Stressful times calls for mindful measures. Sometimes we just need to center ourselves and find focus and peace with our current situation. Here are some resources to help:
Mid-Week Meditation: For a taste of how you might apply Mindfulness to your daily stressors, Campus Recreation offers free 1-hour sessions on Wednesday evenings led by a licensed RN and trained Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Facilitator.

We can't meet in person to do DIY but we can dream.... Here are some workshops we've done in the past and hope to do again soon!
Create a Nature Print
You've always wanted to create a "cyanotype," you just didn't realize it. This is a process in which you will use the sun's rays and natural materials to make a blue print that looks like a silhouette art print. If there is time, you will then have the opportunity to add color to make it your own creation.
DIY Natural Facial Masks
Make your own facial mask to take with you, including natural deep clean, acne, energizing, or exfoliating recipes. While you're at it, get a free 10 minute chair massage, check out other wellness resources and get raffle tickets for prizes including massage, beauty treatments and products.
Become certified in American Heart Association Heartsaver Adult/Child/Infant CPR/AED. Classes will incorporate physical-distancing guidelines. All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a digital certification card through the American Heart Association good for 2 years.
Fees: DePaul students, faculty, and staff: $22.50 (purchase of educational materials); Ray Community and Alumni members: $45; not available for other non-members.
