Your guide to stress less week

Webbies can hold adorable puppies like this one on stress less day.

During the week of December 3rd, the peer advisors (PAs)  are hosting their annual stress less week! Different leadership groups will be organizing a variety of events around campus to help you destress every day of the week.

The PAs will also be promoting their sleep campaign. If you download the sleep tracker “Pillow” in the App Store, you can monitor your sleep quality and quantity. There will be PAs at each of the stress less events to record how much sleep you got. If the student body makes it to 8,000  hours in four days, we will have a school-wide pajama day on Friday, December 7th.

To make the action-packed week less stressful to navigate, here is a breakdown of each day’s activities.
