Promoting Active Study Breaks at the Library

Post Date:
Nov 27, 2017

The Queen’s Athletic & Recreation Centre (ARC) Get Your 150 campaign and Queen’s University Library are partnering to offer students a designated movement space while they study for their upcoming exams.

The designated movement space was created in one of campus’s most beloved study spaces: Stauffer Library, in answer to the inherently stationary nature of study. Students, staff and faculty who are looking for an active study or research break are invited to make use of this space on the southwest corner of the fourth floor, which will feature challenges for students, staff or faculty to get moving, with ideas for quiet activities, such as lunges, squats, planks, and yoga poses. Please see the Get Your 150 Facebook page for ideas and challenges.

Students using the designated movement space are reminded that they should bring their personal belongings with them to protect themselves against property loss. The space will be available from Monday November 27 until Thursday December 21.
