Yoga is a great way to get exercise, relieve some stress, and have fun! On campus you can participate in free yoga in the MUB and in the Hamel recreation center.

Yoga is an exercise that combines breathing and stretching. It is usually done in a quiet, dimly light room, and with an instructor leading the stretches or poses. Yoga is a great exercise for all ages because there are many forms with varying intensities. Some different types of yoga include:

Students can encounter all types of stress during their four years at college. Stress can come from all aspects of life, including your living situation. Having problems with your living situation can have a seriously negative effect on your mental health, and in turn your overall health. Although some things are out of your control, a way that you can try to avoid this kind of stress is to be a good roommate. Chances are, if you know how to be a good roommate, the person/people that you are living with you treat you in the same respect, making your home happy and safe.

Mid-semester is often a stressful time for everyone. Midterms, exams, papers, and projects all seem to pile up at once and you are suddenly left with no free time at all. Everyone is tense and worried about their own workload. This can often lead to harsh attitudes and bitter tones even between your closest friends. The best way to avoid this unnecessary drama is laughter. Laughing immediately puts you in a better mood and lightens your spirits. Just think about it, have you ever felt mad or annoyed while laughing?

Many students are feeling a lot of anxiety about the end of the semester that is fast approaching. With exams, papers, and final projects, the work seems endless. It is important that we all stay in good mental health so that we can finish out the semester strong! The best way to combat your end of semester work is to manage your time wisely and keep a positive and clear mind. It is also important that you take study breaks; take a walk, have a snack, do something that isn’t school related to give your brain a break.

As the semester nears an end, it can seem like there is still an enormous amount of assignments with very little time to complete them. If you haven’t already adapted to a time management strategy, now is the time to do it. Managing your time is essentially vital to doing well in college. While it may seem like you have more free time than ever before, the amount of time that needs to be devoted to studying and working on assignments is a huge portion.
