Well-being & Stress Management with the Brain Booth
Nowadays, college students face a lot of different challenges in a very fast-paced society. For example, they have to navigate between two major factors affecting their performance and well-being, namely, coping with stress and dealing with distractions to sustain productive cognitive activities. These might manifest as lack of concentration, also known as mind wandering. Scholarly literature supports mindful practices, such as intentional brain breaks, emotional self-regulation, and singular focus, to help students improve study skills and knowledge retention. These practices are offered through the Brain Both Initiative. The Library Brain Booth (BB) is an informal, experiential space to learn about the mind body connection and optimize learning.
Participants will gain experience in:
- Recognizing and addressing the need for mindfulness and reflection in our society
- Mitigating stress and focusing on self-care
