Dealing with Day to Day Stressors

Whether you’re getting adjusted to life on campus, at the height of a deadline-driven project or simply dealing with the issues that arise, day in and day out, it’s important to take time to relax.

Case Western Reserve University offers multiple resources, including the RELAX Line and online guided relaxation exercises.


By calling 216.368.3999, you can access five different meditations designed to help you refocus, refresh, rejuvenate, renew and restore. (For best results, call from an on-campus phone.)

Each meditation ranges from one to 15 minutes; choose the one that best suits your needs for the day, or do multiple to gain even more benefit.
