What is Revive and Thrive 

Revive and thrive is all about optimizing your wellbeing and promoting a sustainable, healthy lifestyle. Join the conversation and learn about not only why it’s important to take control of your health wellbeing but also how we can do this!

When? There will be various revive and thrive (virtual) events throughout the semester. These events will focus on things such as: nutrition, sleep, mental health, reflection, gratitude, and journalling. Each of these things plays an important role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and it’s important that we learn how to make the most of each of these factors.
