December Stressbusters @ Mann

Mann Library is here to help you finish the semester strong! We have extended late-night hours through finals, as well as lots of other events and support to help you stay healthy and focused!


Let’s Meditate

Wednesday, December 7, 12:15 – 12:45pm, Mann 160

Wednesday, December 14, 12:15 – 12:45pm, Mann 100

Meditation has been shown to reduce stress and foster increased well-being – mentally, physically, cognitively, and emotionally. Mann will be hosting two Let’s Meditate sessions during finals week. These are free, guided mindfulness meditation sessions sponsored by Cornell Health that are open to all members of the Cornell community. During each half-hour session, a trained facilitator will lead participants through meditation exercises designed to focus on the breath and quiet the mind.
