This is the place were we add videos on movement and mindfulness most of which are 5 minutes long but none of which are longer than 10 minutes. Currently, we search YouTube for these videos, try them out for you, and if they’re decent we post them here. We’re always looking for suggestions so if you have a favorite creator or a go-to video let us know and we’ll share it with the world, or, at least the part of the world that visits the site. Finally, we are working on creating our own videos to share with you that focus on movement and mindfulness. Let us know what you love or hate about the videos posted here so we can use that feedback to make the highest quality content for you.
Tomato-Timer–There are many Pomodoro apps out there, but this is our favorite.
F*ck That: An Honest Meditation–This one contains adult language. It’s also a standby for a bad class or pointless meeting that doesn’t serve refreshments. Essentially, it’s a three minute chaser to the bitter parts of (academic) life.
5 Min Stretch at Your Desk–We love this quick yoga routine you can do while seated. It should make you feel a little bit better without garnering too many odd looks from your office mates.
Did you know that Rodney Yee has a desk yoga series?
This one is for your eyes because the graduate school eye strain is real. I recommend doing this one enough times that you don’t need to look at the screen to follow along thus enhancing benefits by fully resting your eyes.
This one is for your breathing. I recommend using this one when you need a grading break because students are tryin’ it.
This one is for your neck and shoulders and great to use if you are stressed out about deadlines, have been putting in some long hours writing, or both.
This one is for your whole back. Word of warning: this one may be more difficult if you have a rollie chair. Proceed with caution.
I don’t know why I love this video so much, but I do. Maybe it’s the combination of work shoes and grumpy faces. Perhaps best done with office mates you can convince to join you or when you have the office to yourself.
Probably your office mates won’t even notice if you do this video.
