Just in time for finals week: 5 distracting de-stressors

Metro State Library

Feeling stressed because of Finals? Take a break from studying and try one or more of these distracting de-stressors.

Meditation – It doesn’t have to be the kind practiced by monks or hippies, lots of people meditate these days.  Start small with a minute or two a day and add more time as you get used to it.  If you like it, you can always add to your practice. If the thought of sitting still to meditate doesn’t sound appealing. Get some fresh air and focus your thoughts while walking the labyrinth on the Library’s south side.

Exercise – Take advantage of the warmer November/December weather to go for a brisk walk or run or take the time to squeeze in some jumping jacks or squats and bicep curls before hitting the books.
