Self-Care Saturdays are for you! In the midst of tests, homework, organization involvement, volunteerism, and so much more, we can sometimes forget to take care of ourselves. Join Mosaic and a variety of campus partners on Saturdays for activities that will serve your physical and mental health as a college student. These programs will help you develop and practice a holistic understanding of self care.
All attendees will receive giveaways that will help jumpstart your self-care routine, and students who attend 4 or more Self-Care Saturdays to be entered into a drawing for a HUGE self-care bundle.
All Self-Care Saturdays are scheduled from 2-3pm at the Score Quadrangle (grassy area between Olin and the Robertson Center). In case of inclement weather, the rain site will be communicated to all RSVPed students.
Space is limited at each event, and RSVP is strongly encouraged.
Saturday, January 23rd: Meditation
Start the semester strong by joining us for our first Self-Care Saturday of the year. Dr. Kylin Lee from the Counseling and Health Center will lead us in exploring how to use meditation as a mindfulness practice. While we are constantly trying to juggling various responsibilities in school, jobs, and organizations, while also navigating the stressors of the world today, meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace, and balance that can benefit your emotional well-being and overall health. Developing a regular practice of meditation can help reduce stress and anxiety, as well as help you have a more positive outlook on life!
Attendees will receive a free blanket (so you can comfortably sit on the grass) and will be entered into a drawing for a gratitude journal! This event will help you: Construct a Well-Managed Life and Develop 21st-Century Skills.
Saturday, January 30th: Movement
Get moving with Mosaic and Exercise is Medicine! In the midst of a busy semester we can sometimes forget about the importance of moving our bodies. Movement is helpful to you physical AND mental health – it gives you healthy joints, increases circulation, helps with digestion, metabolism, and immunity, and it can even help with improved learning skills and circulation! This week’s Self-Care Saturday will introduce you to some basic yoga poses for stress relief and exercises you can do in your room. We’ll also get moving with a walk around campus!
Attendees will be entered into a drawing for a cork yoga mat. This event will help you: Construct a Well-Managed Life.

Saturday, February 27th: Nutrition
What you put in your body matters! Establishing a practice of nutritious eating is essential to your overall well being and long term health. Plus, research shows that college students are able to learn better when they consume healthy, well-balanced meals – this means that a nutritious diet could lead to higher grades, better memory, and alertness. This Self-Care Saturday will help you explore how nutrition is essential to your self-care.

Come to our end-of-semester mindfulness reflection event to talk to other students and personally reflect on the practices of holistic self care that you have developed. What have you learned this semester? What has worked well to help you create balance in your life, and what hasn’t? And, how will you use what you learned this semester in the future?
