10 Minutes of Mindful Breathing a Day = Better Performance

As a Fisher student, your academic pursuits are important to our world. We need strong, grounded business leaders. Stress is a fact of daily life. By learning to better manage your stress and be your best self.

Incorporate 10 minutes of slow, deep, sensory breathing into your daily routine. Do this before you go to sleep, while waiting for class to start, on the bus or anytime you notice stress. 

Research tells us that 60 minutes of sensory mindfulness activity a week causes actual physical changes in our brains which enable us to consistently respond in a less distressed, more focused manner. This activity can help you have better quality of sleep and wind down central nervous system resulting in less anxiety. This video will get you started.   

Also, our campus Student Wellness Center Meditation Resources : Student Wellness Center (osu.edu) offers mindfulness coaching and group meditation.

If you have access to Netflix, you can also watch Headspace Guide to Meditation and Headspace Guide to Sleep for helpful information and interactive activities.
