Need to Chill Out?
Posted on: November 16, 2021
Need to chill out? Gather together—or turn off your video—and practice virtual meditation & mindfulness with De-Stress for Success.
Mindfulness techniques may be helpful in this unique stressful year. Studies have shown that mindfulness correlates with reduced emotional exhaustion and stress and increased executive function and self-regulation.
Offered by the JMU Libraries and the JMU Initiative for Contemplative Study and Practice, these short, virtual mindfulness sessions will help you through the end of the semester:
Breathing Your Way to a Better Place
Come get some ideas of how to take a truly good breath, slow down your breathing, and calm or energize yourself. Leave more clear headed, ready to face your tasks at hand.
Sign up for December 2, 4-4:30pm
Zen Meditation for Beginners
Learn a bit about Zen and experiment with a few short practices, which are inclusive of people of diverse religions, or no religion.
Sign up for December 9, 3-3:50pm
Be guided through a simple meditation session. Offered in partnership with the JMU School of Music.
Sign up for December 10, 4-5pm
