Feeling stressed?

By Amber Lautigar Reichert | December 8, 2023

This can be a hard time of year, for a lot of reasons.

Here are some ideas to help get through the hard parts:

If you’re working through assignments, remember that the Library’s “Ask a Librarian” service can help! You can’t scare us — we’ve seen it all. Ask the big questions, ask the little ones. Let us help!

Wind down

Student Affairs maintains a calendar of stress-busting events. Take a look and take a break!

Change things up

If you’re feeling stuck, consider a change of scenery — big or small. You could try a different library location (we have 5!), find a new coffee shop in town, or work alongside a friend.

If you don’t want to work somewhere new, consider a perspective change with short walk in a new direction, a little stretching, or even a one-person dance party!
