New mindful group can help relieve stress

Colorado State UniversityCSU Health Network has launched a new Mindful Drop-In Group to help students, staff and faculty cope with stress by practicing mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one’s physical, mental, and emotional experiences. Cultivating the ability to be mindful has scientifically been shown to help manage stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, and promote health and well-being.

The Mindful Drop-In Group is open to members of the CSU community. Each week includes a brief introduction, a guided practice, and discussion. No registration is required, and any student, staff or faculty member interested in practicing mindfulness is welcome. Participants can drop-in as often or little as they like.

The group, led by staff from the CSU Health Network, Health Education and Prevention Services, will meet this semester in the Lory Student Center room 376 on Wednesdays from 12:10 – 1 p.m.  (on 3/25, in LSC 322)  For more information, contact Viviane via email or phone at (970) 491-4724.
