Embrace the New Year with More Gratitude

Happy New Year to all! It’s a wonderful time to set new intentions for self-improvement and to incorporate a little more gratitude into your daily life. There are so many ways to practice gratitude, and just as many evidence-based reasons for doing so, such as improved stress management, increased happiness, and strengthened relationships. This is your reminder that the PVM Wellness Committee offers the opportunity for you to lift our collective well-being through a submission to our regular Paws Up feature in the Vet Gazette.

As an example, this week we start out the new year with “Paws Up” for the Oncology Service in the Purdue University Veterinary Hospital, which is being recognized for brightening students’ experiences. A student submitted this “Paws Up” nomination stating, “They [the whole Oncology Service] brighten my day every time I am around them. They are surrounded by patients and clients in need of extra special care, yet still they manage to keep their area positive. They are extremely good teachers and want to help students learn.”

Fostering a healthy work environment involves expressing appreciation and gratitude. Is there someone you would like to acknowledge today? It’s easy to make a “Paws Up” submission – just follow this link.  Submissions are published anonymously and may be edited for length. Any staff, faculty, student, or team may be nominated by anyone in our college. For more information, visit the PVM Wellness Committee website.
