Midterm Madness

It’s midterm time! This can be a hectic time for students with classes, exams, papers, and even extracurricular activities! Mindfulness and self-care are two concepts to keep in mind while going through stress.

Mindfulness is a basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we are doing., and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

Self- care is the act of attending to one’s physical or mental health.

Wellness at Penn has a list of tools ranging from adult coloring pages to breathing exercises.
