Stressed Out over Finals? Try These Mindfulness Exercises
Four 60-second videos designed to help you relax
Finals are fast approaching bringing with them the inevitable pressure of last-minute papers, final projects, and looming exams. To help combat all that stress, BU Today has created a series of four 60-second mindfulness exercises designed to get you to slow down and relax.
Mindfulness is defined as “the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment.” These four videos offer a chance to shake off that stress by spending a minute breathing deeply with the help of visual and sound aids, or spending a minute sitting still and losing yourself in some serene images of nature.
