As we all know, change is inevitable in life and often difficult to adjust to; especially when it’s unexpected and drastic.
Since the pandemic hit, the addiction and mental health students at CTS-Canadian Career College have only met each other virtually. As the AMH Lead Instructor and Program Coordinator, I recently organized a field trip and included a guest speaker to present on the Indigenous Culture that complimented the course my students were studying.
We met at Marathon Beach and spent three hours learning and having fun.
It’s interesting how changing our routine, even if it’s just for a couple of hours out of our week, can make a huge difference in our mental health. Everyone had a great time and even though brief, this little adventure away from online learning changed our mindset.
After listening to our guest speaker, we managed to have a little fun getting our feet wet and splashing around a bit. I teach our AMH students that it’s important to have a balance in life especially as they move toward embracing their future careers.
What a day this was! I witnessed the passion these students have for their chosen field and am honoured to be their instructor as part of the team at CTS-Canadian Career College!
Remember, even the smallest change to our routine can have a significant impact.
