Marissa Mourer University Library

Take an intentional brain break in the University Library. There are two Library Brain Booth sessions offered weekly on a drop-in basis this semester: Wednesdays 10am-Noon in Library 114 and Thursdays 1pm-3pm in Library 208.

The Library Brain Booth seeks to introduce the Humboldt State community to scientific research on the effects of mindfulness, attention, and contemplation through hands-on tools and activities in an informal, experiential setting. Students are especially encouraged to explore the positive impacts that taking an intentional brain break can have on their academic success. Although the Library Brain Booth recognizes the contributions of people of all faiths and backgrounds to mindfulness and contemplation practices, it has no religious affiliation. People of all abilities, cultures, and faiths are welcome in the Library Brain Booth.
The Brain Booth is organized into several stations with the following available:
• Curated collection of books and DVDs
• Biofeedback machines
• Virtual reality goggles
• FitDesk exercise study bicycles
• Noise cancelling headphones
• Sound machines
• Light therapy lights (aka Seasonal Affective Disorder lamps)
• Chromebooks for trying guided meditations
• Adult coloring and doodling
• Board games (and a Nintendo Wii coming soon!)
• Contemplation activities

Learn more about the Brain Booth by visiting the webpage: http://library.humboldt.edu/brainbooth.html

The Library Brain Booth was made possible through the support of the HSU Sponsored Programs Foundation Incentives Grant. For information about the Library Brain Booth, including the research study underway, please contact principal investigator, Marissa Mourer, HSU Librarian for the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
