21 Day Wellbeing Challenges

21 Day Wellbeing Challenges

2019 Wellbeing has kicked off to fantastic start with the success of the first two 21 Day Challenges. 

These are challenges designed for students and staff to focus on improving specific lifestyle factors over a 21-day period, with the ultimate goal for these to form into long-term habits, hence improving wellbeing. 

The first challenge focused on hydration, challenging the Scotch community to meet their daily water requirements. Water-themed quizzes, posters, and walking-talking water advertisements (see image below) were used to encourage students to drink water. 

The next challenge centred around adequate sleep each night. Often underestimated, the impact of healthy sleeping patterns on overall wellbeing is mammoth. Positive sleeping behaviour is critical for quality performance in all facets of life, and is a key factor for wellbeing. The sleep challenge was a resounding success, as the campaign was promoted through the distribution of sleep hygiene tips and the use of technology to help students to improve their sleeping habits. 

Further, planning has commenced for an inter-collegiate Mental Health Symposium set to occur in July, calling on a range of students from across the state to discuss successful wellbeing modeling for schools, and how to ensure positive mental health outcomes for students. 

Exciting times ahead for 2019 Wellbeing!
