Mind/Body Options

Research has demonstrated that regular participation in activities that emphasize the connection between mind and body, such as yoga, tai chi, Pilates, meditation and mindfulness training, may prevent negative effects of stress such as insomnia, depression, anxiety and headaches. Such activities can also improve one's overall health and enhance resilience during times of stress.

The Mind/Body Team at UHS applies a holistic approach, one that emphasizes the connection between mind and body, to treating and preventing physical illnesses and psychological disorders. Team members provide mind/body interventions such as meditation, relaxation, cognitive therapy and mindfulness to address psychological and physical concerns.

There are numerous mind/body classes offered on campus, through Campus Recreation and other offices, to help members of the Princeton University maintain optimal health and beat stress. Individuals can also listen to a selection of audio guides for convenience stress reduction.
