Heads Up my friend. Building healthy connection habits with others is a great way to help you, and the people around you, stay happy and healthy. We need each other more than ever, so let’s all be Heads Up and part of the solution to a more socially connected world.
The GenWell Project ‘s Head’s Up campaign a student focused social health program that is working to educate, empower and catalyze students at Colleges and Universities across Canada to be more conscious and intentional about their social health, and the negative impact on their mental and physical health when they don’t maintain healthy connection habits.
This message is more important as we exit the global pandemic and also as we continue to combat the time and emotional distractions that social media and 24-hour connectedness is having on our young.
As we come out of the global pandemic and students begin to head back to campus, look out for our posters on your campus, our social posts on your campus platforms or maybe a few Heads Up baseball caps and toques walking around, helping raise the collective consciousness, and act as a catalyze to give people an excuse and permission to connect.
Here is just a sample of what you might see as you get connected…
Each of our posters is intended to connect with students and remind them about the importance of being Heads Up for one of many reasons.
- Heads Up – eye contact with another person can improve someone’s mood and sense of connection.
- Heads Up – we all need to be more aware of how important our social connections are to our happiness, our health and our well-being.
- Heads Up – that you have the power to make a difference in the life of someone else who may not be feeling connected or have a sense of belonging, just by connecting.
- Heads Up – We have always been in this together, but more so now than ever before we all need to be part of the solution to creating a more connected world.
