20 Minute Stress Break

Feeling overwhelmed, run down, overworked, or just plain stressed out? No time or money to take a vacation or treat yourself to a day at the spa? 20 Minute Stress Break is your solution!

20 Minute Stress Break is a brief relaxation program provided for CU Students by trained volunteers from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). The volunteers provide relaxation exercise using meditation, imagery, body focused techniques, or deep breating.

Stress Break volunteers are available to come to residence halls, student groups, Greek chapters, classes, meetings, academic departments, and anywhere that stressed-out students can be found.

Guidelines for requesting programs:

  • Please make requests at least two weeks in advance. It increases the likelihood that we will be able to accommodate your needs and preferences.
  • If possible, be sure to send us at least 2-3 options for time and date of the program.
  • In making your request, please be specific about the details of the program and what you hope you and your group will get out of it.
  • We are often able to adapt programs to meet the needs of your group (eg size, level of training, role at the university, academic affiliations). Please be specific about who we will be working with so that we can tailor programs appropriately.
  • While we try to meet all requests, we are not always available to do so during high volume times of the semester. We will do our best to meet your needs or refer you to other campus and community resources that may be able to help.
