    10 Reasons Why You Need To Join Mood Routes

    Aysha Azeez from Student Learning Support tells us why Mood Routes is perfect for de-stressing, connecting to nature, and re-focusing to help your studies. Last fall, Mood Routes set out on six walks. Join us this winter term every Tuesday from 12-1:30pm!

    Ryerson is always bustling with initiatives to help support student engagement and well-being. Although it can be difficult to keep track of all of them and find the time to attend, one that you cannot miss is Mood Routes.

    Mood Routes is a Ryerson Student Affairs initiative, in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association's Mood Walks program, that encourages you to get outside not just for physical activity, but to de-stress, refocus, and re-ground.

    Every Tuesday from 12-1:30pm we meet at the SLC Amphitheatre and we set out on a different accessible route to a nearby greenspace.

    Here are 10 reasons why you need to join us on our next walk:

    1. Vitamin D

    2. Improved Sleep

    3. Improvement of Attention and Memory

    4. You will feel happier

    7. Mental Well-Being Discussions with Professional Staff

    8. Accessible Routes

    9. Rejuvenation
