tress Less Fest is an event in the courtyard, run by the Galileo Youth Outreach Workers and Wellness, to promote positive coping mechanisms and activities to cope with stress. This year is was held on Tuesday October 24th. There were 5 booths that students were able to participate in. S
The Smoothie Bike was a fun way to encourage students to eat healthy, and destress while doing it. Students made their own smoothies using a blender powered by a bike. Research shows that exercising is a very effective way to relieve stress.
The “What do you love about yourself?” booth was for students to write one thing they love about themselves on the banner. Research shows that students who have positive self talk are more likely to reach their goals. This banner is to be hung outside of wellness for students to continue writing.
The “Drop the Attitude and Show Gratitude” boot was for students to write one thing they are grateful for on the banner. Research shows that gratitude inspires people to be helpful and prevents them from partaking in harmful behaviors. This banner is to be hung outside of wellness for students to continue writing on.
Students were able to select different fruits for their smoothie.
The Venting booth gave students the opportunity to talk to either a youth outreach worker or wellness counselor. Students could vent to either one of them for 1 minute. Research shows that being able to vent to someone can eliminate stress.
The Jenga booth was a game of Jenga with a twist, each block has a question that students had to answer. There were questions regarding self love, interests, and coping mechanisms. Research shows that by having social interactions and getting to know people, you are less likely to be depressed, and be more successful.
