Have an Exam? Take a Breathing!
When: Monday, November 27, 2017 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Where: M-Building, MB10
Instructor: Malgorzata Marciniak, Ph.D.
As a student, you may be overwhelmed with the feeling of fear while taking exams. While the feeling may appear long before the exams, it will drain your good moods and good energy for several weeks. This often prevents proper preparation since just a simple thought of taking exams brings unbearable unpleasant- ness. The workshop will address this issue.
During the workshop participants will be exposed to sequential techniques that help with managing anxiety, in particular exam anxiety. The activities will include awareness of the breath, energy session, mindful moving session, alignment of thoughts with the breath and awareness of change. The event will open and close with brief meditation sessions. The energy session will be guided in a spirit of Qi Gong practice which is an ancient Asian art of energy cultivation.
Wear loose clothing, be prepared to take your shoes off and lay down on a yoga mat to take a breath that will bring relaxation and energy. Please arrive on time since the workshop is sequential and missing the first modules will significantly reduce the benefits from further modules.
