Meditation and mindfulness can relieve stress, improve focus and more. We offer programs to help you cultivate this practice in your daily life.

Learning to be Mindful

Meditation is the practice of intentionally focusing on something (frequently a word or phrase, sounds, or your own breath) to increase awareness of the present moment. Mindfulness strategies allow students to access present moment experiences to assist them to better cope with stress, improve sleep and manage their emotions during tumultuous times. Health Promotion offers a variety of programs to help you incorporate mindfulness in your daily life. No experience or equipment necessary, everyone is welcome.

Mindfulness and Meditation Four-Session Program

Health Promotion provides a free introduction to mindfulness program for all students. The skills that are taught include belly breathing, dynamic breathing, body scan, walking meditation, guided visualizations, eating meditation and more. The program utilizes the easy-to-read book, The Mindful Twenty-Something by Holly Rogers, which provides lots of examples of how college student can practice meditation. The book can be purchased online, but is optional if the cost is a hardship. Students who attend the program will receive the Koru app free.  Students must be able to commit to attending all four courses, and pre-register on UBLinked. Be sure to log in to UB Linked to access the registration form.
