Club corner: Health and Wellness

Tai Chi, mantra, qi gong, guided, or even transcendental: it’s all meditation.

The Health and Wellness club has asked Dr. Michael McPharlin from Smith Chiropractic on 1009 Ontario Street in Port Huron to participate in the Stressbreaker event on Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Memorial Room of the CEM building.

Dr. Pharlin has volunteered to educate students on meditation which enhances your well-being physically and mentally. He will not only speak to students about meditation, but actually guiding them through exercises. The exercises will include meditation while sitting down and potentially do some walking meditation as well.

The Health and Wellness Club is a student club that strives to teach students and the general community how to attain a healthier lifestyle both physically and mentally.

The club meets every Monday at 10:30 a.m. in the cafeteria in the College Center Atrium.

Past events from this club include hosting a CPR training course and the Pie-in-the-face fundraiser where students and faculty volunteered to take a pie to the face to benefit the club. According to the SC4 Facebook page, 77 pies were thrown and $150 was raised to benefit the club.

The club would like to see the CPR training course and the Pie-in-the-face events happen again for the winter 2012 semester in addition to a bake sale that features healthier snacks, such as banana nut bread and zucchini bread.

To avoid potential waste at the bake sale, club members are planning to talk to local chefs to get advice on what would sell and what would not.

“I want to see more feedback before we put a lot of money and effort into it to try to sell,” said Estelle Wood, Vice President of the Health and Wellness Club.

The biggest challenge for the Health and Wellness Club has been membership.

“We’ve just been talking to people mostly, we’re asking people that are around us,” said Alicia Sullivan, President of the Health and Wellness Club.
