Come and renew your mind with Mindfulness Arts & Questions with CAPS. Every Thursday at 4 p.m., trained CAPS Peer Educators will be at the Ethnic Resource Centers to facilitate mindfulness activities with students on a drop-in basis and answer questions about CAPS, mental health, and wellness.

Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. By using different mindfulness techniques, we get better at noticing and accepting what we are experiencing, struggling less with our thoughts and emotions, and often, reducing stress and distress in our day-to-day lives. Although mindfulness has its roots in Buddhist meditation, a secular (non-religious) practice of mindfulness has entered the mainstream of United States culture and psychology in recent years.
