At California State University, Sacramento, students have several options for stress-busting. First is massage at their health center.
Ben Sloane is one of the two certified massage therapists at the health center five days a week for four hours a day. The massages aren't just for people with a physical ailments or injury. "About 80 percent of the people we see come in with problems related to stress," Sloane said.
Then there are Tai Chi classes, some of which can be taken for credit. And there is a club on campus that gives free yoga and meditation classes.
In addition to holding classes, members of the Yoga and Meditation club participate in activities like vegetarian cooking classes, off-campus hikes and group mediation events.
What CSU is really offering their students is lifelong strategies for health and combating stress. I give them an A+.
