Mood Routes

Mood Routes Get moving. Get grounded. Get lifted.

Mood Routes is a TMU Student Wellbeing initiative apart of the Thriving in Action program, in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Mood Walks.  The program encourages us to get outside not just for physical activity, but to de-stress, refocus, and re-ground ourselves.

Mood Routes are designed to provide the following benefits:

  • Restore attention, focus and reduces stress
  • Improve health and fitness levels
  • Increase connection to nature and improve mood

Join our Virtual Mood Routes on Instagram Live! Hop on over to the @rumoodroutes (external link)  account on the app on your phone, tablet, or web browser and join us as we go for a walk in an outdoor greenspace. Research shows that even looking at pictures of nature can help elevate mood and lower stress.

When? Join us on a virtual st/roll on Instagram live @rumoodroutes every week at 12pm on Thursdays!

Please contact Dr. Deena Kara Shaffer, Coordinator of Student Transition and Retention at (external link)  with any questions.
