Anxiety and Stress Workshop

Posted on Monday, March 7th, 2016 by Kallie Eberling

This seems to be the time of the semester that everyone is stressed. We just got back from Spring Break, and it really just feels like it should have been Summer Break.

When the weather is this nice it’s hard to stay focused, which seems to add to the stress!

Tomorrow the Concordia Counseling Center will be hosting an Anxiety and Stress- Reduction Workshop. The event will be at 7 p.m. in the Jones A/B Conference Center.

The counseling center will be working to relieve students’ stress as well as teach us ways to cope with stress on our own. First, trained specialists will describe the science behind why a student feels anxious and stressed next, scientific coping methods will be taught and used. A guided meditation and imagery session will help students release stress. There will also be chair massages and yoga.

Beyond this students will be invited to play in the sandbox and take home free Kinetic Sand! There will be snack and “zentangling”: the art of de-stressing will be taught! Zentangling is a form of self-help art therapy.

Here is an example of a zentangle drawing!

Hi! My name is Kallie Eberling. I’m excited to be continuing my education this year at Concordia! I have finally decided, after changing my mind multiple times, on an English Education major. I hope to obtain a minor in Political Science, and I am thinking about law school upon graduation.

I’m from the small town of Plentywood, Montana. It’s located about 10 minutes from Canada and 15 minutes from North Dakota. We only have one stoplight, but we are the biggest town in our county!

At Concordia, I am involved in the forensics team and various clubs. I participate in policy debate in forensics, and really enjoy it!

I’m happy to share my experience here at Concordia, and I hope you can find some useful tips from my blog!
