Restorative Spaces

Feeling tired or stressed?  Having a challenging day?  Need to gather your thoughts?

Consider taking a little quiet time for yourself to nourish your spirit and replenish your energy.  When the weather cooperates, there are lovely spaces all over campus to sit quietly.  But when it doesn't, consider dropping by one of the spaces below for a few minutes of quiet contemplation. When you take time for yourself to recharge, you're better able to care for yourself, be kind to others, and make a difference in the world.
