3:00 - 4:00pm, Relaxation Hour
According to Huff Post “Coloring, especially with complex, geometric patterns, can be its own meditative practice because it involves repetitive motion and enough structure to let you detach from stressful thoughts. In one small study published in the journal Art Therapy, the subjects who colored mandalas or plaid patterns experienced greater anxiety reduction than those who did free-form coloring.” Yummy snacks provided by Graduate Student Senate!
