Exercise Bikes and Stress Free Zone

Sign that says "Stress Free"

De-Stress at Galvin Library: Thursday, April 26th through Thursday, May 3rd.


The research is clear: exercise is a great way to de-stress. We have partnered with Illinois Tech’s Psychology Department and Keating to get two exercise bikes in the library during finals! Pedal away on the northeast corner of the upper level at Galvin Library from Thursday, April 26th through Thursday, May 3rd.  This opportunity is brought to you by the Behavioral Health and Wellness program at Lewis College of Human Sciences.


Rather soothe than cycle? Check out our Stress Free Zone in Galvin Library from Thursday, April 26th through Thursday, May 3rd from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The zone is located in the Cherry Room near the Group Study Suite in the lower level of Galvin Library.


The zone will be a quiet space for relaxation and will include:

  • calming aromatherapy
  • listening stations with relaxing music
  • coloring stations for stress relief
  • low lighting for a relaxing atmosphere
  • therapeutic kinetic sand
  • information on relaxation techniques and self-care


Note: studying, cell phone usage, food, and conversation is not allowed in the zone

The Stress Free Zone is  brought to you by Paul V. Galvin Library and the Student Health and Wellness Center.

And remember, Galvin Library is open 24 hours for 13 days between study and finals weeks beginning Sunday, April 22 at noon to Friday, May 4 at 7 p.m.
