Stress Management & Mindfulness

Posted by Library Blog on 04/28/2017 at 09:03 AM

Good news: you have made it to exam time!

Bad news: sometimes exam time can be stressful.

The library’s collection contains resources in print and online that provide information on how to help manage exam stress. For example, The Zen of Law School Success discusses how to achieve and maintain balance in law school and includes selections on doing well on final exams, including specific strategies and tips for both essay and multiple choice exams. If you prefer a more straightforward (and less law school-related) resource, the library’s e-book collection includes Stress Management for Dummies which includes sections about breathing, posture, imagery and meditation. 

Last year we released an online LawGuide about Stress Management, Mindfulness and Wellness. This guide features resources in the library and outside the library to encourage mental wellness. The last page of the LawGuide is a photo tour of reflective spaces on the RWU Campus (pictures by the library’s own Kathleen MacAndrew!). 

Finally, we have a well-stocked coloring book collection. While there are some colored pencils and coloring pages in the stacks, there are also crayons, doodling books, and other coloring supplies, which can be borrowed at the circulation desk.

Breathe deeply, think positive thoughts, and good luck on exams!
