    Beauty of Impermanence in Nature
    Find a safe and comfortable place outdoors, and take notice of any changes that are occuring in the present moment. Maybe an insect is moving around. Maybe the clouds are changing shape. Maybe leaves are falling from trees.
  • Monday
    Smile in the Mirror
    Take a moment and smile in the mirror. What do you notice? Smiling slows the heart, relaxes the body, and releases endorphins that counteract and diminish stress hormones.

    Mindfulness Meditation
    11 a.m. at BEL 22A. All are welcome, no experience necessary. Organized by the Center for Students in Recovery.

    Dots & Boxesl
    Grab a friend, a piece of dotted paper, and:
    1. Take turns connecting neighboring dots with lines (no diagonal connections).
    2. When your line finishes a box, put your initials inside.
    3. The game is over when all the dots are connected. Count the boxes, the player with the most wins.
