Keep Calm and Reflect

This blog post is the 2nd installment in a series featuring 7 Day Stress Less Challenge participants’ responses to questions we posted on social media.

December is Spiritual Wellness Month at Maryland.

We asked students where they like to go on campus to practice spiritual wellness and take time to reflect.


Spiritual wellness involves reflecting on life’s meaning and connecting with something larger than yourself which may or may not include participating in religious traditions.

Often engaging in spiritual wellness calls for us to pause and appreciate the world around us giving us a new perspective – something that can be a great stress-reliever.

Spiritual Wellness Ways to De-Stress

  • Take a meditative walk through the labyrinth at Memorial Chapel
  • Go to a free meditation session offered through the Health Center (offered Tues, Wed, & Thurs)
  • Find a peaceful place to journal
  • Sip mindfully on an herbal tea
  • Take a YogaFit group fitness class through CRS
  • Do deep breathing exercises and focus on the present moment
  • Go to a service in a spiritual or religious tradition meaningful to you
