This interactive presentation is for anyone who experiences stress in his or her life. The following questions will be addressed: What are the largest stressors college students face, what are effective ways that instructors can help students handle stress, and do techniques such as exercise, deep breathing, and meditation assigned in a specific course during a semester help decrease student stress? During this presentation preservice teachers will discuss ways in which participating in specific relaxation techniques influenced their stress levels as related to their general self-care. Participants will create an interactive graphic organizer based upon the information garnered in the presentation.
