  • Emotional Wellness

    Emotional Wellness is not limited to how you’re feeling at this moment and time; happy, sad, mad, scared… Emotional Wellness also speaks to your support systems, relationships, family life, motivation and a number of other factors that play a huge in determining your success here at Brock. It is important to remember that although you may be in school and taking hours out of your day to cram in the library – it is equally important get out and meet new people, build new relationships and value old ones.

Most students experience some anxiety around exams. It’s quite normal to feel some anxiety when both studying for and/or taking a test. However, anxiety becomes problematic when it is excessive and when it consistently interferes with optimal performance. Test anxiety manifests in different ways for different individuals. Therefore, it is important for students to recognize various manifestations of test anxiety, and if necessary, to implement appropriate coping strategies.

Do you know why you’re at university? Is it just about getting a degree and finding a job after you graduate? Most students want their life to have meaning and a purpose. But university life is often so fast-paced that there is little time to consider what this meaning and purpose could be. This is why also taking care of your spiritual wellbeing is so important. If you’re spiritually unhealthy, your physical, emotional, and intellectual health will inevitably suffer as well. How can you maintain and improve your spiritual health while you’re at Brock? One way is to join a club or clubs that will help you shift your focus to projects that are much larger than your own narrow personal interests, projects that will improve the life of others, both locally and even internationally. Bishop Desmond Tutu, the great champion of the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa, often refers to the African idea of Ubuntu in this regard: “People are people through other people.” It’s when you isolate yourself from the rest of the university community that you put your spiritual health at risk and that you eventually begin to doubt whether life has any meaning.

Ryan will discuss his motivation and drive that leads him in his passion.

About Ryan: Ever since my father and i cycled across Canada at age 13, it has been a dream to turn my passion for two wheels into my purpose in life. That drive has lead me to the world’s most extreme cycling challenges, including Ironman, the 4,418 km Tour Divide (the longest and toughest mountain bike race in the world), the 4,851 km Race Across America (considered the toughest sporting event in the world by Outside magazine), a 25,000 km tour down the Pan American Highway (the longest road in the world, stretching from Alaska to Argentina), and nearly cripple myself on an 7-day stationary cycling world record attempt.
