Finals Week Stress Relievers – Lizzy Walker and Angie Paul

by Samuel Willis on 2017-12-06T09:11:47-06:00 in Library Resources, Library Events & Displays | Comments

Do finals have you stressed? Find some relief at the University Libraries between your study sessions. Here are a few things you can do.

Engage in some media consumption: watch a streaming video using Swank Digital Campus accessible through the A-Z Databases List (http://libresources.wichita.edu/az.php), read a book from Leisure Reading  or check out a DVD from the SGA/SAC DVD collection located on Ablah Library’s first floor

Read the latest Sunflower! Issues available in the lobby while supplies last.

Browse Wichita Eagle, Kansas City Star, Topeka-Capital Journal, New York Times, or the Wall Street Journal! These newspapers arrive daily to our Reserve room.

Exercise: take a walk through the stacks, jog in place, do some planks.

Participate in Puzzles in Ablah Library! Play during all library hours through end of the day on Study Day, December 8. (Maybe longer, if the candy lasts.) Play jigsaw puzzles, coloring books, cards, and tabletop games such as Wonky, Choose One, chess, and Jenga at three stations on the main floor of Ablah Library. Take a braincation! 

Veg at the vend! Vending machines are located in the 24-hour study room. Cold coffee beverages, water and soda, cookies and chips will keep you fortified during study sessions.

Meditate on the amazing artifacts from the Anthropology Museum found throughout the main floor.

Take a few deep breaths. 

We’re rooting for you. Good luck with your finals!!
