What is De-Stress for Success?


Do your studies stress you out? And do your stress levels affect your study habits? Is it all just one overwhelming circle of stress that you can't escape? Are you silently screaming?

STOP! Let out that sigh you've been holding in. And keep reading.

We know that stress can take a toll on academic performance and overall health. Add in a short time-frame at the end of every semester when all assignments are due and the whole campus feels tense and overwhelmed. Add in a dash of pandemic, and we're right there with you. That's why every semester JMU Libraries hosts activities to help students, staff, and faculty find release during the stressful final exam season. Activities vary semester to semester, but usually include coloring tables, surprise snacks, and a few mindfulness sessions from our partners on campus.

Join us for an in-person yoga session, with a little help from our friend Dr. Bryce Hayes in the JMU School of Music.


60-Minute Multi-Level Yoga Flow

Join JMU Music professor and yoga instructor Dr. Bryce Hayes for an in-person all-levels yoga flow! Bring a yoga mat; some yoga mats will be provided. This event will be held in the Music Building, room B71.
Drop in on Monday, December 12 @ 11:00-12:00pm
