In recognition of Wellness Week, physical education classes at the Bayport-Blue Point High School were recently transformed into designated areas where students could engage in mindful activities and techniques. With assistance from community resident Dr. Gina Witt, students took part in a mindfulness session in the wrestling room where they cleared their mind for a number of moments and engaged in helpful techniques which assisted with relieving stress. Additionally, the Peer Education Program Students facilitated conversations with their peers in small groups about stress, what their triggers are, and strategies they put in place when feeling stressed, ultimately creating a safe space for their peers to discuss important topics amongst one another.
