Want to practice self-care during COVID-19 in a fun way? Join the Great Warrior Hibernation Challenge!

With the Great Warrior Hibernation Challenge,  you can learn how to be safe, take care of your mental health and work on your well-being as we do our part to reduce COVID-19 cases in our community and finish the semester strong.

How to Play

Download your GWH Game Card (DOC)!

This game card will be used throughout the 3 week wellness challenge.

Each square is comprised of an activity that will benefit your mental and emotional health or is a COVID-safe activity.

These are activities that you can complete at home, or safely in the community. Some activities are taken from Resiliency Skills Training (PDF) by Jessica Gifford, which is an evidence-based wellness workbook for college students.

Weekly Activities

Each week there are 5 activities to do that will help keep you entertained and safe throughout quarantine. They range from individual to virtual group activities. Stay tuned on social media for daily updates on Great Warrior Hibernation activities.

Gray Squares

On the top of the game card, there are two rows of gray squares comprised of activities to do and to avoid throughout the 3-week wellness challenge.

 

The activities listed in the dark gray “Don’t” squares are activities that you should avoid throughout the 3-weeks to help minimize the spread of COVID-19. If you complete an activity listed in the “Don’t” squares that is not a COVID friendly activity, you will lose 3 submission entries to the final drawing.
