Last Stress Buster Day to be Held Tomorrow
Stress Buster Days, offered by Campus Recreation, are coming to a close.
The final Stress Buster Days event will be held tomorow at the Student Recreation Center.
The department has been offering free days at the center to help reduce stress, especially the type of stress that is particular to the fall season, said Juliette Moore, director of campus recreation.
UA students and employees, as well as community members off campus, are invited to visit the Student Recreation Center from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday to exercise.
Stress Buster Days was created to help students, employees and community members in what is arguably one of the most stressful times of the year.
Moore points to findings from an American Psychological Association survey that show people are increasingly concerned about the economy and, as a result, are experiencing higher levels of stress. That, coupled with the holiday season, makes for feelings of extreme burdens, resulting in unhealthy habits, the association found.
Beginning at 4 p.m., the UA center will have free massages, chiropractic diagnostics, cancer screenings, bio-feedback sessions and numerous other services, Moore said.
Also, other UA departments â€“ such as the Campus Health Service, Counseling and Psychological Services, Life & Work Connections, the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership, and others â€“ will be there with information about combating stress.
The intention is to "help our fellow co-workers," Moore said, adding that the center will also have special pricing offers on memberships during the final Stress Buster event.
