Today, NüYü had it's first official meeting with a few new members! We are nearing twenty people now!
We reviewed the six-step problem solving process, as well as evolving our project to a new level and brainstorming solution ideas. These are a few we came up with (and you can look forward to some of them at CMS!) Firstly, we discussed various fundraising events, such as a color run (a run where you get splattered with paint). The color run will have booths along the way for people to rest and practice stress-relieving activities as well! We will be applying for grants from our PTSA, selling NüYü merchandise, and more. At the moment, we are designating people to manage our finances.
We also came up with other ways to spread our project. As mentioned in the previous post, we have a twitter account. Make sure to visit it for more updates! Another idea is an app - filled with stress-relieving activities such as music for meditation, instructions for yoga, and up-to-date news about NüYü. This will require slightly more work than our other ideas, but we'll try!
Something that is still in the air is improving the website by letting YOU make accounts! This idea is still very new and might or might not be implemented, but if it succeeds, you can create an account on our website and track stress, sleep, and stress-relieving activities.
Our adviser, Dr. MC, teaching us about the UP (underlying problem).
For every one of our possible solutions, we evaluated them to see whether or not they would address the underlying problem. If they did, they passed. If they didn't, we revised them so they would.
We are also working on a four week program for stress-relieving activities! We will be playing games, doing yoga, meditation, and mindfulness in general. Ever heard of eating a raisin mindfully?
We are so excited to start off a new year together, and will be posting regularly!
