Unleash the Stress!

This week, the members of the Jack Project have encouraged all members of the Lambton College community to "unleash the stress." It's a busy time around here, as students push their way through tests and assignments to reach the end of term. The stress can start to bring us down if we're not careful.

To help keep us balanced, the team behind Lambton's chapter of the Jack Project has organized a free pancake breakfast, visits with therapy dogs, drop-in yoga, a car smash event, a flash mob surprise, and, yesterday, a mental health walk.

Lambton students, staff, faculty, and our mascot, Pounce, post at the end of our
walk in the sunshine.
The walk--which took us to RBC and back--was a wonderful break in the middle of the day, and a chance to chat with friends and colleagues. It was also an important reminder that good mental health doesn't happen automatically: we have to set time aside for ourselves if we want to stay healthy.
