Hey Daniels. I’m back! How bout that frustrating Jays game last night?! On this feature of Saturdays with Shal I wanted to give you information on the Health and Wellness Services U of T has to offer. Since we pay for it, it’s important to take advantage of these services… and it all starts with this website: http://www.studentlife.utoronto.ca/hwc (you can also find it in ACORN). This is your trusty guide for anything Health & Wellness you need at any time. I thought I’d highlight the goodies for you. Below is a screenshot of the website. Circled in yellow is the services tab. Use this if you need to know hours of operation and location, appointments, and forms. LOOK HERE: YOU CAN BOOK HEALTH APPOINTMENTS ONLINE. Awesome! I’ve used it before, it’s super convenient. As well, it's your portal for every service they offer, i.e. physical health and mental health. Next is healthy habits, circled in green. This is a plethora (yes I know big words too) of info on, you guessed it, tips on healthy habits. Lastly, Student Life Departments circled in blue. This gives you lots of stuff such as aboriginal student services, accessibility services, career centre, housing, clubs, and sexual and gender diversity office to name a few. Well, thats it for this week Daniels, hope this was handy and dandy. Keep it classy out there!
Hey everyone! If you don’t know me already, my name is Shalice, but you can call me Shal (since its way easier lets be real). I am your AVSSU Health & Wellness Director, and as such I am beginning a new segment I like to call “Saturdays with Shal” (then I smile and they cue the little flash and ding sound). This is where I’ll be posting all things Health & Wellness, whether its a good recipe or food tip, nagging you to get better sleep, or other events going on around U of T such as yoga classes. Today I’ll be talking about turkey since its Thanksgiving weekend and what better theme to begin the year off with?! Annnnd action:
Its officially midterm season as you rushed to finish those last minute details for tomorrow morning’s critique (or, you know, just starting the entire project) while still trying to stay on top of your other classes’ midterms and essays. But thankfully, the weekend couldn’t have got here sooner and now you’re hopefully enjoying a nice break with family or your roommates. If you’re like me you’re the latter, and you want to enjoy that turkey dinner you miss so much but since you have no idea how to cook a turkey, you settle for McDonald’s chicken nuggets instead. But I am here to help! Instead of posting all the steps, I have provided a direct link to Canadian Living of a play by play on how to cook a turkey. For my herbivore friends, I have also provided a recipe for a delicious Quinoa Stuffing. If you’re not like me and you are home watching the grown-ups cook for you, why not impress them and offer to cook the turkey this year?!
Thats all for this week, I’ll see you next Saturday. Keep it classy, Daniels.
