Nowhere in life are we specifically taught how to manage our stress. We’ve accepted stress as a part of our daily lives as students and young adults, and sometimes equate success with stress. If we’re not stressed, often we don’t feel successful. Stress impacts every aspect of our lives: our health, relationships, education, etc.
In this Decal, we would like to introduce students to evidence-based breathing and meditation techniques, for them to choose to employ in their own lives. We would like to create conversation around different modes of stress management and the link between stress and our forms of expression, i.e. our human values: service, creativity, happiness, leadership, authenticity, awareness, etc.
Attendance is required to make the best out of the course, however, excused absences are allowed. We have two options for a final: an all-expenses paid-for meditation retreat on campus or a research paper.
