Stress BallClemson’s Joseph F. Sullivan Center is now offering two six-week programs for faculty, staff and CU4Health members that are focused on physical activity and stress management.

The first session begins Wednesday, Jan. 13, and continues on Wednesdays during lunchtime through Feb. 17. The second session begins March 2 and continues on Wednesdays during lunchtime through April 20.

The classes run from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Sullivan Center, located at 101 Edwards Hall on Clemson’s campus. If the first group fills up, a second group will meet from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. The program is included in CU4Health membership; there is a $20 fee for individuals who are not members for CU4Health.

The first program, CU-Wellness, includes weekly physical activities, leisure coaching and related group discussions. The last week of the session will include a fun physical activity, goal evaluation and completion of an ongoing wellness plan.

The second program, Stress Management, will cover stress management techniques including relaxation, identifying stressors, various meditation styles, seated yoga and mindfulness. The techniques can be practiced at home and in other locations with minimal effort and time. The last week of the session will include mapping out an ongoing stress management plan and evaluating progress.
