Monthly Books are displayed on the 1st floor of Willis Library. 


Fostering Your Mental Health and Wellness

It's the beginning of the semester: new classes to take, new books to read, new people to meet, a new schedule to memorize...and when you think about everything all at once, it feels overwhelming. In times like these, your body and mind will thank you if you slow down, even if only for a moment. Mindfulness doesn't have to be an hour-long meditation or a sweaty yoga class—it can simply be taking a deep breath, or sitting outside in stillness for a few minutes and observing your surroundings. 

The truth is, your mental and emotional health are as important as your physical and academic wellbeing. It can be tricky, however, to begin practicing mindfulness without help. Here at Willis Library, we've collected an array of resources on mental health and wellness to assist you in your journey. Stop by our Monthly Books Display on the 1st floor to check out a book on managing your moods, or check out noted works like The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle below. 

“This is the real secret of life—to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” - Alan Watts
