for a contest sponsored by Wellness at UWindsor.
The social media competition challenged students to post about the self-care they employ to live well.
Tong-Anderson’s entry was drawn at random from more than 200; she will receive a prize pack of a wearable fitness tracker and a $100 gift card for athletic apparel.
The November 1 prize draw was conducted by the mental health mascot, Wellnessaurus Rx, says Ashley Vodarek, mental health wellness co-ordinator in the Student Counselling Centre.
“Sometimes your stressors and fears can kind of feel like a giant T-rex looming over you,” she says. “Yet we can certainly learn to make friends with our T-rex and live in wellness.”
