Play-Doh, Gardening, and Essential Oils at DO Day of Wellness

Students took a break from their busy schedules to put their Play-Doh sculpting and coloring skills to the test during RVU’s DO Day of Wellness. A common theme during the school year, wellness and activities that promote its different components are an important part of developing a healthy work/life balance, especially during the medical school years. While they may seem elementary, interactive activities like molding Play-Doh and coloring help to declutter the mind and reduce stress, enhancing one’s intellectual and emotional wellness.

The event also focused on other components of wellness – physical, occupational, social, environmental, and financial – through various interactive and fun activities. In between eating delicious food served at the event and catching up with friends, students were able to learn new exercise moves, talk to a financial advisor, explore essential oils, and cultivate their green thumbs by planting herbs to take home. For students who stopped at the different booths, they were entered for a chance to win a sixty second massage, a diffuser with essential oils, or a salt lamp. Overall, students welcomed the break from studying for exams and came away with new tips on how to improve their health and wellness.
