Wellness Week 2019 #hereforyou

导语

本次期中考试周被赋予了更为丰富的内涵与意义——“身心健康周”。在经历较强压力的时候,人们往往会因为太忙了”、“没时间”等,忽视自己的身心健康。在“身心健康周”期间,我校心理学专业和CPO儿童保护组织的老师们组织了丰富多彩的“午间福利站点”,鼓励七德师生高效利用课余时间,关爱自身心理健康,掌握更多简单易行又能鼓舞人心的健康做法。

Nov. 4thto Nov. 8th(Monday to Friday) is exam week. We also decided to make it wellness week. The reason why we do it that way is because it’s in the time of extreme stress, we tend to ignore our mental wellbeing. We come up with excuses like, I’m too busy. Or I don’t have time for that. During this wellness week, we encourage everyone at Qibao Dwight to take a few minutes and do something for your mental wellbeing because just a little bit can go a long way.

#hereforyou 是一个由Instagram发起的一个心理健康活动,旨在传播人们对心理健康的认识,并提醒自我留意感受来自周围人的关爱与善意。其主旨与我们的身心健康周不谋而合,七德老师们希望大家知道:在七德,有我们;我们为你而在,我们互相扶持。

#hereforyou is a mental health campaign started by Instagram. Its purpose is to spread awareness regarding mental health and remind everyone that people around us are there for us. We really like its message so we used it for our wellness week as well. We want people to know that we are here for you and we are here for each other.

我们设置了3个站台:能量补充站,减压站,以及鼓励站。在减压站,放置了绘本、棋牌、毛线、减压球、折纸。最受欢迎的是减压球和折纸,同学们纷纷前来领取参与,重复挤压减压球可以很好地帮助释放紧张与压力;而折纸则是我们共同的回忆,折纸作为一项古老又宁静的手工,有益身心放松与集中注意。

We’ve set up 3 stations:the energy boost station, mindfulness station, and words of encouragement station. For the mindfulness station, we have coloring books, chess, yarn and needles, squishy balls and origami paper to help destress. We found the squishy balls and the origami paper are the most popular. As soon as the squishy balls arrived at the station, they were gone in a few seconds. The repeated squeezing and stretching of the squishy toy helps to release tension and stress. Origami paper was a shared memory among students. We can all recall the first time we folded a paper airplane. As an ancient, peaceful craft that is not just for children, Origami can also be used as a way to enhance mindfulness for people of all ages.

鼓励站:有近200名学生在鼓励墙上写下鼓励同学的话语和感谢,传播正能量、分享感受、珍惜友谊、互相鼓励,让校园充满温情与正能量。

Words of encouragement: We had almost two hundred students offer words of encouragement to their peers - from wishing them well on their exams to just letting them know that they are appreciated as a friend. The opportunity to write something positive, share their feelings, value their relationships, and lift someone's spirits opened students hearts and let them breathe life into the activity. There were smiles, laughter, and a warm energy that was infectious! The board is on display in the Office of Student Affairs but there are plans to make it more visible on campus.

七德学生会合理运用七德学生会基金,为同学们准备了健康坚果和新鲜果汁,不仅为体力、脑力加油,更积极传递了互相关爱的正能量。

For the Energy Boost Station, the student committee generously used part of their budget to purchase the nuts, raisins and juice to help boost students and teachers’ energy during the exam week. The student committee is sending a message the community: “They are here for us!”

健康周的最后一天,同学们参与了英文口语活动,鼓励他们在午餐时间畅所欲言,分享自己的所思所想。聊天主题包括心理健康、压力管理、放松方式、沟通交流和友谊。

On the last day of wellness week all students took part in an English-speaking activity known as Fluency Friday whereby students are encouraged to have conversations during lunch time. This activity allows learners to practice speaking openly and helps them to feel more comfortable sharing their thoughts on certain topics. Speaking openly and sharing was a key theme of wellness week. The conversation topics of this Fluency Friday event were centred around physical and mental wellbeing, stress management, relaxation, communication and friendship. The response was great with many students having meaningful conversations and sharing their thoughts and experiences related to wellness.

During the Wellness Week, we also had a poster challenge where we encourage the community to find the #hereforyou posters we put up and start to talk about mental health openly and genuinely.
